What Augmented Driving Will Feel Like, a SXSW presentation by Theo Calvin.

Avatar  A digital creation used to represent a person, possibly resembling a human, possibly not.

Augmented Reality  To ‘augment’ means to make something greater; to give it more power. The platform called ‘augmented reality’ is a network that adds digital information to real objects. Machines are needed to do this, and  to see the results. Thus, augmented reality is the real world and the digital information added to it, as well as the machines enabling us to experience both at the same time.See R3

   Digital information could be in the form of a 3D model of a real object made by a computer, like the furniture in AR apps made by Ikea, Wayfair and other companies.  Pokemon Go and Snapchat are other examples of AR. However, the digital information could also be live or pre-recorded video, music, podcasts,medical imagery, industrial blueprints, text information or many other types of content.

   A mobile phone, tablet, HMD (head mounted device) or eyewear is needed  to see/hear/feel the digital content.

   AR will change everything, even more than radio, television, computers and mobile phones.

Autonomous Vehicles  Vehicles capable of sensing their environment, making decisions and navigating without human input. AVs require the safest, most efficient AR data networks possible.

Augmented World Expo (AWE)  Over ten years old and still visionary. Recommended: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WX-geVGmOvY

B

Billboarding The term used to describe a common procedure when positioning models in AR. Billboard means that the front view of the 3D model faces the viewer. Most AR apps allow the user to rotate the model so that another side of the model is presented to the viewer.

Bubiko in the starting position; ie billboarded.

Bubiko Foodtour AR’s first superstar, a character created by Stephen Black and Sayuri Okayama. Bubiko is one of the results of a two year food/AR research trip in Southeast Asia. Bubiko is a trailblazer who shares her AR experiences with the general public as well as with AR practitioners. Bubiko often forms partnerships, such as one with Green Bean Boy, a character made by Dominique Wu at Hummingbirdsday Studios http://www.hummingbirdsday.com/. Other collaborations are planned with the Dundercats, by Six Cat Studios https://www.sixcatstudios.com/journal/2018/4/24/the-dundercats, and creations by David Severn http://david-severn.com/ . The 3D version of Bubiko was created by Novaby. https://www.novaby.com/

Charlie Fink's Metaverse - An AR Enabled Guide to AR & VR

Cloud see R3

Computer vision Computers use lenses, radar and many kinds of sensors to learn about the world. These different ways of “seeing” are often combined with Artificial Intelligence(AI). The end result is that computers recognize objects as well as the many kinds of information connected to them.

Convergence

Convergence author and Forbes columnist Charlie Fink tells the story of Augmented Reality (AR), a new technology that's already seeping into every smartphone and every workplace. AR's merger with new 5G and AI technologies will unleash a wave of innovation that will enable wearable, invisible, latency-free and ubiquitous computing. The book uses a kind of mobile AR called "marker AR" to allow readers to use their smartphone to bring pages to life, demonstrating with art and entertainment how the world, and every person, place, and thing, will be painted with data. https://www.amazon.com/Convergence-World-Will-Painted-Data/dp/0578460556/

E

Edge computing There are advantages to processing data as close to the user as possible, especially in regards to the Internet of Things. This means, to a large extent, a decentralized system. This localized/decentralized approach is called edge computing.

https://www.networkworld.com/article/3224893/what-is-edge-computing-and-how-it-s-changing-the-network.html

End User The person who uses the app or device. Always important, but especially when the product is meant for a specific demographic, like the elderly.

Eye Tracking The measurement of eye motion and activity.

Bubiko and the Pierogi

Bubiko's guide to AR is now available on Amazon!

Bubiko is a little chef from Thailand. Her favorite food is mango sticky rice, and her favorite expression is "Aroi mak mak", which means very delicious in the Thai languge. Sayuri Okayama and I have been brainstorming about food and augmented reality since 2016, when we used a paper version of Bubiko.

Finally, in July 2019, we had a 3D version of Bubiko. Novaby did a great job, and using the Facebook Spark and Facebook Camera apps, we were ready to augment reality with our little chef. The Facebook Camera idea and tech support were thanks to Dana.

Whiting, Indiana is home to both the Mascot Hall of Fame, and the Pierogi Festival. We decided to visit both on the same weekend, and had Bubiko's balloons decorated accordingly. Later, we took Bubiko to pierogi festivals in Detroit, Michigan and Toledo, Ohio.

Food and AR

End User or End Product

Is AR being used to create a user experience or an image to be used for publicity, marketing or other purposes?

Image made with Facebook Camera. Here Bubiko is promoting the event. Because this was made with FB Camera, Bubiko cannot be moved; once Dana set her position, she could not be moved.

Food close-up with Bubiko branding. Bubiko is our flagship, our beta tester. For now we have only one pose, but other poses and animated movements are in the works. Ultimately we aim to be the Pixar of AR; original characters, stories and software.
As seen on an iPhone 6 in Japan.
Scaling and size can be variable. This image was created with Spark AR which, unlike Facebook Camera, allows for different positioning and size of the model. Here Bubiko poses with the Licorice Guy and the Licorice Gal, one of the few non-pierogi vendors at the Pierogi Festival in Whiting.

