CastAR leaps closer to being ready for developers. We take another look at GDC 2014.

We first laid our eyes onto CastAR at CES 2014, and at GDC 2014 last week we got to see the latest improvements in this augmented reality system. The rapid evolution of the hardware is apparent since the model we tried on in January. Completely upgraded are the projectors, which are now both brighter and offer a wider field of view at 720p resolution per eye. The control box hardware was also miniaturized, making the entire unit more self-contained.
