Augmented Cinema Helps You “Meet Your Stranger”

Our friend Sander Veenhof is at it again with a promotion for the IFFR International Film Festival Rotterdam. Check it out!

Meet Your Stranger is a DIY ‘film’. You play the starring role in a real life movie! Check in, choose a character and meet your opponent through a secret character in the public space. The scene you play improvising. Use your smartphone as a prompter. This really comes to life with a virtual scene in Augmented Reality.

Unbelievable. A “camera” smaller than a pinpoint captured this image of the Mona Lisa. Speculation about “big brother” future in 3… 2… 1…

Every Single Gadget Could “See” With World’s Tiniest, Simplest Camera
The camera can only see about 20 pixels on a side—check out the image to see how the camera views the Mona Lisa. Despite its limitations, its utility is impressive. It starts with the fact it’s so tiny and has no moving parts, which means it could be integrated almost anywhere in a gadget, and will fit into gadgets of any size. It’s super-cheap, which means it could find elegant and surprising uses in situations you may not expect. And its dim vision powers could actually change the capabilities of almost anything you integrate it into.

New Apple Patent Includes Augmented Reality Displays

"For example, gyroscopes, magnetometers and other motion sensors can provide angular displacements, angular rates and magnetic readings with respect to a reference coordinate frame, and that data can be used by a real-time onboard rendering engine to generate 3D imagery of downtown San Francisco. […] If the user physically moves device, resulting in a change of the video camera view, the information layer and computer-generated imagery can be updated accordingly using the sensor data."
