Disney Research on Augmented Reality Demand you Color Within the Lines

Disney Research on Augmented Reality Demand you Color Within the Lines

That good ol’ company Disney is always on the forefront of doing something cool. Earlier this month we spoke about their using Li-Fi (Read Li-Fi article here). Now they’re working with AR for kids who like to color in books. Why, you might ask? Because they’ve figure out how to turn 2D flat colored images and transform them into 3D characters that you can manipulate. So it takes the image of the character in the coloring book and maps the colors applied by the user to a pre-made 3D animation of the character. So a child begins coloring the characters, the character itself comes to life before your very eyes – that is, with the help of an AR app on any given device. Essentially, as the child draws and colors, the Disney character then springs to life in real-time like magic. Disney (jobs at Disney) believes that technologies such as AR could help re-ignite their innate drive at being creative by integrating the technology with coloring books. By providing a bridge between real-world activities and digital enhancements, Disney hopes the mind of child could equally be enhanced in tandem. “[C]hildren spend an increasing amount of time passively consuming content…

Fuse Li-Fi and LED Fabrics together and you get the Future of Media?

What could the Future of Media look like if you fuse Li-Fi and LED Fabrics together?

So if you recall not too long ago I had written about Li-Fi or light fidelity and how it was a game changer. Well it so happens that the inventor Professor Harald Haas has recently presented a TED talk showcasing a prototype example of how his “light internet” would work. I’ll reiterate again what this is, “broadband transmission using the Visible Light Spectrum or VLS. This is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, just like radio waves, is safe, practical to use and multi-functional”. So with standard-off-the-shelf LED’s (light-emitting diode), numerous tests were made and it appears that LED lighting fixtures can transmit wireless data at very competitive high speeds. I definitely recommend that you watch the TED talk here: A commercial product started shipping several months ago as Haas has launched a commercial venture called pureLiFi. The product, Li-Flame, turns standard LED fixtures into wireless Internet access points. Let’s take this idea a little further. You know we’ve also been following wearable tech like Disney’s EM-Sense, but what would happen if the clothes you wore on your body was a Li-Fi hotspot or hub? Well you know that the applications can only be guessed at but researchers at the Korea…

Disney and Carnegie Mellon is redefining Big Data with EM-Sense.

Disney and Carnegie Mellon is redefining Big Data with EM-Sense.

We’ve all grown up hearing and experiencing the “Magic of Disney”, but what does that really mean? Well thanks to their latest magic companies will know everything and we mean everything about you, like what you’re holding in your hands at this very moment. No cameras, drones, or stalkers required, basically just a smartwatch with some cool software. It’s called EM-Sense, developed by scientists at Disney Research and Carnegie Mellon University. So the question you should be asking yourself right now is “What the heck is Disney up to”? It seems like they are getting involved in every possible piece of technology, small, large, simple to super complex. But why? Not too long ago we wrote about their augmented reality coloring tech and their application of Li-Fi. Now they appear to be moving into stranger realms. A research paper was recently presented at a user interface software and technology symposium and it basically explained our bodies conduct electro-magnetic signals and this conduction can be easily measured. It also turns out that objects produce distinctive EM signals as well. By using the body as an antenna and software to filter the signals, EM-Sense has shown it is possible to discriminate reliably…

Li-Fi, LED lights will now Broadcast Ads to your Smartphone, Tablet or TV!

Li-Fi, LED lights will now Broadcast Ads to your Smartphone, Tablet or TV!

Back in 2011 Professor Harald Haas of Edinburgh University asked “What if every light bulb in the world could also transmit data?” It turns out he proceeded to discover the answer for himself. So with standard-off-the-shelf LED’s (light-emitting diode), numerous tests were made and it appears that LED lighting fixtures can transmit wireless data at very competitive high speeds. Haas calls it “Li-Fi”, broadband transmission using the Visible Light Spectrum or VLS. This is part of the electromagnetic spectrum, just like radio waves, is safe, practical to use and multi-functional. This type of broadband could be limitless. NASA has started working with it to develop supplemental communications systems within the International Space Station’s Wi-Fi system, and possibly enhance it with such features as Global Positioning Satellite Routing Systems architecture. According to NASA, Alexander Graham Bell, inventor of the not so famous photophone demonstrated in the 1880s, transmission of speech using modulated sunlight over a distance of several hundred yards. Cool right? But we don’t have to go all outer space to see the near term useful applications of Li-Fi. It could do wonders providing broadband for a company headquarters or simple coffee shop. Anywhere LED lights are could be designed…
