Henrik Safegaard - Cloneartist's curator insight, May 8, 3:30 AM

This project was created by artist Stan Douglas and the National Film Board of Canada's digital studio. And unlike 3D augmented reality gaming experiences — like the Oculus Rift, which was recently purchased by Facebook for $2 billion — it's a holodeck-like experience and your body is the joystick.

1st Large Scale Augmented Reality in New Zealand - Vodafone VNZMA App VIDEO

In Vodafone NZ's implementation - claimed to be "the first large scale augmented reality implementation of its kind in New Zealand" - staff in its retail stores have been issued with T-shirts bearing music-related graphics that are recognised by Android and iPhone apps that have been made available for download.  When the app is installed in a phone and its camera pointed at the person wearing the T-shirt, the T-shirt's image appears on the screen of the phone, animated and with accompanying music.  Vodafone developed the app in conjunction with Smudge Apps in Christchurch.

We could indeed ask whether online gaming isn't augmented reality's future. I'm not an expert with AR but it seems to me this promising technology is taking time to find massive scale applications. Not unlike voice recognition. Maybe gaming is the way to make it finally happen?

Nik Pregelj's curator insight, March 20, 2013 6:59 PM

This article looks at the google glasses and the possiblity of creating an Augmented reality where you can turn ANY real life environment into a 'battlefield' for first person shooting games just by wearing the glasses.

 

I think the fun factor of being able to turn any environment you want into a 'map' to game on and then play a first person shooter in it could definetly make this extremely successful. This could definately be the future and next level of gaming.

 

Although this new way of gaming could be extremely fun it may not be appealing to all gamers and/or porffesional and competitive gamers who prefer to be inside in a relaxed position instead of having to be physically active for long periods of time while they game.

 

This could be an issue as to how succesfull and widespread this new form of gaming will be with a lot of people not wanting to have to be physically active while they game. This could hinder the success however there could still and probably will be a huge market for this type of gaming with how immersive and interactive it is.

 

Theres also huge possibilities with advertising with this sort of gaming aswell.
