While the past year has marked a major craze for VR technologies like the Oculus Rift, the potential of augmented reality is grabbing hold of a lot of imaginations as well.
IEEE and Epson recently hosted a contest for students to come up with exciting ideas and share them online via YouTube video. $16,000 in scholarship money is up for grabs, and we look forward to seeing who the winners are.
Just one of several, the above video was put together by Mina Tawadrous and Dan Buckstein, graduate students in the game development program at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology (UOIT). Our favorite part is when Mina hurts his eye…while wearing glasses!
Several more submissions can be viewed on YouTube. Which are your favorite submissions and why?
