SANTA CLARA, Calif. — The future is closer than you think, and it’s currently on display in this Northern California suburb.
More than 3,000 attendees and 100 exhibitors on Tuesday packed the latest edition of the Augmented World Expo, a virtual-world extravaganza that has grown ten-fold since its modest debut six years ago.
For folks in my generation—those born in the late 70s or early 80s—the definition of “virtual reality” is informed by decades of popular entertainment and includes at least a few strong Lawnmower Manimages. Virtual reality, as it’s been sold to us by the combined forces of Hollywood and consumer electronics companies, is the experience one gets when one straps on a head-mounted display and slips into a computer-created world.
In the latest “OMG, I want one!” news, startup Magic Leap on Thursday teased its advanced augmented reality tech.

WE HAVE A habit of filling new technologies with old ideas. Television borrowed from vaudeville in its early days. Personal computers were built around familiar pre-digital concepts like inboxes, file folders, and desktops. So before coming technologies like augmented and virtual reality give us entirely new worlds to explore, we can expect them to extend and expand the one we already know. This demo, in which a standard desktop computer is reimagined as a three-dimensional workstation of the future, offers a glimpse of what that might look like.
The annual Electronic Entertainment Expo is the top venue for companies to announce new video games, but the event’s big news this year is how mobile devices and virtual reality will reshape those digital fantasies.
Filmmakers are using virtual reality to make the problems of the developing world seem more … real.
The scare won’t be over when the sixth and final “Paranormal Activity” movie hits theaters this fall: Come May 2016, horror fans will be able to gain a whole new perspective on the horror series with a video game that will give them the illusion of being amongst the haunted, thanks to virtual reality (VR) technology.
HoloLens project head Alex Kipman serves up an eye-popping showcase of Redmond’s augmented reality tech.
Several years ago, Microsoft released a video called “Productivity Future Vision (2011),” which showed a business traveler navigating a city overlaid with useful information and holographic media presenting itself on any glassy, flat surface available—car windows, buildings, even credit card-sized mini-devices.

Michael Jackson may have invented the moonwalk, and he certainly inaugurated his signature strut as a hologram — and the MJ hologram was certainly the talk of the 2014 Billboard Music Awards. But the King of Pop was not the first artist to perform 2D on a 3D stage. From Tupac’s 2012 Coachella resurrection to M.I.A. and Janelle Monae’s bicoastal duet last month, here’s five other awesome holograms that preceded Jackson’s return to (virtual) form.
The ‘holographic principle,’ the idea that a universe with gravity can be described by a quantum field theory in fewer dimensions, has been used for years as a mathematical tool in strange curved spaces. New results suggest that the holographic principle also holds in flat spaces. Our own universe could in fact be two dimensional and only appear three dimensional — just like a hologram.

Having presided briefly over Fort Greene Park in Brooklyn on Monday morning atop a column, a 100-pound bust of Edward J. Snowden was shrouded by parks workers, removed and stashed in a city storage facility somewhere.
Since “Help me, Obi Wan, you’re my only hope” hit the big screens in 1977’s “Star Wars,” we’ve been dreaming of a full-3D holographic display. Mastering the technology isn’t easy, though. We’ve seen multiple attempts that approximate a 3D display, like a 2D image visible from all directions, but the tech world wasn’t quite up to the challenge of true 3D yet.More information: http://www.cnet.com/news/graphene-produces-a-working-3d-holographic-display/

TAIWAN: Leading Taiwanese manufacturer Chiayo has been honoured again with a Taiwan Excellence Award for its DCT-511/DCR-511 2.4G digital two-way tour-guide system. The accolade marks the 11th time that Chiayo has won the award, which is judged equally across five key criteria: R&D, design, product quality, marketing, and the fact that the winning product is made in Taiwan. Crucially, each entry is evaluated for the innovation that it represents.
Disability charity ASA asbl has launched Belgium’s first audio description services for sports events. The charity uses Sennheiser’s Tourguide system to narrate soccer matches for visually impaired fans.
Tour guide systems (TGSs) were originally developed for factory and museum tours, and consist of a microphone and headset receivers. The museum guide speaks into the microphone and listeners hear everything via their headsets, meaning that they are free to move around and the speaker has no reason to disturb other visitors by shouting. The appeal of this solution is clear: only those who wish to listen have to, and anyone wanting to hear can do so (at a volume that they choose).
