AR Weekly Digest N.9

This digest I would like to make even more fun so I will fill it with videos about AR, but first I would like to pay everyone’s attention to the competition our studio is taking part in – Augmented Planet Readers Choice Awards 2012. We have nominations in three categories:

  1. GlorAR as Favourite reality browser of 2012
  2. Bugs Mayhem as Favourite AR app
  3. AR23D as Favourite Platform for Development

If you have time and will we will be glad you to vote for us. All voters will be entered into a prize draw to win a Kindle Fire.

And now videos:

1) This is how Google Glass Team plans to see the nearest future

2) This is the possible future for the use of AR in education

3) At CEATEC 2012 Pioneer has showed off the production version of its AR HUD. It is, as its name implies, an augmented reality navigation unit that shows you where to go using a front-facing camera and a variety of systems. The head unit recently became available in Japan

4) EPFL scientists are developing another prototype of a pair of “augmented” glasses. Wearers will be able to read messages, look at agendas and receive a variety of information directly on the lenses.

5) Ford uses Augmented Reality in its marketing campaign

6) Google has released more footage snapped with it’s Project Glass glasses, this time from the behind the scenes at the DVF runway during New York Fashion week (which was covered in previous digest).
