Video: Augmented Reality in Education

Augmented Reality – VFX Breakdown from soryn on Vimeo.

A nice (if somewhat slick and artificial) video showcase of how augmented reality could be used in day-to-day educational work. Of course most the stuff shown here is in that odd space where on the one hand the technology is available, but on the others, the available interfaces are too awkward nowadays. Still, a neat little thing. The main point, anyway, is that educational resources could be pimped to a level where you could really transfer a lot of information in a very visual, easy-to-understand way. Much more so than current online learning environment allow. Ah, the futures. Enjoy!


Great video! It is slick, but I think that helps demonstrate the possibilities of AR in a way that’s intriguing and, admittedly, inspiring. After all, the sleek visuals in Minority Report helped fuel researchers’ interest in building more interactive touch screens, now running at MIT.

And coming at AR operations from another angle, here’s people gathering in meatspace to augment their digital rendition of reality. With this project, people went to their streets in costume to stage scenes like parades and marathons for the Google Street View cameras.
