Augmented Reality

3 posts in this topic

Hi peop,

just wondering if you guys are already fiddling with augmented reality or is it "almost" still a thing of the future ?
I mean, appart from Pokemon Go, some options in my S8 when using the camera, I don't have much experience with augmented reality. (don't count Pokemon Go, I tried it about 2 minutes).

I'd gladly take your suggestions though. I have android (Galaxy S8). I got the 3D helmet for it, it's cool. It's very cool, but that's not augmented reality.

I did try one app last week though, I guess it's augmented reality cause it's using the GPS but not the camera.

In my opinion, and the opinion of many game designers I know as well surprisingly, AR and VR are more likely to find their homes in construction, police, military, medical, etc. fields than they are in video games. Tech wise, I don't think it's still a thing of the future (excluding Sci-Fi level advancements), but I just don't think it's found its best fit yet.

I don't want to be in the game or have the game be in my living room. It's fine where it's at: The TV screen or Computer monitor.

Some people are doing work in VR and AR, but it's not nearly as accessible to the rest of us like DAW stuff is yet. There's a lot of foundation that still needs to be laid in that field before we get around to working in it.
