Make walking directions easier. The user points their phone’s cameras at their surroundings and machine learning will identify the landmarks based on Street View imagery to pinpoint their location. It can then more accurately identify position and orientation, giving directions over the real world.
A clinician creates an image of a patient’s anatomy and then overlays it on the patient. By using a set of special glasses, the clinician can then study the image in real-time and get accurate information before beginning the incision process.
A mobile app projects 3d signs of particular locations of interest - restaurants, bike rental spots, subway entrances, etc. onto the user's screen. The app also measures how far the user is from the particular sight. By downloading packs for different types of locations, the user can expand the amount of information the app relays to them.
Playing pool is all about angles and trajectories. Getting them right is a challenge, especially when you are learning. This AR-enhanced pool table makes that easy for you! The concept involves a projector and a real time camera that create a real-time projection of the path of ball that the player is aiming to strike. This enables the player to learn better or just enjoy an evening of a successful game of pool!
Interact with your home without screens, instead with a context-aware projection lamp that works with different surfaces. The lamp enables you to interact more smoothly whilst conducting productive tasks as well as assisting you if there is the need. The application aims to provide you with more interactive and flexible workspace to higher focus and immersion.
Twelve large blocks of ice cast off from the Greenland ice sheet are harvested from a fjord outside Nuuk and presented in a clock formation in a prominent public place. The work raises awareness of climate change by providing a direct and tangible experience of the reality of melting arctic ice. Ice Watch has been installed in two locations so far.
Projection mapping is used to enhance existing manuals with indexical reference (pointing out machine parts, for instance). Support technician is available for remote consultation using voice communication, remote pointing and optional video feed from site.
Context Visually impaired people navigating unfamiliar environments. Design concept Major objects and walls in the environment are sonified to facilitate navigation and manipulation. Objects announce themselves in voice as the user scans a scene; walls make sounds as they are approached. Wayfinding is provided by repeating “follow me” in the […]
A camera monitors a section of a greenhouse and feeds the images to a system capable of determining if the plants are healthy or not. Currently there are for example sensors to automatically tell if the plants are too dry but this takes in the whole plants' appearance, including diseased leaves etc. If a section is deemed to have unhealthy plants, the light changes in that area to make the caretakers aware of the problem without having to go look at a terminal or getting intrusive alerts.
Context switching is very costly from a cognitive point of view, however especially in open office settings, it is hard to know when someone is in the middle of something or if it's OK to ask them questions. Here is an indicator light, showing if someone can be disturbed or not. The light can show different colours indicating "busyness level". It can either be controlled manually or linked to applications on your computer.
When you approach your fridge it becomes transparent, letting you peek inside without opening the door. Additional information about the products is displayed making you aware of what has been automatically ordered, expiration dates, or food that has been “reserved” for Sunday dinner.
As a simulation of events following a major accident is unfolded by an instructor, the participants in training manipulate the physical model of a hospital ward with representations of patients and of medical care resources.
Overlaying a suitably abstracted rendering of people's traces gives a sense of where the action is. Data from your friends yields a socially grounded heat map, whereas a broad data collection provides more of a general overview.
