AR-media™ Plugin for Trimble SketchUp™

AR-media™ Plugin for Trimble SketchUp™
Description With AR-media™ Plugin, Trimble SketchUp™ users are allowed to visualize their 3D models using Augmented Reality directly in the real physical space which surrounds them. In a very precise sense, through AR-media™ Plugin, SketchUp™ 3D models can be visualized out of the digital workspace directly on users' desktop, by connecting a simple webcam and by printing a suitable code. By means of the Exporting feature, users can create and publish augmented reality files autonomously. Files created by this feature can be visualized on any computer with the freely available AR-media™ Player, without the need of having Trimble SketchUp™ and the Plugin installed. Users can now create their own SketchUp™ Augmented Reality models and distribute them to their clients as independent, stand-alone files and let their clients experience such models in Augmented Reality in a click.

How Google Glass will change mobile forever November 26, 2013 Glass is the flagship ‘wearable technology’ product developed by Google. For the layman, Google Glass uses video-generated reality to overlay visual information onto real-world objects – all through a pair of glasses. The notion of using imagery on top of real-world objects using augmented reality has enabled Google Glass to take the media by storm. Today we’re exploring the capabilities of Google Glass and the extent to which it will alter the landscape of mobile technology forever.

Age of Technology: Generational Video Viewing Preferences Vary By Device and Activity Globally, consumers largely favor TV as the device of choice for watching video programming. However, there are a few regional and generational differences in how we watch. In Nielsen’s Global Digital Landscape Survey, respondents in Asia-Pacific, Africa/Middle East and Latin America prefer mobile phones for in-home video viewing more than those in Europe and North America. For example, among viewers who say they watch video programming when they’re home alone, 41% in Africa/Middle East, 40% in Asia-Pacific and 38% in Latin America say they do so on a mobile phone, compared with 24% in Europe and 22% in North America.

CUBE INNOVATORS Augmented reality (AR) is the integration of digital information with live video or the user's environment in real time. Basically, AR takes an existing picture and blends new information into it. The key to augmented reality is the software. Augmented reality programs are written in special 3D augmented reality programs. These programs allow the developer to tie animation or contextual digital information in the computer program to an augmented reality "marker" in the real world. The end user must download a software application (app) or browser plug-in in order to experience augmented reality. Augmented Reality: Past, Present and Future - TNW Industry You may have heard about augmented reality before. If you haven’t, you’ll be hearing a lot about it from now on, with the smartphone and tablet revolution now in full-swing. Augmented reality (AR) is a term used to describe a live view of a physical, real-world environment that is augmented by computer-generated sensory input, such as sound or graphics. A typical AR environment has digital information transposed onto a real-world view. AR is not to be confused with virtual reality (VR), which is an entirely digital experience that mimics real-world situations. There have been countless notable examples lately of augmented reality in action.

The history of augmented reality The term "augmented reality" has been around since 1990 but that doesn’t mean that it was never there before. The moment that man made gadgets that could relate to their environment and supply their users with information based on that, AR was there. It’s just that nobody thought to call it that. So, for those who want to know how it all went down, here is the history of augmented reality from birth to where we are today. Importing Spreadsheets Introduction In this document we will walk you through the process of importing data from a spreadsheet application into Graph Earth. Although we are using Microsoft Office 2007 in our example, this process should work for most spreadsheet applications. In previous examples, we have created Google Earth documents (KML) that display data by State. To illustrate the flexibility of Graph Earth, we will use this opportunity to generate a 3D map of cities, however, you could just as easily graph by country, state, county, city or zip code.
