With its Color Alive line, Crayola was the first company to merge coloring books and apps so kids could bring their on-page creations to life. But Disney Research is taking that idea one step further by letting kids see a coloring book character move in 3D while they’re still coloring it.

It’s all made possible by a new augmented reality app that Disney Research has developed that’s able to track and capture real-time images from a mobile device’s camera, and then map them onto any 3D deformable surface. In the example above it’s a cartoon elephant whose pants are slowly being colored in, but it could just as easily be a castle getting new flags, or a space ship getting some battle damage.

200 euros la paire de lunettes


En France, deux start-up planchent depuis de longues années sur ces lunettes à réalité augmentée (LIRA). À commencer par Laster Technologies et Optinvent. Basée à Rennes, cette dernière a été créée en 2007 par des ingénieurs de Technicolor spécialisés notamment dans les technologies de vidéoprojection.

Juhani Pihkala's insight:

FOV and FPS these two items are massively important for VR and Mixed Reality headsets.

I see Meta2 have just come out with 90deg FOV (much improved from the original ~45deg) but no where near to StarVR 201deg FOV. 

This is a great table to see all the providers and where they stand. Unfortunately it's already quite a bit out of date (May 2015) so would love to find a new table rather than make my own. Any links would be appreciated!
