"Grid is an Augmented Reality environment which provides a spatial configuration for real-time gaming at an architectural scale...To propose a new way of experiencing and circulating through the city, an architectural playground that allows for increased social engagement with the building and the objects within. These include gaming hot spots which utilize mixed reality to transform the city with interactive playgrounds."
"Stiktu is a whole new way of using augmented reality to be creative and express yourself on top of objects in the real world. It’s the app to leave your mark, share your favorite things, rate items you like and speak your mind."
Lego (or LEGO if you're adamant about trademarks) has just dipped another toe into electronic gaming with their clever "Life Of George" iOS title. The game uses 144 pieces and a piece of cardboard covered in a dotted pattern.
"Greg Tran, a recent graduate of Harvard Design School, presented Mediating Mediums: The Digital 3D, an exploration of what the future of AR could look like and its potential affect on our experience with architecture."
Drug design is a scientific problem so important that researchers are willing to throw just about any kind of creative problem-solving approach at it, including tech-buzzwords like gamification and augmented reality. The latter approach comes from Arthur Olson's Molecular Graphics Laboratory at the Scripps Research Institute: He uses 3-D printers to spit out physical models of drugs and enzymes, and attaches augmented-reality tags to them so that computer vision can help researchers find the optimal fit.