Bubiko is part Hello Kitty, part Anthony Bourdain. During our time in SE Asia, we did extensive research on local foods, as evidenced by Bubiko's Instagram account. Bubiko also did a photo book on the food of Ipoh, Malaysia and is planning one on Shenzhen, China.

The Open Augmented Reality Cloud people are making efforts to establish a geopost standard. If you are serious about AR, follow their efforts, or better join them and let your voice be heard!

What you see is a test I did with Bubiko. While I was in a car, I positioned her in the road ahead. We then drove forward. It is not clear, and I will redo this test.

But what happened is that Bubiko was in front, then she appeared in the car, and then we saw her in the road behind us. She did not move with/in relationship to the car.

This was using Facebook Spark AR. Technical support: the amazing Dana.

One style of point cloud rendering.

SLIDE 16

Another way to render a point cloud. There are many ways to create point clouds and they must be interoperable.

SLIDE 17

An example of an organization that has information that would be useful for AR in Detroit. Geographic Information Services… How much of what is under the road do they have records of? This info would be necessary for many AR services,

How do they make pointclouds-or do they even do this yet?

SLIDE 18

SLIDE 19

Another presentation from Magic Leap on how the total AR Cloud might look. They use the term "Magicverse".

SLIDE 20

A representation by the OARC on what the layers of the cloud would be. My suggested terms would be REAL1 (R1), REAL2 (R2) and REAL3 (R3). R1=the physical world. R2; the layer with few changes; buildings, landmarks, geography. R3 being the part of the AR cloud that changes the most, and has the most segmentation.

This system also lends itself to further classification. R2C22 , for example, could refer to a specific block in Chicago for example, and R2C22E could be the collective "channel" for all organizations utilizing traffic emergency communications for that area.

SLIDE 21

Microsoft Azure Spatial anchor systems. 'Anchor systems' refers to geoposing. There can be an endless number of clouds. Interoperability... Machines reading the world for humans... A browser...AI assisted browsers.

Back to bROADWAY… and we have "discovered" that the Fox Theater is geofenced. Geofencing is a blocking of AR access. Military bases, sensitive areas...the interior of homes. The Fox Theatre is copyrighted, I believe. In this fictional example, Fox may have geofenced their theater to prevent unauthorized AR usage.

Yes, this is Austin in July, but this building always reminds me of a very cold morning in the Boston Public Market!

Inside of Capital Factory, in downtown Austin. Very fortunate to discover CF an hour before they had two networking events on that same night! The story of my technical emergency is briefly described at the bottom of this post.

Bubiko Foodtour test: Facebook Spark vs. Facebook Camera

Bubiko's guide to AR is now available on Amazon!

Novaby: 3D Model of Bubiko

Dana De Moreira S Hagan: Technical Support

Bubiko Foodtour's AR life began at the Tech in the Tenderloin event in San Francisco. Since that time, I have conducted tests like this, and this, in order to prepare for AR cinematography projects.

This post presents lessons learned with the Facebook Spark application, and compares Spark to a different AR application called Facebook Camera.

The 3D model of Bubiko is the same in both the Camera and Spark tests. The balloons were slightly modified, as one features Tech in the Tenderloin, and the other feature Reggy, the mascot of the Mascot Hall of Fame.

Color correction was made, in both cases, with the 'auto' function. Spark is brighter than Camera.

Spark allows the camera person to move around the model, as though it were a physical object. Spark also allows the size of the model to become different sizes. With Facebook Camera, the position and size of the model are locked. Only the front of the model can be seen, like a 2D image. Like a postage stamp.

In this case, Dana positioned Bubiko on the bottom right. We checked this position so that it also works in landscape mode. However, landscape mode seems to be unstable, based on my experiences. Fb Camera often enlarges and turns the background scene, like this:

Facebook Camera version (Sometimes using the landscape format works properly, sometimes it doesn't. In this case, I gave up after restarting five times.)
Spark version

Note the size of the pictures in the last two examples. Spark uses the dimensions of a mobile phone, Camera produces a more conventional image.

Finally: saving images. Spark, in my case, saved images directly into the iPad photo album.

Facebook Camera, on the other hand... Unless you actively go into the Facebook Archive feature, and turn it on, the images are only stored for 24 hours! I am hoping there is a way to retrieve some images I made, but so far have not been able to find a way to bring them back. Frustrating, as I am 99.9% sure I pressed "save" on the Facebook Camera app.

All images were created with an iPad.

Happy to reply to any questions or comments. Thanks for stopping by!

..............................................

I have to thank Dana Moreira S Hagan A LOT. For personal reasons, I unexpectedly found myself in Austin on a Tuesday, with the need to have the new version of Bubiko loaded in my tablet by 1PM the following Saturday.

On Wednesday, I went to Facebook, presented them with this letter:

Although I was told they would get back to me, they haven't. After constant searching, including meeting the very helpful PJ and Ramona at Impact Hub, I discovered Capital Factory. There were two events going on that night (Thursday), but two people, Brance Hudzietz and Erin Miller, put my request out on two different networks!

Finally, on Friday, about 6, I discovered Erin Ford at General Assembly. Thanks to Erin, about 7PM I started a phone conversation with Dana. Dana did not have the Mac-with-Mojave that was so desperately needed, but she did come through with the idea to use Facebook Camera which was an even better choice for testing.

Dana is great! https://dhagandev.github.io
