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!

Before we begin with our weekly pile of links, here’s a message from Christine Perey on behalf of “the program committee of the Third International AR Standards meeting”:
The committee has decided to extend the deadline for position papers to June 6th (5 PM UK). Please find more information and guidelines for the position papers: http://www.perey.com/ARStandards/third-meeting-position-papers/
Now, back to our regular programming:
This week’s video goes to you Dr. Who fans – I’ll never understand your ways. Sean McCracken
apparently does, and thus created this Android app, available on the Android market to display an augmented version of the TARDIS. Everlasting glory to the first fan who will create a video of Daleks shouting “augment! augment!”
Have a nice week, and good luck Noora

To my many readers coming from Japan – my heart goes to you, and I hope your families are safe. It’s difficult to discuss “augmented reality” in the face of “tragic reality”, but I’ll do my best with this week’s linkfest.
This week’s video is a call for help to create the first crowed sourced AR music video. Led by students of Tokyo’s Temple University, fans of the British band Songdog are invited to contribute their own clips featuring an AR marker. According to their site (where you can find more details) “Augmented Reality is used to symbolize all that one can remember, but that is lost forever – you can see it, but you can’t touch it”. A beautiful idea that I hope will come true in spite of the unexpected challenges facing it.
Have a good week!

Time again for another bout of augmented reality links:
- Keep calm and carry on: the United Kingdom is looking to use augmented reality in the fight against terrorism. Have an idea on how to make this happen? help them out.
- Apple patents augmented reality first-person shooting games. Not that they are the first ones who thought about it.
- Augmented Planet holding their second annual Readers Choice Award. There’s a Samsung phone to be won.
- Layar shows off its interesting spectrum of layers, applications and games “Creating Impactful Augmented Reality Experiences“. (via @)
- The ARDrone is not the only robot avatar to augmented reality. From France comes Sparx.
- Nice promotional game from Zugara, leveraging their virtual wardrobe software for having some fun.
This week’s video shows the creative things you can do using computer vision, projector and balls. It’s called Bounce, and apparently was made by Eberhard Gräther as a student project. If you like it, I suggest checking Gräther’s site for other interesting (non AR related) projects:

Have a great week!

I’m back! (but not for long, following the augmented reality event I’ll be mostly offline for three weeks). Speaking of augmented reality events, this week’s linkfest is full of talks from other events that took place recently:
This week’s video demonstrates cooking with AR, a video showcasing some of Yoo Kyoung Noh’s concepts presented in her Object 2.0 project – a concept proposal for the system of the near future, where the Internet is integrated into physical objects and spaces. Via Beyond The Beyond:
Have a great week!

Normally, I’ll wait with this kind of news till the weekly linkfest. But, hey, then I’ll miss on this scoop (and I’m really hoping this will get me a Pulitzer!). Zugara, makers of the Fashionista application and ZugSTAR, have just released an iPhone application aimed at providing you with the latest augmented reality news.
Named ARWire, this app gives you access to major augmented reality blogs and AR related twitter users (yes, I’m there :)), as well as to zugara’s AR group over at Facebook.
They offer an ad supported free version, and a premium version that I can’t quite locate on the appstore. Now, where are my royalties?
