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

Google Launches Augmented Reality App ARCore For Android | #AR #RA  | Augmented Reality & VR Tools and News | 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.

See Also: Glass restarted after two years in the dark

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.

Disney Has Invented 3D Coloring Books | Being a kid today is fun in schools | Creativity | Augmented Reality

Disney Has Invented 3D Coloring Books | Being a kid today is fun in schools | Creativity | Augmented Reality | Augmented Reality & VR Tools and News | Scoop.it
With its Color Alive line, Crayola was the first company to merge coloring books and apps so kids could bring their on-page creations to life. But Disney Research is taking that idea one step further by letting kids see a coloring book character move in 3D while they’re still coloring it.

It’s all made possible by a new augmented reality app that Disney Research has developed that’s able to track and capture real-time images from a mobile device’s camera, and then map them onto any 3D deformable surface. In the example above it’s a cartoon elephant whose pants are slowly being colored in, but it could just as easily be a castle getting new flags, or a space ship getting some battle damage.

Juhani Pihkala's insight:

FOV and FPS these two items are massively important for VR and Mixed Reality headsets.

I see Meta2 have just come out with 90deg FOV (much improved from the original ~45deg) but no where near to StarVR 201deg FOV. 

This is a great table to see all the providers and where they stand. Unfortunately it's already quite a bit out of date (May 2015) so would love to find a new table rather than make my own. Any links would be appreciated!
