The Rise of Simulation Technology

I just read a list of current or upcoming uses of simulation technology, namely virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR). One use applies the technology toward educational pursuits. The list is endless: virtual surgeries, rehearsed or real-time actual; electrical grounding training, mock or hypothetical; train-the-trainer courses, mandated or developed; etc. These ideas give whole […]

Collaborate with Snapchat AR Influencers

I just read that Snapchat plans to commit $750,000 to augmented reality (AR) influencers. This eye-popping payload presents a number of opportunities for storytellers to support their effort. For example, there’s an opportunity to cash in on getting really good at making AR stories. This isn’t as obvious as it sounds. Depending on the story […]

The biggest, more important disadvantage remains its inability to predict a project’s […]

Children will play with toys that, unbeknownst to them, use sensors to rate levels of contamination and then sanitize their hands and faces as appropriate. Mobile devices will overlay real-time virtual patterns onto real-world fields of view […]
