These videos have been out for a while, but I just came across them recently. Be sure to view the last “Unpacked” version. I really like the midpoint of version 2 which shows new medical visualization technology for collaboratively reviewing patient MRI.
If you weren’t able to make the Federal Consortium of Virtual Worlds conference this year, check out the presentations here. Randy Hindrichs presents his vision of the virtual environment future, Michelle Fox presents DOE’s NTER platform, and Jesse Schell talks about the future of Virtual Characters.
If you’re a New York Giants fan, or just want to see a cool application of augmented reality, then check out this link. Through the magic of AR you can take a picture with a Giant’s Superbowl ring adorning one of your digits. Enjoy!

If you’ve followed my blog, you know of my fascination with DARPA–the futuristic research arm of the US Military. Many of the technologies developed for the military eventually find their way in to civilian life (e.g. the internet and global positioning devices). Many projects seem much more like science fiction than reality. For instance, in [...]
The MIT Technology Review published an article on “enhancing reality in 2010″ including 3D TVs, cameras, and camcorders along with the rise of augmented reality. Read the article here. (Via The Year in Enhancing Reality – Technology Review.)
IBM released this concept piece last week about the uses of 3D visualization and augmented reality in healthcare. One part, in particular, caught my eye. The concept of using an avatar as a visual “front-end” to an EHR. We discussed the need for this exact solution in a meeting about health record displays on the [...]
