A Short Film on Augmented Reality and Google’s Project Glass

Posted by | July 29, 2012

Augmented reality is a technology where virtual objects, like labels and pictures, are layered over the real world so a person can interact with the real and the virtual at once. Google’s Project Glass is a wearable system that allows a person to access augmented reality without bulky equipment or goggles. This short film shows how augmented reality might work in the real world, and it shows how the tech might work in silly Twilight Zone fiction. Regardless of the silliness, check out this video for a good look into the world of augmented reality, a world which Google’s Project Glass might bring to us. Geek.com has the story.

    Augmented reality will do more than just throw labels and info around. You know how video games can reskin models to make whole new characters and enemies? Let’s do that in real life, maybe turning a house into a virtual castle, or reskinning the random people on the street into aliens.

    If AR devices talk to each other, they know where the virtual creations involved are in space, and they could give a force-feedback sense of touch when your virtual alien antennae bump against the virtual gate of that virtual castle-house. Or on someone’s virtual wings.
