Life on MARS: Location-Independent Augmented Reality GPS-based Augmented Reality is great for a mobile game like Ingress, but it won't help you fix your car. New software from PAR Works has a visual take on Augmented Reality, bringing the benefits of the concept to an entirely new class of applications. It might even work its way into gaming, too. Current implementations of AR usually tie into your phone or tablet's location features (GPS, compass, etc.) to determine exactly what to show you. In some cases, like an interactive subway map, this is exactly what you need, but there are times when you want something more precise – or times when location doesn't matter at all. Companies like Aurasma have brought some really interesting AR applications to 2D picture recognition, and they have the potential to transform marketing.

Top 6 Underground Search Engines You Never Knew About Advertisement I love Google, Bing and Yahoo just as much as the next Internet user, but sometimes you really want to dig down into a particular subject. In order to do that, you really need access to those underground search engines that may not be quite as well known, but they dig much more deeply into specialized areas of the Internet than the general search engines are capable of. In many cases, these search engines are tapped into what is currently termed the “invisible web,” which is the information available on the Internet that standard search engines don’t have access to, because they are buried behind query forms or directory requests. The following 6 underground search engines that I chose are not porn sites, illegal piracy sites or anything else that could get you in trouble with the law, or with your significant other. Instead, I term the following as “underground search engines” for two reasons.

What is Augmented Reality (AR) As you wait anxiously in the motionless horde of cars tangled in rush hour traffic, you gather surrounding statistics through your digital LED contact lenses. Tom’s Pizzeria is five blocks ahead and was ranked four out of five stars by customer reviews. As for the woman in the beige Honda beside you, she has a Jack Russell Terrier named Charlie, is originally from Texas, and her favorite book is Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights.

Rise of Augmented Reality: Current and Future Application Areas The massive technological advancements around the world have created significant challenging competition among companies where each of the companies tries to attract the customers using different techniques. One of the recent tech- niques is Augmented Reality (AR). The AR is a new technology which is capable of presenting possibilities that are difficult for other technologies to offer and meet.

5 ways to make a bulletproof will In an ideal world, your final wishes would remain just that: final. But in reality, dissatisfied heirs might look for any opportunity to grab what they feel they deserve. Now more than ever, it’s essential to make a will that’s as bulletproof as possible. “People are living longer, and their lives are getting messier,” says Stephen Hartnett, associate director of education for the American Academy of Estate Planning Attorneys. There’s more time for a second marriage, more time for valuables to pile up, more time for the family tree to sprout some unfamiliar branches — all of which can cloud who gets what after you’re gone. Augmenting Our World - How Augmented Reality Works The basic idea of augmented reality is to superimpose graphics, audio and other sensory enhancements over a real-world environment in real time. Sounds pretty simple. Besides, haven't television networks been doing that with graphics for decades? However, augmented reality is more advanced than any technology you've seen in television broadcasts, although some new TV effects come close, such as RACEf/x and the super-imposed first down line on televised U.S. football games, both created by Sportvision. But these systems display graphics for only one point of view. Next-generation augmented-reality systems will display graphics for each viewer's perspective.

Augmented Reality: A new way of augmented learning Augmented learning is defined as an on-demand learning technique where the learning environment adapts to the needs and inputs from learners [1]. Broadly speaking, "environment" here does not have to be constrained into the physical learning environment such as classroom, but could refer to such learning environment as digital learning environment, through which learners can stimulate discovery and gain greater understanding. The technologies conventionally used for augmented learning incorporate touchscreens, voice recognition, and interaction, through which the learning contents can be geared toward learner's needs by displaying plain texts, images, audio and video output. For example, in mobile reality system, the annotation may appear on the learner's individual "heads-up display" or through headphones for audio instruction [2].

7 Ways To Benefit From Augmented Reality Devices The lines between the digital and physical customer experience today are largely artificial. Customers shop in retail stores with their devices at the ready. They expect online-like personalization and recommendations in the aisles. They’re looking for instant gratification and better sensory experiences from digital channels. How To Use Augmented Reality In Education When you were a kid, did you watch RoboCop and totally love the heads-up display? What about the fascinating visuals in Minority Report or Iron Man? They’re basically a form of augmented reality (AR for short). Check Out These Non-Marijuana Plants That Contain Cannabinoids Electric daisy- Acmella oleracea Also known as the toothache plant, the Amazon native can be made into a strong painkilling gel. Formal trials of this plant-based gel conducted by Cambridge University found that the plant was successful in blocking pain receptors at nerve endings. Cannabinoid-like compounds known as N-Isobutylamides act on the CB2 receptor, making this odd-looking flower a powerful painkiller and inflammation fighter. So powerful, in fact, that it’s currently being considered as a new drug-of-choice for dentists working with painful ailments like impacted wisdom teeth. Helichrysum umbraculigerum
