Weekly Linkfest

Quite an interesting batch of links we have today:

It seems that I have never posted here about Greg Tran’s work on augmented architecture. Which is a pity. I had the following video opened as a tab in my browser for a long time, just waiting to be published, and somehow I forgot about it. Luckily, Yanko Design posted another video of Tran’s work, which served as a necessary reminder:

Have an excellent week!

It’s been a busy summer for me, sorry for not posting the weekly linkfest in, well, a weekly manner. If you want more frequent updates from me, you should follow me on twitter

This week’s video comes to us via Etsuji Kameyama’s blog. I often complained about not having the AR equivalent of Angry Birds (ARAB). Well, we are not there yet, but Junaio now features a channel with the boids, enabling users to take picture with them. Even though it’s a wholly new media, still nobody likes the boomerang bird.

 

 Have a great week!

A downpour of augmented reality links for you today:

In the last week Bruce Sterling has posted several demo videos of AR projects done by Art Center College of Design (Pasadena) students. The class, which is sponsored by Layar (very wise move!) and guided by Sterling, resulted with some interesting ideas, from AR religion to Bitcoin treasure hunt, but I liked most Dobu Dobu, an “augmented reality app to create love, companionship and friendship through adoption of virtual pets”.

Have a Dobu Dobu week!

I’m a bit sleepy today, so please excuse any increase in grammar mistakes.

before I fall to sleep, here’s a very short video illustrating Minecraft brought to the real world using augmented reality (more specifically, using Kudan’s Qoncept engine). 

enjoy your week!

Slow week, or am I at fault for not paying attention to the augmentosphere?

This week’s video is without a doubt this one from The Heavy Projects – I never got so many retweets as I did after tweeting about it (if you don’t follow me I’m @augmented). Harnessing the power of Junaio, the billboards of Times Square are repainted with original street art. I think the guys from Artvertiser had this idea first, but it’s pretty neat to see it actually implemented. I just wonder whether it’s ok with Junaio’s terms of use.

Have a great week!

Weekly Augmented Reality Linkfest

If you missed it, we’ve got it, in this week’s linkfest:

This week’s video comes from Toyota Motor Europe and the Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design, which re-imagined a car’s window for an excibition, and named it “Window to the World”. The result is very attractive, as is evident by the half a million views this video got in the past last week. You probably have already seen it, but if not, here’s a good place to read more about it.

Have a splendid week!

Oh my, what an interesting week for augmented reality, especially in the business front:

This week’s video features a cool street art by SWEZA named QRadio. Graffiti boom-boxes around Berlin start to play music when the QR code drawn on them is scanned.  Via Wooster Collective.

Have a great week!
