My visit to the Augmented World Expo Europe AWEEU 2017

My visit to the Augmented World Expo Europe AWEEU 2017 | Augmented Reality & VR Tools and News | Scoop.it

AWE, the world's largest AR+VR conference and expo. Munich Europe October 19-20, 2017.

I had a great time attending the Augmented World Expo in Munich (www.aweeu.com). This is the first time AWE has been in Europe and Munich was a great choice. Munich is where Metaio was based (purchased by Apple) and is near to the headquarters of BMW, AUDI, Porsche, and others. Munich is also my former home so of course i’m very fond of it being there!

It was a two day event, day one was about AR technology, use cases and how to implement AR in your processes. Day 2 was more content and pitches (startups in the AR space).

Audi had a strong presense at the event with insights into how and where they use AR and VR. Also companies like Lockheed Martin and Coca-Cola.

All the tech providers were there, Vuforia of course, so too were Wikitudes, VisionLab, ViewAR, Bosch, and many others. For headsets, we saw many HoloLens, and booths by Meta, ODG, Vuzix, Epson, Daqri, and others.

The exciting Avegant https://www.avegant.com/video-headset was there. Everyone was super keen to see their light field technology (this allows the user to focus on different points of view - something far away and then something close (something AR has trouble with)). Avegant is special because i think it’s doing one of the things that Magic Leap might be working on.

Some fun highlights of the show: I liked the Massless pen! I think this is a really nice concept that not only lets people write in 3D but lets them manipulate the environment (like a mouse does in 2D). Another fun surprise was seeing Prezi AR - although i’m a avid Prezi fan i did not know they had an AR version! The Nvidia Holodeck is also great if you havent had a chance to try it.

An interesting new company i had not come across was Insidernavigation. It’s just that - navigation solution for inside buildings, delivering AR to mobile phones without special hardware. Another new one was Diota. It came recommended and they indeed had some good SLAM technology. Unfortunately entirely closed ecosystem and they actually say they do not intend to expose any SDK or API, they want everything done by them….

Here are some other good writeups about the event:
http://www.augmented.org/blog/2017/09/awe-conference-augmented-reality-coming-home/
<will add more as more are published>

All in all, it was a great event and definitely keep/put AWE on your radar for the US and Europe.

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.
