Transcript of "AR: A view of the future with Microsoft technologies "

  1. 1. What will be covered• What is Augmented Reality?• Different approaches to AR (platform agnostic)• How AR is being used today• Evolution of Personal AI• Demo• The Future
  2. 2. What is Augmented Reality?“A live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environmentwhose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory inputsuch as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.” - Wikipedia
  3. 3. What is Augmented Reality?“A view of the world through a digital “lens”, which allows the scene tobe changed or appear differently than the real-world environment.” - Jared Bienz
  4. 4. Issues• Connectivity• Ownership• User interface
  5. 5. „When cut off from the network, or separated from our devices, we areforced to revert to behaviours that are dictated only by our surroundings,which is at best frustrating, and at worse debilitating.‟Keiichi Matsuda A Domesti/City, The Dislocated home in augmentedspace
  6. 6. AR Approaches
  7. 7. Vision-Based (Games & Apps)+No sensors required (only access to camera feed)+Existing libraries for tracking tags (code is fairly simple)-Tied to specially printed tags (in range, good angle) 3DS Wonderful Augmented Reality Games-CPU intensive Kogan concept app http://youtu.be/yk3rSX-vOVw http://youtu.be/zHpd_f_68oA
  8. 8. Sensor-Based (Games & Apps)+Requires no printed tags+Not nearly as CPU intensive Live Butterflies Viewer / Game-Code is more complex (due to dealing with sensors)-Most current examples are tied to a fixed location-Requires sensors PhotoSynth for Windows Phone & iPhone http://youtu.be/gO43NOXgzyE http://photosynth.net/
  9. 9. Sensor-Based AR Virtual World + Camera and Sensors = Augmented World SLAR Toolkit - slartoolkit.codeplex.com
  10. 10. Geo Augmented Reality TexMex TexMex Automatically Augmented Real World Object + Your Location and + Generated = World Location Direction (sensors) Virtual World Geo AR Toolkit - gart.codeplex.com

  12. 12. Microsoft PixelSense http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/pixelsense/default.aspx
  13. 13. Physical Interaction Based (Apps) http://youtu.be/jod6rfV7tBs
  14. 14. „We believe that technology has huge potential to transform the waysin which blind and partially sighted people get out and about. That iswhy weve worked with Microsoft to develop a concept of how thingsmight look soon, if we all pull together to make our vision a reality.‟To get involved contact:letsmakeithappen@guidedogs.org.uk
  15. 15. http://youtu.be/ZXKT8ysNLBUThe full Family Day Out Video is from the microsite at:http://www.guidedogs.org.uk/inspiring-future-technologies
  16. 16. Evolution of personal AI Brand lifestyle Evolution of guidance decision engines Opt-in alternative to invasive on-line tracking Multiple AI accessible from everywhere
