    As part of its ARCore release announcement, Google also revealed a forthcoming app that's sure to excite those who celebrate '80s pop culture. That app is Ghostbusters World, which is coming later this year from Sony Pictures Entertainment Consumer Products, Ghost Corps (the Columbia Pictures subsidiary that serves as the caretaker for the film franchise), and game publisher FourThirtyThree Inc. While the trailer for the game doesn't reveal much in terms of gameplay, the trailer's description promises "skill-based gameplay and numerous other exciting features yet to be announced."

    by Tommy Palladino on February 23, 2018 at 6:17 pm

    In one of the worst-kept secrets of the upcoming Mobile World Congress, Google has officially released ARCore on the Play Store for owners of the latest flagship Android smartphones. In a blog post on Friday, Google promoted its augmented reality toolkit for Android from developer preview to version 1.0, just in time for the annual Barcelona, Spain event, which begins next week and promises to offer a number of AR surprises from various companies.

    by Jason Odom on February 23, 2018 at 3:43 pm

    Continuing to take the steps necessary to reign supreme among the top game engines of the world, with a steady stream of major updates, enhancements, and new features, the team at Unity are keeping the user base in a regular state of surprise. At this rate, it's almost like Christmas every few days. Having recently added its own shader programming language, a scriptable rendering pipeline, and a number of other powerful features in the latest Beta version, it's completely understandable that the various development forums and chat spaces have many messages that start with, "Hey, I'm new to... mor […]

  • Magic Leap Partner Weta Workshop Confirms Shooter Game Coming in 2018
    by Adario Strange on February 22, 2018 at 11:57 pm

    A controversial video from Magic Leap's past has once again surfaced, but this time it comes with a lot more credibility and a good bit of excitement around the Magic Leap One headset. New Zealand's Weta Workshop has revealed that it will release the game "Dr. Grordbort's: Invaders" in partnership with Magic Leap later this year. The first preview we had of the game was way back in 2015, in a Magic Leap concept video that many had been led to believe was an actual view of the headset and its software in action. Later reports revealed that the footage was not, in fact, shot though Magic Leap... mor […]

  • Google Quietly Adds Samsung Galaxy S7, S8+ & Note 8 to ARCore Supported Devices
    by Tommy Palladino on February 22, 2018 at 10:10 pm

    A very low-key update to the ARCore developer's site has expanded the universe of officially-supported devices for Google's augmented reality toolkit to include the Samsung Galaxy S7, S8+, and Note 8 handsets. The expansion itself isn't a surprise with regard to the S8+ and Note 8, as Samsung and Google announced in Oct. 2017 that the devices would gain support for ARCore "soon." Screenshot from the ARCore Developer Page. What is surprising is the stealthy way in which the move was made. A trip in the Wayback Machine reveals that the devices were actually added as early as Feb. 5, so the... mor […]

  • Concept Apple AR Smartglasses Offer Powerful Vision of Company's Next Wearable
    by Adario Strange on February 22, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    After years of rumors, we got our Apple Watch, and we have our anniversary iPhone, so now everyone has moved on to a new Apple rumor obsession: Apple smartglasses. And, in keeping with Apple rumor tradition, we're getting some pretty imaginative ideas of what the next big Apple product might look like. The latest Apple smartglasses concept comes from South Korea-based designer Taeyeon Kim, and it's less about fantastical features and more about a practical look and construction that could really work. Fans of Snapchat will notice that Kim uses the familiar and generally popular frame shape... mor […]

  • Microsoft's HoloLens Transports One of Japan's Oldest Temples into the Future in Kyoto
    by Adario Strange on February 22, 2018 at 5:08 pm

    The oldest Zen temple in Kyoto, Japan, is now firmly rooted in the future with the launch of the MR Museum on Thursday. Produced by hakuhodo-VRAR, a new HoloLens experience at Kyoto's Kennin-ji Zen temple turns what was static imagery and art into living history, including a holographic Zen Buddhist monk to explain what you're seeing. Using the HoloLens, visitors get to see the 400-year-old painting "The Folding Screen of Fujin and Raijin (Wind God and Thunder God Screens)" by Tawaraya Sotatsu come to life before their very eyes. The temple dates back to the second year of the Kennin Era (A... mor […]

    by Tommy Palladino on February 22, 2018 at 4:59 pm

    Famed musician and composer Brian Eno is giving the air guitar and drumming crowd the means to make music from their gesturing through the Microsoft HoloLens. "Bloom: Open Space," an interactive audio-visual exhibit taking place this week in Amsterdam, gives attendees the opportunity to compose melodies and musical patterns by interacting with holograms via hand gestures. The experience is available via the Bloom app for HoloLens, a collaboration between Eno and collaborator Peter Chilvers, a musician and software designer. (There's also an iOS version of the Bloom app.) "I have always been... mor […]

