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 19:15

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.:)

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 00:39

Yeah, that'd be really cool...

Bot13 2008-09-26 10:19

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

Lupin 2008-09-26 20:05

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 21:18

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

xesf 2008-09-27 11:58

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

RobG 2008-09-28 17:33

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