Welcome to “games alfresco” where I vow to sensuously take the pulse of the new field of Augmented Reality (AR). They say it will reinvent interactive entertainment. And I believe it’s best played outdoors – alfresco.
If it’s your first time, start the journey by observing augmented reality through my eyes with the Top 10 AR Demos post.
If you’re into hardware – you’ll find solace with the Top 10 AR Devices, always a top post.
As a game developer, you’ll probably hang out in the Top 10 AR Engines area – a constantly evolving field.
Don’t miss the most exhaustive collection of Augmented Reality links on the web (right bar), including: vision, history, demos, software engines & tools, hardware, organizations, books, Influencers, and AR blogs.
Games alfresco has been on the air since March 2008 and is frequently referenced in the Augmented Reality community. Students study it in Computer Science classes; its “top ten” lists are being debated in conferences, and rumors say (don’t believe the hype) investors consult with this blog when making investments in related companies.
We are fortunate and grateful for the contribution of industry luminaries and leading companies in the space. Our aim is to induce a discussion that will spearhead AR into the main stream, so please consider this an invitation to join the discussion.
Games Alfresco is complemented with a facebook group we founded to serve as a community forum for discussing, sharing and promoting experiences in augmented reality games.Sigal Arad Inbar