  • Japan's VR Girlfriend Is Coming to Augmented Reality to Creep Us Out in the Real World
    by Adario Strange on February 21, 2018 at 10:21 pm

    We already know that the connection between virtual and augmented reality is pretty tight, with tools like Unity making porting some apps between the two platforms fairly frictionless. But there are some things currently going in VR that just don't need to come to the world of AR. Exhibit A: VR Kanojo, a virtual reality girlfriend that users get to interact with in some pretty disturbing ways. Earlier this month, Japan's IVR showed off an AR take on VR Kanojo called AR Kanojo (kanojo means "girlfriend" in Japanese). A video preview of AR Kanojo was posted on YouTube and, as you might expect... mor […]

  • Facebook Is Making It Easier to Post AR Content in Its News Feed
    by Tommy Palladino on February 21, 2018 at 10:03 pm

    A recent update to Facebook's News Feed could significantly broaden its reach when it comes to delivering augmented reality content. In a post on its developer's blog on Tuesday, the company announced that it has adopted the industry-standard gITF 2.0 format for 3D posts on its News Feed. Facebook introduced the ability to add 3D posts last October. By adopting this fairly standard and open file format, it will now be much easier to share 3D content among the social media giant's over 2 billion users. To show off the News Feed's augmented reality capabilities, Universal Pictures shared a 3D... mor […]

    by Adario Strange on February 21, 2018 at 3:59 pm

    In just a few days, all the Galaxy S9 and S9+ leaks will come to an end, as Samsung will officially unveil its latest top-tier smartphone. But before that happens, we're all getting another leaked image of the handset thanks to a bit of snooping and the magic of augmented reality. Mobile phone-focused website XDA Developers surfaced AR imagery of the Galaxy S9 on Tuesday, working with Reddit user thesbros to extract the virtual treat embedded in Samsung's Unpacked 2018 app. The app, which is currently available on the Google Play Store, is specifically crafted to work for registered guests... mor […]

    by Tommy Palladino on February 20, 2018 at 11:27 pm

    Mobile augmented reality developer Blippar's mission is to construct a computer vision map the world, with visual recognition of thousands of notable buildings, bridges, castles, holy places. A major step toward that goal has been taken by the company this month with the announcement of its landmark recognition API.

  • Theaters Turn to Mobile AR Gaming to Reclaim Pre-Show Movie Experience
    by Tommy Palladino on February 20, 2018 at 10:39 pm

    Moviegoers who arrive at the theater early are no longer a captive audience for the ads, trivia, and miscellaneous content that precede the movie trailers than run before the feature presentation, as the ubiquity of the smartphone has become the preferred distraction for early birds at the theater. One of the companies that produces those pre-show reels, National CineMedia (NCM), wants to take back the pre-show experience by way of a mobile AR app called Noovie ARcade. With the Noovie ARcade app for iOS or Android, users can scan targets embedded in the pre-show reel or displayed in the lobby... mor […]

    by Tommy Palladino on February 20, 2018 at 9:47 pm

    In a LinkedIn post published on Tuesday, Microsoft's leading advocate for the HoloLens made a prediction that the mixing of immersive technologies will define augmented reality in 2018. Alex Kipman, the Technical Fellow for new device categories for Microsoft's Windows and Devices Group (and NR50 member), believes the convergence of "mixed reality" and artificial intelligence, the melding of augmented and virtual reality, and the rise of immersive communications as developments represent the key advances in the technology this year. Or, in other words, these are Microsoft's priorities for... mor […]

  • Cornell Researchers Use Augmented Reality to Craft 3D Printed Objects in Real Time
    by Adario Strange on February 20, 2018 at 5:33 pm

    We've seen a number of unique mashups of augmented reality with other bleeding edge technologies, but somehow it took until 2018 for someone to come up with a now obvious complement to AR: 3D printing. Cornell information science doctoral student Huaishu Peng has developed an experimental technique that allows him to use AR to modify a 3D printing structure while it's being fabricated by a robotic arm. He calls the system the Robotic Modeling Assistant (RoMA). "Instead of designing 3D models on the computer screen, we wanted to give users the opportunity to work in conjunction with the robot... mor […]

    by Adario Strange on February 19, 2018 at 11:40 pm

    The once blurry and mysterious vision of Magic Leap's future is slowly coming into focus in the present, despite the company's obsessive attempts to keep any and all information under wraps until the next reveal is absolutely necessary. A new tidbit of information hints at an addition to the company's unfolding story that almost no one had accounted for: retail stores. In a job posting that surfaced this week, Magic Leap announces that it's looking for a director of store design. Specifically, the job listing outlines the position as playing "a key role in delivering on the promise of Magic... mor […]

