Jan 26, 2015: DHL successfully tests Augmented Reality application in warehouse The pilot's objective was to gain insights on the technology's benefits and limitations. For three weeks, warehouse staff in Bergen op Zoom was equipped with head mounted displays such as Google Glass and VuzixM100. The displays showed the respective task information during the picking process, including aisle, product location and quantity. Overall, 10 order pickers used the equipment and picked more than 20,000 items, fulfilling 9,000 orders within the given time frame. As a result, staff was able to operate much faster and error free. Currently DHL and Ricoh are jointly evaluating the roll-out of the solution.

Social Network Analysis and Gaming: Survey of the Current State of Art We report on the current state of the art of social network analysis based on the enormous datasets that exist in massive multiplayer online games and multiplayer online arena games. At least since the rise of World Of Warcraft as a massive multiplayer online game, the online gaming world is slowly becoming a center of attention for game developers and players, but there is still little analysis done on the connections between the players of a game.

The biggest problem for this new area of research is the dynamic of connections coupled with the enormous amount of data and the unknown relations between players in their real lives and other games. But exactly these connections are crucial for serious game development.

Augmented Reality Is For Real In The Enterprise Google Glass got the hype, but a system used by Lockheed Martin shows how augmented reality will charge ahead in the enterprise. Google Glass is gone for now, but augmented reality is far from dead.
