Augmented RealityThe future of computer interfacing or dangerous gimmick?
Contents• What is Augmented Reality?• How is AR used today?• How could it be used in the future?• What are the safety implications?• What are the social implications?
AR… • Do you remember the scouter for Dragon Ball Z?• Are you aware the head-up display is a form of AR?
An Introduction to AR• Augmentation means to either add or supplement something.• Augmentation is a real –time element that is in relation to environmental real world elements.• AR has many potential and current services available to many businesses and people.• AR is a growing application and is only going to get bigger and better.
AR NowCurrent uses for AR
Google - Project Glass• Project glass is effectively a smart pair of glasses with an integrated HUD and a battery hidden inside the frame.• Approached Google for information but they cannot discuss any aspect of the design.
Google - Project Glass
Navigation• GPS Systems.• One example of implementing augmented reality into Navigation is Wikitude Drive.
Tourism• There are a number of applications for augmented reality in the tourism industry.• Interactive Kiosk.
Military• Military applications of augmented reality are probably amongst the most well known. They include;• HUD (Heads-Up Display)• HMD (Head Mounted Display)
Gaming• With recent advances in computing technology and power, applications of augmented reality in the gaming sector are on the rise.• Zombie ShootAR • Ingress
Maintenance and Repair• Augmented reality enables mechanics to use a head worn display to aid them in the maintenance/repair process.
Advertising and Promotion • VW implement augmented reality in their Beetle Advertising. • Avatar
Medical• Neurosurgery is at the pinnacle when it comes to medical applications for augmented reality. Augmented reality can be used for;• Augmenting patients brain• Training Medical Students
Safety and ARJust how safe is it?
Safety & AR• Safety is massive issue in technology.• Whether Pro or Con.• Augmented reality no exception.
Pro’s• Already a market for compensatory vision and hearing.• Market worth more that $10 Billion a year.• Imagine a device that lets you zoom in or increases hearing • Imagine the impact on someone already impaired • The idea of “Super Man Senses”
Pro’s• Medical applications• Massive potential with AR• Easy reference to aid diagnosis• Showing chart or vitals from facial recognition?
Pro’s• Safety and Driving.• Up-to-date stream of information• Tells you about accidents in a radius of your vehicle.• Same with natural disasters or oil .• The “Sat-Nav” could perform more than just simply a set of directions to tell you where to go!
Con’s• Having a number of health issues I get the brunt of a lot of technology. • My current bane is 3D Tech. • Soon it seems, it might be AR.
Con’s• Distractions are going to be one of the things which will plague AR.• Wearing an AR device, you may be assailed by many kinds of information. Advertisements are already everywhere.• When companies can have them in front of your eyes, why wouldn‟t they?
Con’s• 3D Technology can cause migraines.• Flashing lights on games can cause epilepsy.• Augmented Reality could mix both issues.• Health issues grow when mixed with social issues.• Imagine your health status on display for some conditions?• Employers, people in the street, nothing will be private.
Social and PrivacyHow will AR affect our personal lives?
Taking an AR walk
Privacy• Targeted advertising can be used in new ways.• Public information is easier to link to a person.• Information held about us may colour how others interact with us.• Criminals can use public information in new ways to aid crime.
Social Impact• More pressure to be „Always On‟• May shape our first impressions of others• May help shape our shopping habits• Fear of what others know about us may inhibit social interaction
Too early to tell?• Personal AR not yet available• 2 views exist, Google‟s utopian view and critics dystopian view• No doubt there are useful applications but there are just as many bad• You have seen just a few here from both sides• We will leave you to decide which side of the fence you sit on
Two views• The following links are first to the view of what project glass is hoping to achieve, the second a mockup of how far augmented reality could go without regulation.• Click here to take a look at Project Glass• Click here for an extreme AR example
