Virtual Cable could become one of the best implementations of augmented reality. It’s a car navigation system that projects a true 3D line on your windscreen. Very smart!

Surface

May 30th, 2007

Microsoft SurfaceAfter seeing many research projects about touchscreen interfaces (Sony CSL, HyperPalette, SmartSkin, DataTiles, HoloWall, Pick-and-Drop, and the demo’s by Jeff Han, the technology is finally coming available to the broad audience … the Apple iPhone. So what are they doing in Redmond? Well, they just launched ‘Microsoft Surface’. Don’t get your hopes up, it will cost between $5,000 and $10,000, so the people in the demo movies must be very rich.

WiiFlash

February 2nd, 2007

Almost 2 months ago I posted an article about the first Wiimote hacks (the wireless nintendo Wii controller), I predicted that people would try to use it together with flash. Joa Ebert and his friends managed to get it working: WiiFlash. Hell yeah, check out their demo with Papervision3D (an open source flash 3D engine), the last part is the most impressive part.
Bring on the source code!

Sketch Furniture

October 29th, 2006

The four FRONT members have developed a method to materialise free hand sketches. They make it possible by using a unique method where two advanced techniques are combined.
Pen strokes made in the air are recorded with Motion Capture and become 3D digital files; these are then materialised through Rapid Prototyping into real pieces of furniture.
