Virtual nose and simulator sickness

Besides all the hightech opportunities of Augmented Vision people tend to forget about the fact the visual erception is a bodily experience, it’s not something we can completely virtualize: David Matthew Whittinghill, Bradley Ziegler, James Moore, and Tristan Case have found that a virtual nose may reduce simulatir sickness in virtual…

Augmented Reality Aerial Navigation

So langsam kommen die ersten consumer-Anwendungen auf den Markt, bei denen Visio und Visualisierung verschmelzen. Navigation ist dabei bisher eins der wichtigsten Entwicklungsfelder. „Aero Glass“ ist eine Augmented Vision Awendung für Piloten. Was im Militärischen Bereich mit Millionenbeträgen mit eher mäßigem Erfolg entwickelt wurde, macht nun Endnutzer-Technologie wie  Epson Moverio…

Head mounted display for endoscopic image display

This year, a number of medical device manufacturers have released 3D-compatible endoscopes for laparoscopic surgery, whereby an endoscope is inserted through multiple keyhole incisions in a patient’s abdomen, allowing the surgeon to confirm video images displayed on a monitor in real time. In conventional laparoscopic procedures, surgeons generally have to…

Augmented Intervention Assistant

In contrast to the consumer market, the development for head-mounted-display applications for medical use is slowly reaching an acceptable level of technical practicability. We will probably see the first devices in operating theatres soon, although there are still many problems to overcome such as usability, implementation in the workflow, clinical…

Counter Face Recognition

Even though I dont think this prototype will make it to the factory, it seems to be a better work-around than sunglasses and fake moustaches. I like that its an optical approach and not some kind of software-based firewall approach.

Oculus Rift

Oculus Rift is a virtual reality headset concept for video games. It hit 1,5 million dollars at kickstarter in the first week! Nevertheless: Back it up! I think gaming is currently the motor of making Augmented Vision a consumer experience. Research and development on the merge of virtual and reality…
