7 modi in cui la realtà aumentata potrà migliorare la nostra vita e la user experience

7 modi in cui la realtà aumentata potrà migliorare la nostra vita e la user experience
You might think augmented reality is the way of the future, but really, it has its roots in the 20th century. Morton Heilig, the "Father of Virtual Reality," patented the Sensorama Stimulator, which he called an "experience theater," on Aug. 28, 1962. Over time, the idea of using technology to create a layer over the real world has been honed and refined and put in our palms, thanks to the proliferation of smartphones. Confused about what augmented reality is? In short, it's a way to use technology to redefine space, and it places a virtual layer over the world with geographic specificity ensuring a good fit. Check out the video below — in real life, the woman is holding what appears to be a simple box of LEGOs. While mainstream examples of AR have been, to date, on the fluffy side (like this and this), the technology has promise as an urban utility. "It's not a futuristic, fringy thing "It's not a futuristic, fringy thing," says Goldrun founder Vivian Rosenthal. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7.

La AR in classe Editor's Note: Drew Minock, who co-wrote this piece, is an elementary teacher, co-founder of the popular education blog Two Guys and Some IPads, and is one of the voices on "The Two Guys Show" podcast. Imagine living in the magical world of Harry Potter, where the school hallways are lined with paintings that are alive and interactive. Now imagine creating an atmosphere like that for your students. Augmented Reality (AR) allows educators and students to do just that: unlock or create layers of digital information on top of the physical world that can be viewed through an Android or iOS device. Most people who interact with AR for the first time have a mind-blowing experience but fail to consider classroom applications.

Educational Technology and Mobile Learning: 8 Excellent Augmented Reality Apps for iPad In this post Educational Technology and Mobile Learning is providing you with a list of some awesome augmented reality apps for your iPad but before that let us first see what the concept of augmented reality is all about . Augmented reality is a relatively new digital phenomenon that is brought about by the recent development in the field of technology and particularly mobile technology. In augmented reality the line between the virtual world and the real one is blurred. Engineers use some sophisticated technologies to pull out graphics from television screen and computer display and integrate them into real world environments. Augmented reality spices up the natural world with computer enhanced sounds, graphics, and feedback.If we are to put augmented reality in a continuum that has in one end computer generated environments and in the other end real world environments then augmented reality would be closer to the latter.

50 Must-Download Apps For Lifelong Learners Long after degrees have been conferred and careers have been launched, many folks just can’t seem to quit school. For them, life provides an overstuffed cornucopia of educational opportunities that don’t necessarily require hefty loans and navigating different professorial strategies.

Hundreds, if not thousands, of apps are out there just twitching for users to fire them up and absorb a mental nugget or two. History and Geography Language, Reading, and Writing

Come spiegare la AR agli studenti June 18, 2014 The integration of Augmented Reality technology into learning is growing by leaps and bounds. The potential of this technology in education is uncontestedly huge and several classes now are using it to teach key literacy and mathematical concepts to students. This series of videos is an example of how students in primary are using augmented reality in their learning. Augmented reality should not be confused with virtual reality, for the boundaries of each concept are clearly demarcated. While virtual reality denotes a reality that exists only in the virtual world (online), augmented reality, on the other hand, keeps the real world but only adds a digital layer to it. or amplifies it.

Doctors with iPads could transform hospital care - tech - 12 June 2014 Modern medicine creates mountains of data – a suite of iPad apps called Medopad aims to integrate it all and place it in the palm of a doctor's hand HOSPITALS are packed full of valuable information about patients but doctors often struggle to use it effectively. A London-based start-up wants to change all that with a new suite of iPad apps called Medopad. Augmented Reality in Education String Augmented reality is a 3D learning environment which connects real and virtual world. It provides interactive tools for learning, and fosters informal learning. Besides, augmented reality increases motivation and engages learners. Above all, augmented reality is good for kinesthetic learners; it enables learners participate interactively with computer generated simulations. My Top 3 Augmented Reality Apps:

6 Higher Education Institutions Leading the way with Mobile Learning Apps As the high-tech world evolves from dial-up access to lightning-fast smartphones, students benefit from a more mobile classroom. But as anyone with a smartphone or tablet already knows, no two apps are alike. Some universities offer fully functional online classrooms in their mobile apps, while others only offer a directory and map. A mobile-friendly classroom means more access for students who are used to already getting things done on the go with their handheld devices (If you’re someone who enjoys creating apps, you may want to learn how to become a mobile app developer).

This TARDIS replica really is bigger on the inside I read the word MAYA and my pulse quickened, my breaths got shallower, and my grip on my coffee mug tightened. I hate that program, even five years after I last used it. I know. I've touched it three times. Other than hair rendering, really, there's no reason TO touch it. The first 3d application I used when I was still in school was AutoCAD way back in the late 80's (dos based).

10 esempi di AR nel retail From shoppable windows to products that come alive in your hand; the worlds of augmented reality and retail have collided spectacularly in recent years.

The tech we were wearing before wearable tech At first glance, the building blocks of our wardrobes have barely changed in the last hundred years – or have they? The still-pervasive use of synthetic fabrics, cotton and animal skin may suggest we’re cut from the same cloth, but technology is being ingrained in the DNA of our clothing like never before. Technical fabrics – pervasive on the runway – provide the starting point for clothes that will eventually compute.

Augmented Reality and Applications for Education – Part 2 Guest post by James Roberts. Though many would say that augmented reality is destined to play a role in the future of education, others would point out that it’s already here.
