Apple Impresses With Augmented Reality


This was showcased during the iPhone 8 reveal. Looks like ARKit is going to deliver some amazing augmented reality opportunities!

"The Machines" by Directive Games is a tabletop game where opponents fight over a map in real time and on a household tabletop. While details are scant, the tracking appears to be handled via a hybrid of the iPhone 8's camera and a multitude of sensors.

Whatever they are doing, it appears to work! Very impressive.

Much more to be revealed for Immersed 2017!  Just some of the top organizations speaking at Immersed include Immervision, The Khronos Group, Inmedia Studio, Chosen Realities, IBM, Jon Peddie Research, and more!

Oh yeah...Innerspace (broadcast on Space Channel and rebroadcast on MTV Canada) will also be speaking and covering the show as is Tom's Hardware and others.

Microsoft Mixed Reality Update

Mixed Reality
So it looks like Microsoft and their partners (Dell, Acer, HP, Lenovo, and ASUS) are building up to full swing.  This collection of mixed reality devices are already on track to support the SteamVR API for probable out of the box compatibility with existing VR titles, Microsoft has been showing off their new virtual reality hand controllers, and while all the products are tethered, they all feature inside-out tracking which means they get all the positional benefits without external cameras or infrared laser emitters.  Finally, we will have to see if indeed it's apples to apples, but their pricing has proven to be very competitive with many devices expected to run for less than $400 USD.

Your thoughts?
