Bad Piggies has just been released, I know. But here's a more interesting take on the Angry Birds franchise. An Iranian company called PendAR has created a 3D version of Angry Birds that brings the game to life through augmented reality (AR).

GeoCam: AR-assisted camera for capturing photos with geo info

by: Carl ParkerAugust 7, 2012

Most of the time we find ourselves installing different camera apps for different occasions and situations. It may be a camera app for capturing photos while on the go or a camera that takes beautiful pictures with different effects and features.

Android app developers are producing different camera apps for virtually any need. They develop applications with different features and functions that anyone could not imagine possible and go beyond limitations just to provide a better and more credible app for smartphone and tablet owners.

This is why Wazar developed an app that smartphone and tablet owners can enjoy outdoors. GeoCam is one of the [...]

Possible Google Glass details and specs emerge

by: Bams SadewoAugust 1, 2012

From sweet baby story to how cool/scary the future can be, Google Glass has given us geeks – and apparently Google’s CEO himself – things to be excited about. Lucky folks who attended Google I/O 2012 and were given the chance to pre-order the Google Glass Explorer Edition for the princely sum of $1,500 know that the device can take pictures and stream video, but it’s still not clear what else they can look forward to when they open the package come 2013.

Here’s the latest scoop on Google Glass, as shared by a developer that was invited to a recent Google Glass Explorer Hangout session – we’re talking about possible specs and features [...]

Sight – Amazing video showing a potential future of augmented reality

by: SamJuly 27, 2012

A wonderful video has been created to exhibit a potential future of visually augmented reality. Perhaps an eventual evolution of existing projects such as Google Glass.

This exceptional short film lets you see through the eyes of a ‘Sight’ user. ‘Sight’ is a fictional electronic contact lens system that utilizes Heads-Up-Displays and alters your perception of an environment. Not only is an incredible feat of special effects, but it brings to life so many ideas for augmented reality you have surely thought of these past few months.

Here is the original video on Vimeo, in full HD for your enjoyment. Let us know your thoughts, as [...]

Best augmented reality (AR) apps for Android

by: Alvin YbañezJune 12, 2012

Augmented reality (AR) is a view of a real and physical image with some of its elements modified by computer generated effects, resulting in an enhanced perception of the real-time image. A perfect sample of augmented reality is the virtual score board while watching your basketball game.

Google’s Project Glass is said to introduce augmented reality to its users. By just using the glasses, you can see your Facebook status, Twitter updates, maps, and a lot more running in the background of your physical environment.

Augmented reality has also been integrated in apps on your Android device. By using your phone’s GPS, camera, and other sensors, you can [...]

Best augmented reality (AR) games for Android

by: Paul NuñalJune 11, 2012

Augment Reality (AR) became a realization way back in the 70’s, when Morton Heilig created the Sensorama, a device that can render 3D images, sound, wind, as well as aromas, to create a virtual reality for the user.

Fast forward to the present age–augmented reality is now a possible feat and almost anyone can enjoy the thrill and excitement just by having an Android smartphone.  Have you ever wished that you could experience augmented reality? Here are some of the best augmented reality games that you can experience firsthand on your smartphone.

Meet your own personal Android-controlled UAV: the Parrot AR Drone 2.0

by: Mike AndriciApril 27, 2012

Our regular readers know that we recently reported that the army might soon start controlling UAVs using modified Android smartphones. If you have any doubts that it could be done, let me show you what a regular civilian can do with around just $330. You won’t be able to actually bomb you neighbor’s house (unfortunately), but it does help to prove the versatility of smartphones these days.

Named the Parrot AR.Drone 2.0, this “flying thingy” is the only quadrocopter that you can control with your smartphone or tablet, so there’s that. But what makes the AR Drone 2.0 even cooler is the AR part in its name: the augmented reality feature that lets you play games by [...]

Google Glasses are closer to reality than ever [Video!]

by: SamApril 4, 2012

Google have released a fabulous video to get us pumped up and excited for Project Glass: Google’s augmented reality glasses. To be honest, it’s worked on me. I want a pair of these right now!

Augmented reality is the concept of altering or overlaying what we see. If these glasses are one day released to the public, we could all be comfortably reading the news as we walk to work, or watching a video without having to tilt our heads down. It’s an amazing concept, and one that Google hope to formally demonstrate by the end of the year.

As well as the video, I have included a list of the features portrayed within it, as well as my speculation on [...]

The future is now: Epson releases Moverio BT-100 the world’s first wearable Android augmented reality display

by: Ankit BanerjeeMarch 29, 2012

Let’s be serious – we have only recently begun considering the fact that our glasses could also be our primary communication device, ala Google Glasses. Good luck trying to explain that to someone over 65. But in all reality, augmented reality technologies are set to take off in a big way over the next 10 years. Imagine waking up, throwing on a pair of glasses, grabbing the coffee, sitting down, lighting up a smoke, and your news just starts flowing in without the need for any external, physical input. While we still have a ways to go in terms of machine learned intelligence that can respond to your every whim, and gesture technologies still need to be improved, [...]

Marvel reveals augmented reality app, dubs it ‘Marvel AR’

by: Mike AndriciMarch 13, 2012

Marvel comic books are scheduled to make their complete appearance on mobile devices in June 2012, when Marvel will start offering those who purchase any super hero comic book (priced at $3.99) an exact digital-copy of the same book, available on both Android and iOS devices. Slightly late to the tablet show, Marvel has plans for a major impact (they call it the Marvel ReEvolution), with Marvel execs recently announcing that they will soon release an augmented reality app called Marvel AR. The (highly interesting) app was announced a couple of days back, at South by Southwest Interactive, the same event in Austin, Texas where Instagram for Android and Angry Birds Space were [...]
