Tonchidot Madness: The Video

"Social Augmented Reality Mobile Location-based Service: “Sekai Camera” (World Camera)."
Google could and probably will develop a website (a-la AdWords) where every business in the planet will be able to geo-tag their shop, service etc… for free. But the trick is that you could tag not only your business name, but also place ads. And of course Google will charge for this service… In Enkin’s video demonstration, we see an example with a hospital and a subway station geo-tagged and visible live through augmented reality. Now replace this with a restaurant or a shop. This shop pays Google to advertise so below their business name, the tag would also display for example a promotion for an article. Just imagine the potential! This concept has the potential of becoming something similar to what adwords is to Google: a drastic profit machine! On top of that, Google could license the service to TomTom or other GPS manufacturers, so in your car you will actually see in real-time the directions and tags through a live video, instead of the boring 3D-graphics we all know.

Bokode: Imperceptible Visual Tags for Camera Based Interaction from a Distance
Could it be the next RFID+AR mashup? I can see it in pointer apps, tag a space etc.
"Current optical tags, such as barcodes, must be read within a short range and the codes occupy valuable physical space on products. We present a new low-cost optical design so that the tags can be shrunk to 3mm visible diameter, and unmodified ordinary cameras several meters away can be set up to decode the identity plus the relative distance and angle. The design exploits the bokeh effect of ordinary cameras lenses, which maps rays exiting from an out of focus scene point into a disk like blur on the camera sensor. This bokeh-code or Bokode is a barcode design with a simple lenslet over the pattern. We show that an off-the-shelf camera can capture Bokode features of 2.5 microns from a distance of over 4 meters." Annotated link

BBC NEWS | Technology | Mobile phones get cyborg vision
Endless possibilities for bleeding edge digital travel guides.
a view of the world tagged with rich, location-relevant information whilst your gaze flickers here and there. But now this Augmented Reality (AR), as it is known, is materialising in the real world. Mobile phone operators, at least, are hoping it will be the next big thing as programmers learn to corral all the bells and whistles of smart phones - GPS, video, accelerometers - into "killer applications". For the first time such AR is available for handsets.
"Via the video function of a mobile phone's camera it is now possible to combine a regular pictorial view with added data from the internet just as the fictional Terminator was able to overlay its view of the world with vital information about its surroundings."

By 2020 (or perhaps earlier), I suspect augmented reality may be as unremarkable on mobile devices as (say) always-connected e-mail is in 2009. Or for all I know, it may be yet another flash in the pan. This is why I'm glad I'm not a 'futurologist'.

Augmented Reality: 5 Barriers to a Web That's Everywhere
Augmented Reality is in some ways just another version of the web; a web applied, through novel interfaces, in reference to the physical world, instead of floating documents tied only to each other as the web is today.
IEEE Spectrum: Augmented Reality in a Contact Lens
Conventional contact lenses are polymers formed in specific shapes to correct faulty vision. To turn such a lens into a functional system, we integrate control circuits, communication circuits, and miniature antennas into the lens using custom-built optoelectronic components. Those components will eventually include hundreds of LEDs, which will form images in front of the eye, such as words, charts, and photographs. Much of the hardware is semitransparent so that wearers can navigate their surroundings without crashing into them or becoming disoriented. In all likelihood, a separate, portable device will relay displayable information to the lens’s control circuit, which will operate the optoelectronics in the lens.

“Augmented reality,” where data from the network overlays your view of the real world. Your phone’s screen shows the real world overlaid with additional information such as the location of subway entrances, the price of houses, or Twitter messages that have been posted nearby. And publishers, moviemakers and toymakers have embraced a version of the technology to enhance their products and advertising campaigns.
As you shove your way through the crowd in a baseball stadium, the lenses of your digital glasses display the names, hometowns and favorite hobbies of the strangers surrounding you.

