Twelve Billion Won to be Spent to Develop Mobile Augmented Reality Technology

Via  http://www.koreaittimes.com/story/1406/twelve-billion-won-be-spent-develop-mobile-augmented-reality-technology

“The Korea Culture & Content Agency (KOCCA) has set the development of mobile augmented reality (AR) technology as one of its technology support projects for 2009, and has chosen the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) as its technology partner.

Meanwhile, the KIST’s Imaging Media Research Center has been conducting research on mobile AR-based virtual tour technology since last month. It is poised to finish it by 2012. Under a joint plan with the KOCCA, KIST will develop mobile AR technology in four stages, in which a total of 12 billion won (US$9.65 million) will be injected over the next four years. The KOCCA will invest 8.5 billion won (US$6.83 million) and the KIST about 3.5 billion won (US$2.81 million).

The United States accounts for 34 percent, or 897 cases, of worldwide AR-related patents, followed by Japan which holds 880 such patents. As Korea holds 639 AR patents, more than twice the rights that European nations hold, this country is expected to find plenty of new markets if it concentrates on developing AR technology.”

Augmented reality starfinder “SkyMap” now reality on Android phones

http://www.techcrunch.com/2009/05/12/googles-skymap-a-virtual-viewfinder-for-the-stars/

I remember seeing a demo of something very similar to this about 4 years ago…on a particularly unwieldy tablet PC.  This should be a lot easier on the arms! Application is from Google, a 20% project.

Via TechCrunch, new Android app. called SkyMap

Russian artist “turns the reality around us into ASCII”

WIRED’s blog asks us to “forget Second Life” and turn the real world virtual. That’s just the idea!

They post this interesting goggle-based augmented reality device with 6 modes of psychedellic visual effects (made even more so by the sound effects in this video).

The artists are named as Alexei Shulgin and Arstarkh Chernyshev and the system is called “SUPER-I” which is called “A real virtuality system”. In the mode of earlier Virtual Reality systems it features a publicly viewable screen for the un-goggled. Very cool and if it can “turn the reality around us into ASCII” then it could convert other artists’ views or digital effects as well.

One can imagine cartridges that process different artist realities enhancing the product. As always, send me any more information / links you may have about it!
