OK... the title. AR changes so quickly that a list of any sort of "avante-garde" will be outdated in an embarrassingly short time. When I made this "State of the ARt 2018 " list for my presentations at HK PolyU, I had to make additions to it a day or two after it went up...and then I just moved on.
However, in the past few months, and especially in the past few days, I have seen some very cool ideas, and simply want to share them. I saw these at the ARIA conference at MIT, the Virtual Hackathon at MIT, at SXSW, and as a result of my own research. I recently spent time in Shenzhen, and saw some cool things, but they weren't AR. I did write this.
Except for Bose and Leo, I haven't experienced any of the following...
6dai (I've known about them for a while, but they seem to release interesting updates very often)
<sneak preview 1> We love creativity at @6d_ai - here’s what our amazingly creative engineers can do at a music festival. Find people & segment them *in real-time on a phone* (and color them red!). Sets us up for believable occlusions & mixed reality in real world scenes pic.twitter.com/rpG7xGbUul— Matt Miesnieks (@mattmiesnieks) April 15, 2019
Admix AR are giving away many valuable resources, like a list of places that might consider writing about your product or company. Also, check them out on Facebook.
Arilyn Weekly Update. Good for seeing AR being used in advertising +
I’ve been testing the new #AR app @BabbleRabbit from @patchedreality which uses @6d_ai tech, by ramping up the occlusion difficulty level of the environment. The rabbit did not disappoint in my living room - a challenging environment for humans and rabbits. Occlusion is sweet!! pic.twitter.com/jnrBM7Vqzd— Eduardo Siman (@Namenode5) April 11, 2019

If you are interested in my AR experiences and much more, click here.
I would love to jump into other AR projects, as a producer, writer, visual artist or sound/music producer.
Oh yeah... no one has paid me for any of the listings. I am doing something with Novaby, but the Black Hawk AR project is something special; I would mention it regardless of my involvement with Novaby.
