Hello everyone, if you missed us at E3 here is a recap of our talk and what we had on display. We are currently working with our partner Google to develop a way for mobile technology to understand space and motion using 3 steps called project Tango. Motion tracking gives the device the ability to understand its position and orientation using custom sensors. Depth sensors allow the device to understand the shape of the space around the device letting the virtual world and real world interact. Area Learning uses visual cues to help the device recognize the world around them, “They can self-correct errors in motion tracking and relocalize in areas they’ve seen before.”(Google) We hope to use this technology in forensics, archaeology, medicine and subterranean real-time mapping.
We also are in the process of creating a way to bring holograms in to everyday use, no longer just the stuff of science fiction. Imagine having a holographic pet or immersing yourself in the Animus anywhere at any time. Holograms can be used for a wide range of things from building complex models to holographic travel. Abstergo Industries and Abstergo Entertainment are building a device that skips over the glasses and goes straight for the eyes by building contact lenses that use holographic technology. We are still in the testing phase and hope to have a prototype ready for public display soon.