Top 5 Web Trends of 2009: Mobile Web & Augmented Reality
Apple's share of smartphone traffic in the U.S. had surged to 64%. Perhaps more significantly though, Apple's share of worldwide smartphone traffic had increased to 47%. This is important, because internationally other smartphones were utilized much more than in the U.S. before the iPhone arrived.
The Wearable Internet Will Blow Mobile Phones Away
Earlier this year at the TED conference, Pattie Maes from the MIT Media Lab's Fluid Interfaces Group showcased a wearable computing system that allows users to display and interact with the Web on any surface - including the human body. The video shows the system's main developer, Pranav Mistry, taking photographs with his hand, summoning up Amazon review data onto the cover of a physical book, displaying information about a person he's just met on their tee-shirt, and calling someone by inputting a phone number onto the palm of his hand.
10 years off... Look out mobile phones, because in a decade's time wearable systems may be the primary means of accessing the Web "The current system, albeit relatively clunky, could be purchased for as little as $350. Essentially it is made up of a webcam, a battery-powered 3M projector, mirror, phone and colored finger caps. But in 10 years - according to Maes, the period of time when this type of system might be fully developed - it could be one device and as small as a watch. Or indeed maybe even a brain implant."

Augmented Wikipedia Reality Has Arrived on the iPhone
A month ago, we covered Wikitude, an augmented reality app for Google Android. Augmented reality takes virtual data, places it on your phone, and allows you to interact with it using your compass, camera, and GPS. The end result is the ability to see virtual items and information in the real world. Wikitude’s AR app combines Wikipedia (Wikipedia) and geotagged information from its users and places it in your hands. But while it’s been on Android (Android) for some time, it hasn’t been on the iPhone. That’s because has Apple has only recently begun to accept AR on the iPhone, inadvertently starting with Yelp’s easter egg. But now we’ve learned from ReadWriteWeb that Wikitude has made its debut on the iPhone. The free app is now available in the iTunes store

io9 - Two Augmented Reality Technologies That Are About To Change The World - Augmented Reality
Here you can see a demo of design software called ARToolWorks which was posted on Gizmodo earlier this week. ARToolWorks is a mobile phone application that allows you to design 3D objects that pop up out of scenes you view through your mobile's camera. So instead of a map over the city of Amsterdam, you might see giant robots trashing it or psychedelic flowers growing out of a hash bar.
Augmented reality is a technology futurists and scifi authors like Vernor Vinge have been talking about for decades. Now the tech has matured and is entering the market. Two videos of new products show you the near future.
Now our technology can actually do this, using smart phones as a crude mobile interface. In these demo videos below, we're getting a first glimpse of what happens when the internet comes out of the box and into the real world.

Pulse Laser: “Preparing Us For AR”: the value of illustrating of future technologies
'Dead Space has no game HUD; rather, the HUD is projected into the environment of the game as a manifestation of the UI of the hero’s protective suit. It means the environment can be designed as a realistic, functional spaceship, and then all the elements necessary for a game - readouts, inventories, not to mention guidelines as to what doors are locked or unlocked - can be manifested as overlay. It’s a striking way to place all the game’s UI into the world, but it’s also a great interpretation of what futuristic, AR user interfaces might be a bit like.'

Augmented Reality & The Web: Present and Future Scenarios - ReadWriteWeb
There are many potential scenarios for AR. A popular one is doing your grocery shopping and checking information on your mobile phone (or AR glasses!) about price, specials, reviews, comparisons with competing products, etc. With the rise of RFID chips and technology such as that being developed by Microsoft, this type of scenario isn't too far away.
Quelques cas d'usages de la réalité augmentée. "Another interesting consideration is that social software will have a big role to play in future AR apps. For example when walking down the street, you could use your mobile phone to point to a restaurant, and overlaid on a photo of the restaurant would be customer reviews, recommendations, and other relevant user generated data.
Augmented Reality (AR) is when virtual graphics and/or data are overlaid onto real world objects. Many of you have seen this portrayed in movies such as Minority Report and The Matrix. It still seems a bit far fetched in 2009, yet there are apps that are beginning to make it a reality.
