AR Dev Amsterdam

  1. 1. AR Dev Amsterdam 17 APRIL 2010 Mediamatic Bank Welcome & Introduction Dan Brickley <>
  2. 2. Overview • Origins: the idea • Diversity: connecting expertise • AR Dev Amsterdam: plan for today
  3. 3. Thanks! • to Mediamatic, our hosts • to SoGeo Company, for lunch • and to everyone here for contributing!
  4. 4. • Started in early Dec’09; this is 7th already! • Next: Berlin April 24th; Vancouver in May... After nearly 20 years in the lab, Augmented Reality is taking shape ... overlaying and infusing the physical world with digital media, information and experiences. We believe AR must be fundamentally open, interoperable, extensible, and accessible to all, so that it can create the kinds of opportunities for expressiveness, communication, business and social good that we enjoy on the web and Internet today.
  5. 5. Previous topics (from wiki): Integrating location-based & image triggered AR Social Network interop Data formats Sensors and sensor networks RFID Data Representation in the Geospatial web Data Representation in mobile AR Data Representation in 3D Gaming “But I’m not iPhone / Android / W3C APIs an expert!” Business models Coordinate systems OAuth Art
  6. 6. Connecting Expertise • Huge diversity of experience in this room • Nobody can be an expert in everything AR • AR Dev Amsterdam approach: • an open chain linking apps, UI and data • relatively non-technical and short talks • self-organised parallel sessions in afternoon
  7. 7.
  8. 8. AR as iceberg...? From the bits we can see (3D, mobile, ...) the things that need to happen to get the right info where and when you need it. (open data, common formats, shared APIs,...)
