Augmented Reality: Enabling Learning Through Rich Context

Augmented Reality: Enabling Learning Through Rich Context | Future Trends and Advances In Education and Technology | Scoop.it
Stephenson's Metaverse is a virtual reality space, a completely immersive computer-generated experience whose users have minimal ability to interact with the real world. In contrast to this fictional vision is today's burgeoning field of augmented reality (AR), a technology that superimposes visual information or other data in front of one's view of the real world.

New Gloves Could Let You Feel In Virtual Reality

New Gloves Could Let You Feel In Virtual Reality | Future Trends and Advances In Education and Technology | Scoop.it
Gaming might be about to become a lot more hands on. With most major gaming companies focusing on the sights and sounds of virtual reality (VR), a group of mechanical engineering students at Rice University have instead turned their attention to touch. They’ve managed to produce a prototype VR glove that makes it seem like you’re actually feeling objects in the game.

Andrew Sparks's curator insight, May 19, 7:31 PM

developed at Rice University, these gloves let you touch while in virtual reality.  Apparently is is an adjustment in pressure that lets the person feel as though they are interacting with an object in virtual reality.  This could be great for history classes because when it comes to history, the possiblities in VR is essentially limitless.

How Corning Is Ushering in the 'Glass Age' - PC Mag

How Corning Is Ushering in the 'Glass Age' - PC Mag | Future Trends and Advances In Education and Technology | Scoop.it
Do you remember that scene in The Graduate when Dustin Hoffman is talking to a friend's father, a salesman. "I just want to say one word to you. Just one word," he tells Hoffman. "Plastics." That quote came back to me last week when I attended a Corning-sponsored symposium at the Computer History Museum in Silicon Valley about glass. A clip they showed (below) made me think that if The Graduate was made today, that salesman might have urged Hoffman to get into glass instead of plastics. This short video looks back in history and details the various ages when materials and technology became important to mankind's progress. From the Stone Age to the Space Age, the clip shows how these various times in history defined the role technology has played in creating the world we have today. The video ends by suggesting that we are now in the Glass Age, given the role that glass plays in so many buildings, automobiles, computers, smartphones, and thousands of other applications around the wor....

Yesterday, at Google's IO conference, Google showed off the future of virtual reality -- and it isn't all made up of cardboard. This is surprising, because Google's previous ventures into the space have been, well, a little half hearted. Don't get me wrong: Google Cardboard, a minimalist VR shell for smartphones is undeniably neat -- but its limitations…
