The future reality is sad for us as humans

on July 30, 2012 by Mark Comments

This cool mini-movie is by two students from Bezaleal Academy of Arts, Eran May-raz and Daniel Lazo. It’s their vision as to what the future holds for us. It’s beautifully shot and has some excellent thoughts on how we may be interacting with technology in the near future. It’s a little creepy and a little sad watching the dude fumble around… and love the girl’s line “A dating app!!”. Read more…

Esquire uses AR gimmick to generate buzz

on November 20, 2009 by Martina Comments

This week you might have heard already of Esquire’s Augmented Reality issue. The video below explains the action. Basically the print magazine gets interactive: when you point the QR code to your webcam a world of additional multimedia content is unveiled.

Also, the aspect that really amazes me is the great job they’ve done building content with celebrities. This is the real added value of the initiative and possible the hardest thing to replicate

on August 3, 2009 by Martina Comments

Another post about augmented reality: the benchmark in terms of quality of execution and concept still remains AKQA’s Priority Email, but this Wrigley’s website is worth having a look, as it introduces additional elements of interactivity.

Basically the 5 Mixer allows you to scratch like a DJ 5 QR codes symbols in front of your webcam in order to create your club music mix. As explained by Augmented Times, there are three markers representing gum flavors, each linked to a certain track, and one master marker to rule them all. The markers’ distance from the master marker and their relative angles determine the volume and effects for each track.
