The best augmented reality apps THAT AREN'T Pokemon GO | #AR #RA  | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Pokemon GO isn't the only app that seamlessly blends virtual objects into the real world.

 

In a very short time, Pokemon GO has pushed augmented reality (AR) into the mainstream. Its ability to overlay digital animations onto the real world using your phone's camera and screen is unlike any other popular game before it. But Pokemon GO isn't the only app that seamlessly blends virtual objects into the real world. Here are the best AR apps not linked with Nintendo.

This is unreal - having the ability to scan to millimeter precision is incredibly powerful. It's like having a precise Kinect attached to your iPad. Watch the video to see a bunch of really useful use cases. When it comes to 3D scanning and 3D Augmented Reality this is a major game changer.
I'm going to try to order one today - if you are curious about working with this platform - let me know.

Really made my day! I wonder if with the use of haptix stereo camera it would be possible to improve the results even further and get all the material information.

Infographic: How Much Money Will Solar Panels Save? | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

Even as more affordable photovoltaics and government incentives for adopting renewable energy sources have made solar a financially attractive alternative in some areas, it can still be hard to find accurate, easy-to-understand information to help make the leap. The Solar Tool, developed by the Sustainable Design Lab at MIT and Boston-based design workshop MoDe Studio, aims to solve that problem for the city of Cambridge. Simply enter your address, and a comprehensive satellite map of Cambridge shows you how efficient your own

rooftop is for soaking up the sun’s rays, from excellent to poor, down to the square meter.

[EPR—EMERGENT PHASIC RESISTANCE,} What 'The Silent History' TEACHES about digital stories

[EPR—EMERGENT PHASIC RESISTANCE,} What 'The Silent History' TEACHES about digital stories | Machines Pensantes | Scoop.it

It's been nearly a year now since a couple of McSweeney's alums released The Silent History, a story in app form about a near-future epidemic of EPR—EMERGENT PHASIC RESISTANCE, "a congenital disorder characterized by the inability to generate or comprehend language of any kind." It was all very meta—a story about the loss of language, which of course is the tool we use to tell stories, that was itself a re-tooling of the way we tell stories. It was also beautifully written and published and inventively structured—an intriguing exploration of new possibilities for narrative. But now that it's been out for awhile, what does it tell us about the future of storytelling?

Прикольно, для того, чтобы открыть на iPad новый кусочек истории, читателю надо физически оказаться в том или ином месте. Интересно, что же это за история должна быть такая, чтобы так напрягаться...

 In schools across Australia there is strong support for linking learning in Technologies with learning literacy skills. Learning in Technologies places a high priority on accurate and unambiguous communication (ACARA, 2013).Implementing digital technologies in learning areas such as English allows special education teachers to facilitate and accommodate the learning needs of students. This is achieved through integrating assistive devices such as the iPad and its applications to develop critical literacy skills needed in the 21st century.  Consequently special education teacher have a better opportunity to develop important General capabilities such as literacy (LIT) to allows student to become literate as they develop the knowledge, skills and dispositions to interpret and use language confidently for learning and communicating in and out of school and for participating effectively in society (ACARA, 2013).

 

 

This website suggests various applications that can be used on the ipad to assist special needs students. The list of  applications were selected to improve and develop students reading, writing and spelling. They engage the students through making the activities, fun and engaging, which I think is important when teaching special needs students.
