The Augmented Lecture Feedback System

Another interesting use-case for wearable AR systems like Google Glass comes from a Spanish university that has integrated it into a lecturer system for monitoring classroom participation. Researchers at la Universidad Carlos III de Madrid have developed the Augmented Lecture Feedback System (ALFs), a HUD glasses interface that teachers can wear while giving a lecture. From […]

LiveMap: The Augmented Reality Motorcycle Helmet of the Future?

Over in Russia, a new entry into the ever-growing augmented reality space comes in the form of a special Motorcycle helmet. Designed in Russia, the unique helmet design features a head-mounted display with a full-color, translucent picture projected directly onto the visor. An on-board light sensor adjusts the image brightness and translucency based on the […]

Atheer Labs demonstrates a 3D, virtual-reality headset technology
