Sweet augmented reality still from Avatar. Nice graphs and charts! But the coup de grace? Home Tree itself of course.

An inspiring use of technology, operating on the Windows Mobile platform, that helps visually impaired users “see” the world around them using image and object recognition.

Check out the impressive video:

Wormland Fashion in Germany has integrated QR codes into their display windows for a really cool mobile AR experience. Use daqri and scan it and check out the video; it’s an engrossing piece of work.

Augmented reality: let the learning applications begin!
A unique German AR app - TieSight - allows users to learn how to tie several different classic tie arrangements using a mirrored image created via their laptop video camera. 
Here’s a screenshot of TieSight in action:

Pretty nifty. What other learning applications of augmented reality would you like to see? The possibilities are endless!

Augmented Reality + Architecture = Possibilities

Check out this amazing video meditation on the possibilities of Augmented Reality for an architecture firm. The author of this video, a Thesis Prize Winner at Harvard Graduate School of Design this year, takes AR concepts way past their first few iterations and imagines a world where this new medium is immersive, creative, useful and most importantly, possible. 

Cuelight is an amazing augmented reality system that augments light effects on a flat surface. In this video, Cuelight is used on a pool table, and to great effect! #mesmerizing

Another cool AR company - check out Aurasma’s great presentation at DEMO this year!

We’ve seen a lot of really neat processor-intensive visual uses of AR, but let’s not forget the audio aspects that smartphones and the like can take advantage of, such as geo-tagged tours or informative guides. Check out the Toozla app above for example.

What is life without music, anyway?

Singapore’s Asian Civilizations Museum is using AR to showcase the famed Terracotta warriors of yesteryear. Pretty cool, huh? Check out the application here.

More from the University of South Australia’s wearable computer lab: “We allow a designer to digitally airbrush on to artifacts using a virtualized stencil.”

SOLD! :)

Great job guys!
