Stop the Presses!!! WebGL Confirmed For IE11

Stop the Presses!!! WebGL Confirmed For IE11 | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it

This confirms WebGL for IE11. IE11 WebGL Conformance Test Results: 14,748 of 20,509 tests pass (71.9%).

Jed Fisher's insight:

Woohoo! It's unbelievable that it has taken so long but finally we can expect Microsoft WebGL support with IE11!! Now all browsers will support webgl on all modern platforms. Only iOS remains unsupported but for this there are ways to get it working. Fantastic news, the entire 3D community just cried out in joy!

Deloitte report - Augmented Government. Transforming government services through augmented reality

"These new technologies are changing humanity's view of itself, giving people the ability to redefine the limitations and capabilities of the species, changing the nature of what it means to be human."

Jed Fisher's insight:

Outstanding report on Augmented Reality by Deloitte. Tons of great information in here and packed with some great examples what you can do with augmented reality. 

It's funny, I used to think of AR as a technology looking for a market as there are so many really poor AR demos out there, eg "view a QR code for a popup ad".

Now I look at AR as simply a user interface extention. If used right it can completely revolutionize the user experience for your App, saving customers time, adding value, and helping people understand context.

Jed Fisher's insight:

You spend months working on your Apps design, you finally think that you've got it perfect and you send it to the wild. Then you look at your analytics and find that people are not using it as they should - how dare they!

Save yourself a lot of time, prototype, first on paper, and then with simple UI experiments, test it with users. Record it, watch them struggle, watch them not click where they should, most important watch them show you what needs to be improved. It's humbling, and it's extraordinarily valuable. 

However, sometimes, you just can't ask your customer to come into the office or you don't have everyone in the one location, whatever. 

This is a great idea from a friend and a member of the 4D Pipeline team. Mark has made a simple mobile "sled", it simply positions a camera to record the users experience, where their fingers go, what they click on, etc.

Simple, useful.

Have your pilot customers and QA departments use it. Simple, effective.

Great idea Mark! Awesome job.

Also outstanding to see the reviews by Disney Interactive and ESPN!

Google Makes 3 Big Bets on NVIDIA

Google Makes 3 Big Bets on NVIDIA | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it

Google has placed bets on Nvidia to fight its main rivals—Apple, Microsoft and Facebook by theStreet.com

Conclusion No. 1: I draw the conclusion that Google is working very closely with Nvidia for a new set of mobile computers—smartphones and tablets—with dramatically higher computer power, to be announced starting in late 2014. These smartphones and tablets would be more powerful than almost all of today's PCs.

Conclusion No. 2: It was clear that the Nvidia Shield is now Google's big play for the gaming market—at least for this year. It is a big part of Google's plan to make Microsoft's Xbox ... simply irrelevant.

Conclusion No. 3: Google's innovative use of GPUs in cloud photo processing could lead to higher demand for Nvidia's GPU cloud servers.

 

Jed Fisher's insight:

Bold article, well thought out strategical analysis by Anton Wahlman. I love reading such a fresh viewpoint. 

I would even add further to the authors big conclusions. 

I would add that Google Glass and it's vision (hehe - pun) of AR and visual search for the masses requires:

4) Great computer vision - everything should be searchable, and everything happens to be in 3D.  - Cloud computing with Nvidia GPUs is not an option it's a must. E.g. See a car you like, look at it, see everything about it.  Also applicable for Google Goggles.

5) Great visualization/rendering - the Augmented part of AR requires state of the art 3D visualization. This means overlaying 3D information on the "reality". Tegra's are going to again be musts but again, we are going to rely on the heavy lifting being done in the cloud with GPUs.

 

Disclosure - NVIDIA is a customer of 4D Pipeline's.

The Power of 3D: Using BIM for Facility Management | Area Development Online

The Power of 3D: Using BIM for Facility Management | Area Development Online | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Building owners and facility managers can reap the benefits of using building information modeling (BIM) long after construction is complete.
Jed Fisher's insight:

We live in buildings.

