This just came to mind.  A BUG with the camera module attached to an island opposite the screen module so it would act as if you were looking through the BUG.  Add the GPS module so the unit knows where it is on the planet.  All that is missing (to my knowledge) is a module that has a gyroscope to be able to tell orientation (not just accelerometers).

This combination would allow you to look through the BUG and use it as an augmented reality device.

Just a wild and crazy idea… but isn’t that where everything begins anyway??

Spark, how about a slight tweak:  2 screens and 2 outward facing cameras?  Then you’d get stereoscopic vision and could interpolate things in 3D, perhaps.  Sweet idea.

That would be interesting bacause (from what I can tell in vids and pictures) the bug is about the right size to imitate average human eye spacing.  The only problem would be 2 cameras and 2 screens would leave no more islands free for GPS or sensor pack.

This might be getting pricy, but if you had 2, think about this configuration:

One BUG in the configuration with the stereoscopic camera/screen pairs; this BUG would spend it’s CPU cycles on rendering the augmented view, and interpreting the input from the camera.

Another BUG for your pocket/backpack that had the other sweet stuff, like a GPS, fadio, audio unit, 3G, etc.  That device would do all the “talking with the world” and other backend processing.

 

The two BUGs could communicate over Bluetooth (since that’s included in the base BUG and doesn’t need an extra module, right?) over some kind of light protocol.

 

Ahhh, fantasy gear…..the real question would be: what kind of apps would you build for a wearable augmented reality setup like this?

That setup would be the way to go.  It has the advantage of making the module you must hold up to your face smaller.  It’s hard to blend into society holding a cinder block in front of your face.

I’m just brainstorming as to what information would be useful to overlay.

  • Heads up display with overlayed street names.
  • Distance and direction to waypoints/GPS markers (i.e. where I parked my car) overlayed as an arc centered on my location and only showing markers ahead of me (in my field of view)
  • Overlay colour on parking spaces that are available (would need a database of valid parking times/days).  Green would indicate parking permitted.  Red would indicate prohibited times/days.
  • Interface with realtime transit information to show ETA or direction to nearest bus/taxi/streetcar and in the case of taxis, pop up the company phone number.

Just a few ideas.

Yeah I’m in the Boston area and there are a couple of great Android apps (as well as built-in to Google Maps) that can give MBTA schedules for all the trains and buses.  That would be a great one.

Also, what’s that new hipster thing where you sort-of virtually tag a building, and people with smartphones can see your tags when they point their camera at the building?

Also, think about how fun games could be in AR, too.  Back to the hardware, as a prototype, it would look strange, but in production, you could make these semi-cool goggles, perhaps.  Having the heavy-lifting computation in your pocket/backpack is a plus, as you said.

Isn’t it funny how we www.coachfactorystoreec.com/ Coach Factory Store always want what we can’t have? The girl with the round and pert backside wishes that her rear were 5 times smaller. Meanwhile, the girl with the non existent posterior wishes to achieve a larger butt. Well, if the grass is greener on the other side, just water yours! If you’ve got a small behind, you can create the illusion of a larger one with butt enhancing jeans. Here’s how to do it. Look for light weight denim – This material is very stiff and heavy. If you try to stuff a flat butt into denim jeans, it will only create a flatter looking behind. A little stretch goes a long way – Your butt enhancing jeans should additionally contain some stretch. A mixture of 98 percent cotton and 2 percent lycra is best. This combination of lycra and cotton, especially when it’s in a nice tight-weave fabric that’s fitted through the hip and thigh area will help lift your buttocks. Too much lycra and your jeans may start to ripple like a pair of leggings. If there’s not enough cotton content, there won’t be enough structure to hold you up. It’s all in the pockets – The most effective trick for creating the illusion of a bigger butt is to choose jeans with flap pockets. The added bulk of the flap will enhance and add dimension to your tiny tush. True Religion is notoriously famous for their flap pocket designs. You can also try Hudson, Rock & Republic, Frankie B and Paige for addition flap pocket styles. Pocket placement – If you’re not a fan of flap pockets, or if you’ve already bought too many of them, you can also try denim with regular pockets. Be sure to aim for a pair with smaller pockets that sit higher and this will help make your rear look lifted. Cut is also important – Look for jeans with a slight tapering at www.coachfactoryonliness.com/ Coach Factory Online the knee, such as a straight leg or skinny style. This cut will make your bum look a bit larger in comparison to the rest of your body. Great styles to try are True Religion Billy, Julie or Stella, Siwy Harmah or Rose, and Hudson Emily or Paige. How low can you go – Actually, you don’t want to go too low when it comes to the jean rise. The goal is to project more, not less. A pair of low rise denim will only reduce the size of your rear. Instead, opt for a pair with a medium rise. Color me right – Since dark colors minimize, dark denim and indigo will create a slimming effect. You do not want this kind of effect on your barely there behind! Try to find light colored or medium blue denim. Grey is very flattering and will also work. Like a great bra, butt enhancing jeans can also lift and www.coachfactoryoutletusa.com/ Coach Factory Outlet separate what little you have. So it wasn’t in your genes to have a nice, round bottom. Big deal. Be happy with what you’ve got and just improvise!
