Last year, on November first, Creative Works has announced its partnership with KWP to showcase Mixed Reality (MR). First and foremost, what is MR and how does it differ from Virtual and Augmented Realities? Read on to find out. What is Mixed Reality? Mixed Reality or MR refers to the integration of the real world with the virtual world. This is also called hybrid reality. It also mixes both Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR). It integrates the concept of Virtual and Augmented Realities with the real world. This is used in video games such as the Pokemon Go and Minecraft. While Virtual Reality focuses on a completely artificial environment or simulation, Augmented Reality focuses on a semi-virtual simulation wherein layers of digital enhancements are created that interact with the real environment. Although AR and MR are quite the same, MR is more on the human side because it is not in-home or personal. It encourages interpersonal communication or interaction with other human beings who are physically present. What is the Partnership About? Technological innovations like this have become a hit because of the increasing demands of globalization. Although mixed reality has become a trend mostly in video games, […]

Virtual Reality and 360˚ video have already stepped into our lives and by now there are a couple of big players who are utilizing the power of this medium. The power of VR is mostly showing in Journalism because of its unique ability to tell powerful stories with an emphasis on translating emotion from the live field to the viewer. New York Times embraced it (VR) wholeheartedly, Huffington Post acquired RYOT, Time Magazine is in VR and lately, CNN announced a step into Virtual Reality reporting. Immersive Journalism seems to have a bright future. But what about the other digital publishers? Virtual Reality is notorious for being complex and expensive to develop. But one Seattle-Slovenian startup has solved that issue. VIAR has been developing a VR digital publishing platform for about a year and a half. During the time they have been talking to Virtual Reality producers, real estate agencies, and publishers one on one. Each had their own idea on how to use their platform, but where it really started to shine was in the journalism field. Viar360, the platform has the power to combine 360˚ images and videos together into an interactive virtual reality story. This unique combination isn’t the […]
The rapid growth of e-commerce in the last few years is a proof that more and more consumers are drawn to the convenience of online shopping. Practically everything people would like to purchase is available on the internet. And with just a few taps and swipes on a mobile device, consumers can freely and quickly choose a product and purchase it without having to line up and leave the comforts of their own home or wherever they may be. But then there are certain apprehensions about online shopping. The main concern is that consumers cannot actually see if a piece of clothing will fit them perfectly and if the actual item will meet expectations. Of course, uncertainties can lead to empty shopping carts, hence, lower business conversion for merchants. The Value of AR to Businesses Fortunately, e-commerce has been evolving with innovative technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality, which are developed to address the customer’s pain points and ultimately, to enhance overall shopping experience. With VR and AR, not only can merchants connect with their target market, but they can also get a lot of repeat customers. In this day and age, the competition is not just about […]
Germany-based developer Mikavaa announces the upcoming release of its mobile virtual reality action game with the rather weird name “Glubsch” – yeah, try to say it again. Glubsch is a first-person shooter game in which players have to fight against attacking waves of hostile microbes in a creepy and foreboding cave landscape. One of Glubsch’s unique characteristics is its new approach to first-person interaction inside VR without the use of external game controllers. The clever use of the mobile device´s built-in sensors enables the player to navigate and interact almost freely within the game. An exceptional interaction design lets the players fight with their voice, avoid enemy attacks through skillful body movement, and move around using their viewing direction. “We wanted to create a game that really pushes the boundaries of what mobile virtual reality can be like and still stick to the old principle: Easy to learn, hard to master.” says Johan Wagner, Co-founder of Mikavaa and head of development. “The most challenging part was to find ways to overcome technical limitations of smartphones such as missing head-tracking. And with the unique and intuitive game controls we did a pretty good job. The player’s body movement takes up the […]

BY NERMIN HAJDARBEGOVIC – TECHNICAL EDITOR @ TOPTAL #Android #AndroidWear #Google #Wearable There is no diplomatic and professional way to put it: Android Wear is flopping; and it’s flopping quite badly. The smartwatch platform has been around for 18 months, yet the fact that it was introduced a few quarters before Apple rolled out its smartwatch does not appear to be helping. So why is Android Wear performing poorly and what does this mean for developers? Several factors conspired to stifle growth, ranging from lack of Google development, to inadequate hardware. Some of these problems have been addressed, some are being addressed, while others cannot be addressed with currently available technology. Android Wear Shipments Aren’t Impressive How bad is it? Android Wear was officially announced on March 18, 2014, but the first devices started shipping a quarter later. By the end of 2014, they were joined by more attractive products, such as the round Moto 360 and LG G Watch R, as well as rectangular models from heavyweights like Sony and Asus. It didn’t help, and 2014 sales were abysmal: an estimated 720,000 units. Apple managed to pull ahead of Google in a matter of months, selling an estimated 3.6 […]
BY DEMIR SELMANOVIC – SOFTWARE ENGINEER @ TOPTAL #Android #GoogleGlass #Java #OKGlass #Tutorial #WearableTech Google Glass is a futuristic technology that promises to revolutionize how we use our devices to interact with the world. But from a developer’s standpoint, what is so special about developing for the glass? The answer is “Nothing!” In fact, from the perspective of an experienced Android developer, Google Glass is just another Android device with a very small screen and limited features! The fact that anyone with Android development knowledge can become a member of this “elite” community of futuristic wearable-tech evangelists is part of what makes Google Glass so awesome. Sure, you will need to learn a few new things, such as the difference between “Immersion” and “Active Card”, but as you will see, the learning curve is not steep. The purpose of this Google Glass tutorial is to lay the groundwork for developing any Glass application, through the creation of a simple app that encompasses all of the common steps. My goal is to save you some time in research and trial-and-error, and enable you to run your first Glass application as soon as possible. In this tutorial we’ll first go over how […]
Social media behemoth Facebook is taking all the necessary steps to gain a foothold in the virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) market across the world. Recently, its CEO Mark Zuckerberg has revealed that the company has hired a former Google and Xiaomi employee Hugo Barra for heading its VR team at Oculus – which was purchased by Facebook in 2014 for $2 billion. Zuckerberg announced the information of hiring Barra through a Facebook post. The reports suggest that Barra, who is a computer scientist born in Belo Horizonte, Brazil worked with Google before joining Beijing-based smartphone developer Xiaomi. Barra joined Google back in 2008 and served the company effectually for more than five years. After two years of joining Google as Group Product Manager to lead its Mobile team, he eventually became a part of its Android team in the year 2010. From 2010 to 2013 Barra contributed tremendously to the growth of Google’s Android team. However, in 2013 Barra left Google and joined Chinese tech giant Xiaomi as its vice president. Including Barra in its senior management was a very proud feeling for Xiaomi, as he had an experience of working with one of the best tech […]