Our homes, workplaces, universities, museums, hospitals, etc. 

Companies spend millions making their new building campuses and attracting talent to them (see Facebook, Apple, NVIDIA, ...)

In sci-fi's we see people using 3D maps all the time to pull up useful information but in 2013 we barely do this...

And the crazy thing is that we often have these 3D/BIM models from the building process, and if we simply used them downstream there is so much more we could do.

By having a 3D/BIM model in our pocket, on our mobile, we can see where our colleagues are (see WifiSlam), find where a room is, see which meeting rooms are free (and where they are), find faulty equipment, do inspections, navigation, visually see where team members are located, get help navigating a museum, hospital, or university campus, etc, etc. 

I really am looking forward to seeing more great Apps which utilize 3D/BIM for downstream use, be it field management, facility management, or occupant interactions. 

It's 2013 - let's live in the future!

The wearable revolution is heading beyond Google Glass, fitness tracking and health monitoring. The future is wearables that conjure up a digital layer in real space to 'augment' reality. Read this article by Dan Farber on CNET News.

Via ThePinkSalmon, Aki Puustinen, Timo Ilomäki
Jed Fisher's insight:

Brilliant article on Augmented Reality (probably the best i've read), full history and summary on where it is going and what it will mean. 

I love the idea of "liking" something by giving your (physical) thumbs up. 

It's nuts, we are (were?) the generation (and the final generation) of the keyboard and mouse users. Today the mouse has almost been replaced with touch interfaces and gesture support. We now talk about how easy an iPad UI is to use and how toddlers and grandmothers can use them but the next step - the augmented reality step will be even more instinctual.

We often think of the user interface (UI) as the enabler, a good UI unlocks the potential of a product. However ultimately the best UI is a no UI. UI in itself is a barrier. Ultimately the best UI augments our world and we interact with it in the same way we interact with our real physical world. The result being a zero learning curve.

Is Google Glass Going To Change Architecture Forever?

Is Google Glass Going To Change Architecture Forever? | 4D Pipeline - Visualizing reality, trends and breaking news in Mobile, 3D, AR, VR, and CAD. | Scoop.it
Is architecture ready for Google Glass? The augmented reality that Google Glass promises may not seem architectural, but in truth the two couldn’t be more related.
Jed Fisher's insight:

The answer is Yes :)

And it's also Yes for manufacturing in general.

Or at least Glass is a catalyst for this. It is worth noting that, as it stands now, the Glass API has no support for AR at all.

That said, it's only a matter of time, AR Glasses are coming.


If we can hook up Augmented Reality (which will require Cloud computing (or low power mobile GPU computing) for the computer visions and visualization/rendering) then there is a wealth of possibilities in not just architecture and navigation like experiences but much more - like being able to see useful information (show me what part of the building is going to be worked on tomorrow, etc).

It's also a huge enabler for manufacturing. Imagine being able to recognize your product (requires good 3D computer vision but we are getting close now, eg Google Goggles). For example, take a look at a car in the street - "oh i like that one, what options are available for it?" - Bam - i see the options, prices, and related information overlaid on the car. 

The future is not only mobile, it's visual!

Jed Fisher's insight:

Late March Tinkercad sent out an announcement that were shutting down operations. 

I, like many others, expressed sadness that this was the end of TinkerCAD. Tinkercad like a handful of other 3D startups brought fresh ideas and new hope to the CAD industry (even if they hadn't quite figured out their business model).

 

March 27th - @4Dpipeline - RIP Tinkercad, the only 3D modeling environment with a non-atrocious UI.

 

Well, that said, they are back from the dead. Autodesk spotted the opportunity and made them an offer to find a new home with the growing list of acquisitions at Autodesk HQ. I'm not sure now what the future will hold for them now. I suspect Autodesk might fit this into their 123D offering. Regardless, I'm glad to see the Tinkercad guys have a happier conclusion (end? beginning?).
