The Australian federal government is taking the support of cutting-edge technology to promote tourism in the country. Australia is one of those countries which rely heavily on tourism when it comes enhancing its economic growth. Perhaps that’s the reason the federal government is now using augmented reality technology for increasing the growth of tourism industry. Recently a huge augmented reality billboard or screen has been installed at the Canberra Airport in Australia, which offers an opportunity to passengers to explore the vivid wildlife that’s found in the country. The augmented reality billboard is designed and installed by a Canberra-based tech firm called the APositive. According to Amber Standley, who is the founder as well as the CEO of APositive, it’s the only game of its kind that’s been installed in an Australian airport. It is extremely difficult for the passengers arriving at Canberra Airport to ignore this enormous augmented reality screen which makes it possible for them to touch ferocious and colossal animals like cheetah, and whale. This augmented reality screen is installed at the departure entrance right next to the place from where passengers pick -up their baggage. This AR billboard is funded jointly by Canberra Airport, Visit Canberra […]
As we march into the tail end of 2016, “The Year of VR”, let’s take some stock in what has happened this year, look ahead at how the market will develop, and then drill down to see what this means for employment and business prospects within the sector. The dawn of consumer VR happened this year, three major premium headsets launched and we are now talking about millions of premium VR customers for the first time. Oculus Rift & HTC Vive It began with CES in January 2016, Oculus Rift announced its pre-orders for their headset. It would include an XBOX 360 controller and basic positional tracking up to 9 feet with a single camera. Mid summer, about the time that Oculus Rift should have been shipping its CV1 headsets to customers, HTC Vive announced that its headset was shipping and that they had plenty of supply and could guarantee delivery within three weeks. HTC had jumped on what looked like a manufacturing and distribution problem for the young Oculus. Component shortages and other manufacturing delays put some Oculus customers almost 2 months past their shipping window. Oculus was kind enough to refund the shipping costs to those who had to […]
After the stunning success of ‘Pokémon Go’ which was launched by Niantic, Inc., a couple of months ago the craze for augmented reality (AR) has grown manifold among people across nations. A wide range of people who had absolutely no knowledge of what exactly augmented reality is, now fully understand the potential and significance of this technology, and the credit goes to Pokemon Go – a full-fledged location-based AR game. At a time when everyone wants to know more and more about augmented reality, a team of researchers from the University of Helsinki in Finland claims that their study shows AR can prove to be highly crucial for not-so-bright students when it comes to learning different kinds of subjects including science. In other words, Helsinki-based researchers are trying their level best to use augmented reality in education, wherein its implementation can make learning quite simple and fun for all those students who face difficulties in understanding science and other subjects. The study successfully shows that all the struggling students were effectively benefited with the use of AR technology and it eventually allowed them to bridge the gap that existed between them and rest of the students in terms of learning […]
Being a couple who is expecting a child, have you ever thought of visualizing your unborn baby. Well, all those couples who desperately want to see their unborn child will be able to do so now with the assistance of 3D virtual reality. This cutting edge technology is being used in every field toady when it comes to offering high-quality experiences to users. And the same applies to medical industry as well, wherein doctors are now using 3D virtual reality in medical imaging, a technique implemented for developing visual representations for internal body organs. Researchers in Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro city, claim that they have come up with a magnificent technology that allows expecting couples to interact with their child in virtual reality. The research is carried out in Rio de Janeiro by Dr. Heron Werner Jr. and his team from the Clínica de Diagnóstico por Imagem. As far as understanding the growth and development of an unborn baby is concerned, so far doctors have been using techniques like ultrasound imaging or sonography through which a clear picture of the fetus can be obtained. However, with the use of cutting edge technology in medical science, doctors can now allow parents […]
Tesla Motors, a well-known American automobile manufacturer which is rumored to be working on an augmented reality project, has shocked the world by hiring Andrew Kim, a former Microsoft designer, who was associated with its HoloLens project. The news of Kim being hired by Tesla came from his own LinkedIn account wherein he had updated his new job profile. Apart from working as a senior designer for Microsoft’s HoloLens project, Kim was also involved in designing the Xbox One S, which is considered as the highly innovative Xbox ever. Kim, who is now being recruited as a Lead Designer at Tesla’s Design Studio that is located in a city called Hawthorne in California, is expected to play a great role in the growth of the company in terms of introducing innovative technology. His appointment as a lead designer gives a clue or kind of makes it clear that the company is definitely looking forward to including an augmented reality feature to the cars manufactured by it. This is the second time Tesla has recruited an employ from Microsoft, as it had already hired a computer scientist from it last year. Tesla is a kind of company which has been trying […]
The state of UI design in most vehicles today is widely criticized for being unintuitive, outdated, and aesthetically unappealing. Car manufacturers have been slow to implement the quality of design that other industries assume as standard. As a result, many designers have taken on this opportunity to speculate how the future of vehicle UIs will change our driving experiences. There are more developments in the automotive industry seemingly every day. So much so in fact that the car industry predicts more change in the next two decades than it saw in the previous century. Therefore, cutting edge digital designers should focus their attentions towards this critical industry. So, what will be the future of vehicle UIs? Can they fundamentally change our relationships to our cars? The following is a curated collection of beautiful and futuristic Vehicle HUDs (Head Up Displays), Interactive UIs, and third party app controllers created by different designers from around the world. Some of the designs are captured from live products, and some are still in development.

In a perfect world, inspections would be pointless and a pure waste of energy. Yet a perfect world with infallible people and systems does not exist. One needs to make a trade-off between the cost of inspections and the risk and cost of process failures. For many decades, pen and paper have been the tools in every inspector’s pocket. Digital technology is about to make these tools obsolete, reshaping them into antiques of a soon to be forgotten past. Smart sensors, smart glasses and smart robots are the instruments for smart inspections in the Industry 4.0. These maturing technologies will fundamentally transform the inspection process as we have known it for so long. Trust is good, but… In a perfect world, inspections would be pointless and a pure waste of energy. Yet the perfect world does not exist and probably never will. Shedding the illusion of a perfect world, both Lenin and Franklin advocated for inspections from a different perspective. The former argued that “trust is good but control is better”. The latter coined the phrase “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”. In a way, inspection processes are a search for the flaw in the system […]
