Remember those weird things called audio cassette tapes? Sorry to make you feel so old, but the speed of technology keeps impressing us. We went from tapes, to cd's, to digital, and now heading towards a cloud storage based system.

Google Launches Augmented Reality App ARCore For Android | #AR #RA 

Google Launches Augmented Reality App ARCore For Android | #AR #RA  | Hitchhiker | Scoop.it
Google has launched its own augmented reality kit for developers, called ARCore, a lighter version of the company’s Tango platform that does not require any specialized hardware to run.

ARCore is a light software development kit, similar to Apple’s ARkit, which is able to track motion, understand flat surfaces, and estimate where the light will be for accurate shadows.

The SDK is currently available on Android 7.0 Nougat and its successor Android Oreo. It will work on the Google Pixel and the Samsung Galaxy S8 and S8 Plus. Google is aiming for 100 million supported devices by the end of the year, according to The Verge.

Google has been working on Project Tango for three years now, launching specialized smartphones with Lenovo and Asus. The devices had depth perception functionality, because of the dual-cameras, creating the “six degrees of freedom” found on high-end virtual reality (VR) headsets.

Alex Kane:  '“Today’s most innovative artists are always looking for new ways to push boundaries, with their music and their means of connecting with fans,” says [Lucas] Wilson. “[...] We’re used to going to concerts, but very few of us have actually been on stage. We’ve grown accustomed to hearing from our favorite artists on social media, but rarely do those words come directly from their mouths. VR is changing all that. It’s the most personal way of connecting with your fans.”'

“You don’t tell the same things in a TV version that you do in a web doc or game doc,” he says. “On the web, what is magical to me is that people feel they are part of the movie, part of the story – that they’re inside...."
