Ray-Ban Uses Augmented Reality For Their Virtual Mirror - The Future of Ads. Online shopping is quickly becoming the way that many of us look for and evaluate various products*, but there has always been a disconnect between trying something out in the store and viewing it online.

Ray-Ban Uses Augmented Reality For Their Virtual Mirror - The Future of Ads

In my Augmented Reality Post, I suggested that watches could be one of the first products to benefit from a virtual showroom to help bridge the gap between viewing and actually trying out a product, but I’ve since found out that Ray-Ban is already using augmented reality to demo their products with the Ray-Ban Virtual Mirror! The technology behind the Virtual Mirror, called FIT3D Live, is made by a company called FittingBox, and according to them, they want to be “the driving force behind this digital revolution which will dramatically change the optical industry”.

They’ve also found a way to track your face without the need for an augmented reality tracking marker, so existing reference points (eyes, nose, ears) are apparently enough to place and move the sunglasses in real time. ModiFace Launches Personalized E-Commerce Platform For Beauty Brands and Retailers. Feb. 3, 2015 ModiFace Launches Personalized E-Commerce Platform For Beauty Brands and Retailers New personalized e-commerce platform dramatically increases social engagement and conversions with just a few lines of HTML code.

ModiFace Launches Personalized E-Commerce Platform For Beauty Brands and Retailers

We are delighted to announce the launch of an e-commerce platform that personalizes online and mobile beauty shopping. The ModiFace E-Commerce platform allows for an unlimited number of products and product combinations to be simulated on both model photos and user-uploaded photos. For example, a user browsing a brand's mobile app for the latest lipstick shades can quickly visualize the lipstick on a model image, and by taking a selfie can instantly see the same lipstick realistically rendered on her own image.

We spent nearly two years evaluating the impact of product simulations on e-commerce. Prettify yourself in Panasonic's augmented reality mirror. Katie Collins Staff Writer, The majority of the IFA tech show in Berlin is focussed on the here and now and what devices and products you'll be spending your money on today.

Prettify yourself in Panasonic's augmented reality mirror

Panasonic, however, is asking visitors to cast their mind into the future and has given them a vision of how their homes may end up looking. The "home of the future" installations are on some level a slightly tired concept, with manufacturers often using them as an opportunity to get a bit sci-fi in the name of looking progressive. But that doesn't mean they're not fun to walk around -- so I did, and this time it was Panasonic's turn. That vision Panasonic has for the future home starts in the kitchen, where all cooking will be controlled from a tablet and we will have cool trays like mini fridges for keeping left-out food fresh. Most impressive though is the hob that will (if Panasonic's correct) stir your sauces, soups and stews for you to stop them sticking to the pan.

There's a massive augmented reality mobile game, Ingress, going on all around you - Philly

You could walk the Art Museum area and not even realize it. Developed by a division of Google, the massively multiplayer, GPS-enabled mobile game is a competition between two ever-changing teams, the Enlightened and the Resistance. Here’s the basic setup: the Enlightened believe that exotic matter, or XM, being collected will benefit the human race, while the Resistance think that XM can be used to control people. The purpose of the game is to support either the Enlightened or the Resistance by collecting XM to perform tasks and capture portals. Portals are created by the players and are physical objects outside of the game. A “Portal Wreckers” player using the Ingress app in Philadelphia. Augmented reality conference returns to Dublin.

How augmented reality will add value to our lives

“It’s about enhancing your vision by adding computer-generated objects,” he says. “You see the real world on your phone or a wearable device, but there might be a virtual information marker overlaid telling you about a building or area.” Dr Matthews has worked with a number of PA Consulting’s clients on projects involving augmented reality, and believes there are several areas the technology could be employed for the benefit of consumers and in industry. Preview Art On The Wall With Curioos Augmented Reality App.

Unless you’re really committed to decorating your home with museum posters, acquiring and hanging original art can be a risky and expensive undertaking.

Preview Art On The Wall With Curioos Augmented Reality App

It’s hard to know exactly how a print or painting will look once it’s hanging on your wall, and sometimes you find out you don’t like something only after you’ve made a big mistake. Several companies, such as and Saatchi Art are seeking to alleviate such uncertainty with technologies like augmented reality — letting you choose an art work and see what it looks like on your wall. The newest entrant into this arena is Curioos, a marketplace where curated artists from 80 countries sell their original work to a worldwide audience with art-challenged walls. The marketplace, originally derived from a Tumblr, currently stocks some 5,000 original works. You can order art in a variety of sizes and on different media such as fine art prints, canvas, aluminum, and acrylic glass prints.

How are Brands using augmented reality to engage users and drive conversion? (London) - Masterclassing

This does, indeed, seem a pretty important question with which to launch a partnership! That said, I often tend to flip the question back on itself; rather than success, it’s more crucial to decide a campaign’s unique overall aim. Is it to engage consumers or to drive sales conversion? After all, while engagement and conversion can be synonymous, other times their meanings can be quite disparate. Often, one has to come first. Four ways augmented reality will be coming to your workplace soon. Pulling the plug on Google Glass had to be a disappointment to many people, especially those who put their heart into the Glass Explorer advocacy program.

This Is Your Brain On Meta AR. Lockheed Is Using These Augmented Reality Glasses to Build Fighter Jets. A $100 million plane pulls up in front of you, ready for the final stage of assembly. When you're done, the jet will leave the factory floor for a life of cruising at more than 1,000 mph and dodge enemy missiles. So you'd better build it right.

Until recently, Lockheed Martin needed a team of technicians with years of training to wrench on its sophisticated machines. But now, in the advanced factory where the company is building the F-35, engineers are using augmented reality glasses and educational software that provide real-time visuals during the plane's assembly, ensuring that every part on the warplane is in the right place. Lockheed is collaborating with NGRAIN on a trial in which employees wear $700 Epson Moverio BT-200 glasses, transparent glasses with a front-facing camera that uses motion and depth sensors to overlay images onto the technician's working environment. Their software allows engineers to work 30 percent faster, and with accuracy up to 96 percent.

Standard job interview questions, used by many recruiters and managers, seem to be really ill fitted to predict a candidate’s future performance.

According to professor Allen Huffcutt from Bradley University, who’s been studying job interviews for the better part of the past 20 years, identified a number of problems with the recruitment process in general and the interview process in particular. In several blogs about the gamification score we talked already in length about how unrelated to facts today’s evaluation processes for employees are. But the problem starts way early, during recruiting. The future of next-generation user interfaces.
