Five Ways Teachers Can Use—and Create—Augmented Reality Experiences - EdSurge News

Five Ways Teachers Can Use—and Create—Augmented Reality Experiences - EdSurge News | Augmented and Virtual Reality and Language Learning | Scoop.it
Educators are constantly challenged to find ways to keep kids’ attention in class when, outside of school, their world is full of all kinds of highly compelling and visually stimulating media. Many educators find that gamifying learning keeps students engaged. BreakoutEDU, for example, is an educational game platform that includes a curated set of physical materials—think padlocks, boxes and invisible ink—and activities across a wide range of subjects and grade levels. Students might sort images annotated with letters by state of matter (solid, liquid, or gas), for instance, revealing a secret code word that gets them one step closer to the goal. BreakoutEDU is a physical game platform, requiring a significant amount of planning and manual configuration—setting combinations locks, writing clues on hint cards, hiding clues around the classroom—and then supervising the activity as the teams go about their game play. 

Augmented reality tools, however, reduce the time and effort required to set up gaming activities while allowing teachers to break through the noise and engage students with the type of immersive content they find in their daily lives. For example, after watching a 10-minute tutorial, Yvonne Rodriguez was able to create her own AR Experience by arranging components—which she describes as “digital LEGOs”—on her computer screen. “It’s just so easy,” says Rodriguez. “I am not a tech-savvy teacher at all. So if I can do it, anyone can do it.”

This is the Exciting Future of Augmented Reality

This is the Exciting Future of Augmented Reality | Augmented and Virtual Reality and Language Learning | Scoop.it
This is a guest post from Rae Steinbach at Y Media Labs, an award-winning
mobile strategy and application development company based in Silicon
Valley. The topic, augmented reality (AR), is of particular interest to me
both personally and professionally. I have written about use cases for
augmented reality in logistics here, and Y Media Labs has actually
developed an AR drone flight simulator app in partnership with Drone
Company DJI and Epson. These guys are really plugged into the future of AR
- I hope you enjoy.

Daqri Ships Augmented Reality Smart Glasses For Professionals

Daqri Ships Augmented Reality Smart Glasses For Professionals | Augmented and Virtual Reality and Language Learning | Scoop.it
Daqri has begun shipping its augmented reality smart glasses for the workplace.
Los Angeles-based Daqri is betting that AR — a technology that overlays digital animations on top of the real world — will take off first in the enterprise, where customers are willing to pay a higher price in order to solve complex problems. The idea is to help people solve real-world problems, like fixing a jet engine or piecing together an assembly. Daqri argues that the gains in productivity and efficiency make up for the initial cost.
At $4,995, the system is not cheap, but it is optimized to present complex workloads and process a lot of data right on the glasses themselves. It is available for direct purchase from Daqri’s web site and through channel partners. Daqri is targeting customers across manufacturing, field services, maintenance and repair, inspections, construction, and others.

Above: Daqri overlays data on the real world.

Daqri has built a number of technologies from the ground up. The Daqri is powered by a Visual Operating System (VOS) and weighs 0.7 pounds. The glasses have a 44-degree field of view and use an Intel Core m7 processor running at 3.1 gigahertz. They run at 90 frames per second and have a resolution of 1360 x 768. They also connect via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi and have sensors such as a wide-angle tracking camera, a depth-sensing camera, and an HD color camera for taking photos and videos.
“Daqri has developed a comprehensive strategy to bring professional-grade AR to scale, including hardware, software, developer-friendly tools, and a robust partner ecosystem,” said Roy Ashok, CEO of Daqri, in a statement.
Ashok recently replaced company founder Brian Mullins as CEO.
Daqri partnered with contract manufacturer Flex to build the device and is collaborating with Dell on supply chain applications. Daqri has also partnered with enterprise software offerings from Oracle, IBM, Autodesk, Siemens, Emerson, and others. Daqri competes with rivals such as Osterhout Design Group.
Besides the smart glasses, Daqri is also making smart heads-up display (HUD) technology, which is used in more than 150,000 vehicles.
