The following are additions that were not discussed at the Detroit meetup.
!! https://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/100430 (What Augmented Driving Will Feel Like, a SXSW presentation by Theo Calvin.)
I wish I had known about the projects and gentlemen above before my Detroit talk.
Do read the article by Alex Roy.
Please vote for Teo Calvin's SXSW proposal.
Thank you very much to Jacob, Rahul and Altimetrik for making this happen. It was a blast! A description of the event, and an introduction to Collider is here.
Hyperreality by Keiichi Matsuda
The Nissan video features outstanding visuals.
The above link is a MUST for anyone with a serious investment in AR.
You can see all of my adventures with Bubiko elsewhere on this blog. We would be grateful for your votes for two proposals for SXSW.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR VOTE!
This book is a "living" book. Meaning if you buy it, you will get the updated editions free.
BONNETS! (My Powerpoint looks extremely low tech. As much as I like this look, I have to say I had no choice. I was using my Chromebook , and used the baked in slide show creator. Next time, I might actually have the time to do some design work.)
DC Rainmaker does his usually outstanding job of reviewing a bicycle-related product.Jump into the video at about the 4 minute mark to see some exemplary AR techniques. Click here to see more examples and ideas related to AR+ Bicycles.
Cannondale, for the win! A great example of functional AR in an everyday situation, as opposed to a factory or medical facility.
From a presentation I did on AR and bike safety. All of those concepts need to be unified and rethought for the age of AR.
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.
Stunt driver: Norm Black.
No AR characters were harmed in the production of this rest.
The AR Podcast is a must for anyone serious about AR. This is a link to the extremely informative and important interview with four of the people involved with OARC.
Thank you Sergei!
One style of point cloud rendering.
Another way to render a point cloud. There are many ways to create point clouds and they must be interoperable.
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?
One of Magic Leap's views on how the total AR world might look like.
The layers presented include IoT (the Internet of Things, as well as AI. Photo courtesy of Tony at the Skarred Ghost, another person I suggest serious AR/VR people support and follow.
Another presentation from Magic Leap on how the total AR Cloud might look. They use the term "Magicverse".
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.
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.
This is from the State of the Open AR Cloud 2019 report by the Open Augmented Reality Cloud group. Already some governing bodies are being formed.
The report is free. Get it here.
The League of American Bicyclists has an active interest in AR and AV.
And the amazing BabbleRabbit! https://twitter.com/BabbleRabbit/status/1115271007315615750
An AV by May.
Shenzhen's celebration used the entire city as a canvas. Something like this could be done in Detroit with AR, for much less cost, and with greater detail. AVs could travel on programmed routes... a new form of musical is born!
My report on the maker culture of Shenzhen is here.
The Fox Theatre is one of Detroit's cultural assets that could be utilized. This slide shows some of the layers of creation and co-operation that need to be considered.
An example of an urban AR project, this one by Snapchat. This article also raises questions about AR in public spaces.
Diego! DIA! https://www.dia.org/art/rivera-court
Go to the "0.52" mark to see the actual AR clip. It is very brief.
The video on this site by Artivive showcases some possibilities in regards to AR + flat art. https://artivive.com/walkietalkie/
Apple's AR Art program. https://www.apple.com/newsroom/2019/07/apple-offers-new-augmented-reality-art-sessions/
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.
So there ya go! Any questions ask below.
I am available for consultation and all kinds of AR producing, as well as photography, video, art and writing projects. Thank you for any ideas and/or opportunities.
And again, please consider voting for our two SXSW presentations:
