    31. 31. Appendix<br />
    32. 32. Proprietary Technology #1<br />ZugMO (Zugara Motion Capture)<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />ZugMO is a computer interface that allows people to interact with their computer via their web cam rather than their keyboard or mouse. <br />With ZugMO a person’s movements, or motions, are captured by their web cam. This allows the person to interact with their system while several feet away.<br />
    33. 33. Proprietary Technology #2<br />ZugSTAR (Zugara STreaming AR)<br />ZugSTAR is a web based video conferencing technology that allows people in different locations to have shared AR experiences. Like other video conferencing systems ZugSTAR allows for two-way video transmissions, but with the added functionality of allowing people to interact with one another's “augmented” experience in real time. <br />DID YOU KNOW? Gartner IT predicts that by 2015 over 200 million people will be paying for video conferencing. <br />With ZugSTAR, Augmented Reality becomes a technology that facilitates collaboration. People no longer need to be in the same room to manipulate and discuss 3D models, as physical distance becomes less of a barrier.<br />
    34. 34. Proprietary Technology #3<br />ZugMUG (Zugara Facial Tracking)<br /> <br /> <br /> <br /> <br />ZugMUG is a piece of facial tracking software that allows the webcam to determine where a person’s face is within the video stream.<br />With ZugMUG a person’s face can become the “marker”, subsequently allowing for Augmented Reality executions where people no longer need to hold a piece of paper up to the webcam.<br />
    35. 35. Augmented RealityStatistics<br />
    36. 36. Augmented Reality Revenue<br /> Handheld platforms will transform the Augmented Reality ecosystem, with revenue associated with Augmented Reality growing from about $6 million in 2008 to more than $350 million in 2014. <br /> (ABI Research study “Augmented Reality: Adding Information to Our View of the World”)<br />
    37. 37. Worldwide Webcam Growth Rate<br /> Markets for webcams at $1.8 billion in 2008 are anticipated to reach $3.2 billion by 2015, growing in response to decreases in unit costs and increases. <br />(Wintergreen Research - Worldwide WebCam Market Shares, Strategies, and Forecasts, 2009-2015)<br />
    38. 38. Webcam Video Uploads on Facebook<br /> As of last March 2009, 40% of Facebook Video Uploads were via Webcam<br /> (Businessweek – Facebook Grows As A Video Platform)<br />
