In Los Angeles, a startup called Daqri has designed a different kind of hard hat: an Android-powered one that’s capable of augmented reality. As such, it really looks more like a bike helmet than a hard hat, equipped with sensors, cameras and a transparent visor that functions as a head-up display. Continue reading “Android-powered smart hard hat comes with augmented reality features”
The car of the future, we’re told, is cleaner, greener, and smarter than anything we’ve ever seen before. Part of that future, of course, is the fully-autonomous world of self-driving cars, powered by complex algorithms, advanced sensors, and state of the art microprocessors. Continue reading “Forget Automated Driving, Augmented Reality Driving is the Next Big Thing”
The last few years have shown some amazing strides in augmented reality (AR), MEMS, mobile, Sensor Fusion, and the Internet of Things (IoT). But what is hype and what is real value? Continue reading “What does the IoT market have to do with Augmented Reality and Sensor Fusion?”