  • Microsoft Enlists Rapper/Actor Common to Push Its HoloLens Future During NBA All-Star Weekend
    by Adario Strange on February 19, 2018 at 6:26 pm

    The Microsoft HoloLens has a fairly passionate, yet relatively small group of users pushing the developer-centric device forward, mostly spreading the word about the device through word of mouth and meetups. But this weekend, during the annual NBA All-Star festivities, we got a look at how Microsoft may be planning to market the device if it ever goes truly mainstream. Using the spoken word style approach, delivered by rapper and actor Common (who also performed at the NBA All-Star game), Microsoft put together a montage of some of its newest products under the tagline "empowering innovation... mor […]

  • Microsoft Makes HoloLens Available for Rent for Trial Evaluation & Trade Shows
    by Tommy Palladino on February 16, 2018 at 10:09 pm

    While the consensus among some in the augmented reality community is that the Microsoft HoloLens is the best device available at present, it also remains the most cost-prohibitive option, with the development edition costing $3,000. To give customers another option to work with the HoloLens, Microsoft has partnered with Abcomrents, a company that specializes in renting technology for use in trade show exhibitions, to offer the HoloLens for rent. Announced in a blog post by Lorraine Bardeen, the general manager of mixed reality experiences at Microsoft, the program is currently only available... mor […]

  • ARKit 101: Creating Simple Interactions in Augmented Reality for the iPhone & iPad
    by Jason Odom on February 14, 2018 at 6:47 pm

    As a developer, before you can make augmented-reality robots that move around in the real world, controlled by a user's finger, you first need to learn how to harness the basics of designing AR software for a touchscreen interface. In recent years, the vernacular for referring to people who consume entertainment has slowly shifted from "viewer" to "user." The catalyst for this change was the move from simple passive-viewing experiences to interactive ones. And while there is, and will continue to be, a need for non-interactive entertainment such as film and TV for the foreseeable future, the... mor […]

    by Tommy Palladino on February 14, 2018 at 5:38 pm

    During the unveiling of its content partnership with the NBA, Magic Leap CEO Rony Abovitz, with an assist from former player/current pitchman Shaquille O'Neal, described at least one of the ways fans would be able to experience sports using the augmented reality device. What he did not do was show us what it would look like. Luckily, we don't exactly have to use our own imaginations. During O'Neal's video testimonial of his experience, he described being able to watch a game taking place on the table in front of him in 3D. The video also included behind-the-scenes footage of Magic Leap staff... mor […]

While the device was not displayed on stage, NBA legend Shaquille O'Neal appeared via video wearing a large-sized Magic Leap One: Creator Edition. In the video, O'Neal described watching a full-court game projected on the tabletop in front of him.

    by Tommy Palladino on February 12, 2018 at 11:28 pm

    Among the revelations uncovered during the December unveiling of the Magic Leap One: Creator Edition was the fact that the Lightwear augmented reality headset would be tethered to a wearable computer called the Lightpack. Now, according to a recently-published patent application, it appears that the Lightpack may be doing more than just supplying computing power to the Lightwear. Filed on July 31, 2017, the patent covers a fixed-distance system that configures a light source to project a light beam in augmented and virtual reality systems. The method for determining the fixed distance... mor […]

    by Tommy Palladino on February 9, 2018 at 10:12 pm

    The latest cosmetics brand to launch its own augmented reality try-on tool is Cover Girl, which introduced its browser-based experience this week. The premise should be familiar to anyone who has followed augmented reality over the past year, and likely old hat to those who take their cosmetics shopping seriously.

The looks can then be purchased via Walmart.com. Desktop browser with static image. desktop browser with a real face.. In our... mor […]

    by Tommy Palladino on February 9, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    Although The New York Times may have won the race in terms of presenting coverage of the 2018 Winter Olympics through augmented reality first, The Washington Post is nevertheless working to compete in AR in a different way—via gaming. This week, the newspaper published an AR experience for the Winter Olympics in the Augmented Reality section of The Washington Post Classic app for iOS and Android. While the AR experience for The New York Times relies on detailed 3D models of athletes to tell a deeper story, The Washington Post stages animated races between various time trial sports.

That's the main takeaway following the company's 2017 earnings conference call, which was held on Tuesday. While the company credits several of its products and initiatives (including an improved Snapchat app for Android) for its 104% year-over-year revenue growth and the addition of 8.9 million daily active users in the fourth quarter, augmented reality was often cited as a catalyst for its positive results.

    Amazingly, SpaceX founder Elon Musk just launched a Tesla into space, bound for Mars. But just because you're not a billionaire with drone rockets at your disposal, that doesn't mean you can't participate in the automobile-infused future of space here on Earth. Audi has just launched Quattro Coaster, an iOS app that lets you sample what it's like to pilot an Audi Quattro in the comfort of you home in augmented reality.
