Shitz, that Japanese dude was creepy. It looked like he was gonna stab someone. The concept itself is really cool, and the thing with the store was like you once predicted.

I really like that whole AR thing for games and art. But really who would want to walk around getting their brains filled with crap all day? (I never take my phone with me either btw) I mean its fun as experiment but wtf?:)

ChaosFish 2008-09-22 20:15

I guess if your life is constantly exciting and full of adventure and you're never bored, then you can settle for what's real. But even then you can't say this isn't cool.

Its more practical then sitting down and filling your brains with crap, at least this way you get some excerise :p

lol... Bit like Plato's cave but then when one leaves the cave they actually don't. Actually it does worry me lol, but thats not unusual.:)

Darkflame 2008-09-22 22:50

Well, in all realism, I think it will be exactly like the internet is now.
99% pointless rubbish that either does nothing but vagualy entertains us, or wastes are time completely.
And 1% truely usefull tools which revolutionise the way we live.

I believe just like the internet, its the 1% of content that actualy benifits humanity that outweighs all the other crap.

The problem is we are infovours, we love information. We are addicted to it. Dosnt mater its value.
So its both a blessing and a curse. The same thing that makes us invent new medcines, food sources, gives us heat and light and will, and ensures we live comfortable also results in us checking our emails every two seconds, or clicking on stumble apon, or spending WAY too long on social networking sites :p

...or making posts like these ;)

I made a software for the French space agency (CNES) at work, and as it's somehow Hi-tech or at least related to Hi-tech stuff, I thought it would be the right thread to show it to you guys:

Those sorts of interfaces are getting a dime-a-dozen, but I must say that one looks particularly slick.
The 3D-offseting and slight tilting when panning around really improves it.
The earth looks nice too.

What I'd really like is the inverse, however, a touch-operated dome which projects a interactive copy of Celestia around you :D

Lupin 2008-09-26 01:39

Yeah, that'd be really cool...

Bot13 2008-09-26 11:19

Link this looks extremely cool.
How long did you work on this?

Lupin 2008-09-26 21:05

Thanks :) Well, it took me 4 months. I had to learn about quite a few technologies I didn't know to do it (it's my first professional software). I also made an administrative tool to easily create content.

Odysseus 2008-09-26 22:18

Cool, impressive. I struggle even just modding simple scrips.:P

xesf 2008-09-27 12:58

Excellent work. This makes be want to see LBAO right now :P

RobG 2008-09-28 18:33

Great job Link! That's fantastic. Which I got to do something that exciting in my internship.

This is kinda watchable. Some nice ideas.

Jasiek 2008-10-06 20:41

No spots on the sun... 205 days so far...

Gravitational Lensing

ChaosFish 2008-10-06 21:19

Eternal mindshine of the spotless sun...

Darkflame 2008-10-06 21:37

*groan*

This is cool;
http://nl.youtube.com/watch?v=hSf2-jm0SsQ

Maybe we will one day be able to touch virtual objects too.

Jasiek 2008-10-07 04:17

Wait, they can generate a "pressure field" and all you're thinking is some run of the mill stuff like vr?? Damn it! This thing, given enough power might have dozens of applications! From car bumpers and "air bags" to "hover" craft... even shields protecting stuff from projectiles...

ChaosFish 2008-10-07 05:13

HOVERCRAFTS!!

I've been waiting for so long.

Darkflame 2008-10-07 18:10

I dont think its that powerfull.
It can make you feel presure, but it wouldnt stop anything like a solid object would.

Jasiek 2008-10-07 20:56

YET! ;) The sheer fact of generating a single region in space with more pressure is already astounding.

Darkflame 2008-10-07 21:05

Indeed.
I was confident I would one day live in a part-virtual world. But I didnt dare to dream Id be able to touch it too ;)

Dino-Fly 2008-10-07 21:10

This + AR technology could hold the future.

Darkflame 2008-10-17 02:10

This isnt so much hi-tech as just a really nice idea;

Maybe this will be DHARMA someday:
http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/20360859/

Darkflame 2008-10-17 02:35

Yes, but DHARMA has a supply of exotic mater already, they dont need other methods. :p

Personaly, I still think time-travel theorys are just overcomplicating things.
Gravity works in 4 dimensions, therefor if you go near an area something dense *used* to be, you will be pulled back in time slightly. (or rather, you would decelerate in time compared to everything else...so things would look like they slowed down to you).

I think something of suffient density...like a black hole, should be able to just pull you back in time.
The problem is, the blackhole would have to move, because being where the blackhole *is* isnt any good, you gota be where it used to be.
[\darkflames theory]

Another vision of our AR future;

http://www.baekdal.com/future/user_e...ics-augmented/

Really nice concept video, even if I could nit-pick some stuff.

oh, and real pilots were flying against virtual ones;
http://www.techradar.com/news/gaming...ponents-476319

Real pilots won.
Still, cool image;
http://mos.techradar.com//images/3%2...lr2-728-75.jpg
No idea what the connection is to the artical though :p

Zerath^ 2008-10-18 14:27

To be honest that looks very lame :p but who knows.

Jasiek 2008-10-18 19:58

Yeah I second that, it looks extremely stupid. I can't stand people with blue-tooth ear pieces, let alone walking with a "visor"...

ChaosFish 2008-10-18 22:15

Looks like some dystopian alternate reality from Doctor Who.

Odysseus 2008-10-23 18:59

Here Comes the Sun

:zombie:

Docu on innovation of efficiency and market around solar energy harvesting.:tup:

Augmented Reality software ready for the launch of the first Google Andriod enabled phones.
Basicaly, you point at a landmark, and it brings up information on it.

ChaosFish 2008-10-24 19:54

Awesome, Google really scored a big one!

Darkflame 2008-10-26 23:03

BBC has got a little AR advert for their Merlin series here;

http://www.bbc.co.uk/merlin/#/games/magiceye/

Basicaly, you can download it, print out a marker, and it shows videos alligned to where the market is.
Nicely, the program looks easy to edit for your own videos (there just wmv files in the tricks directory), allthough I havnt tried yet.

the_angry_monkey 2008-10-28 15:28

The google thing is pretty neat - will definitely be considering the migration from Win Mobile to Android and the G1 next contract

Darkflame 2008-11-07 16:13

Some more neat G1 thingys. (allthough not nesscery exxclusive)

Music recognition software;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1IYOYxxJkQ

Barcode scanning/product comparison:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eVglLneBbtQ

both pretty neat.

oh, and another demo of the tilting google street view thing;

Yeah, the hexagon always amazes me.

Pretty sure thats heavily false-coloured image, but still cool.
