Augmented Reality

I know this has been around a while, and it has been blooged about alot.  But, with Geisha Tokyo Entertainment's release of the interactive maid アリス in October, It got me looking at all the uses and possibilities for this technology.  

If you want to have some fun download  the ARToolkit by HIT
 Lab at the University of Washington.  The ARToolkit gives you som basic examples you can try for yourself without having to program anything.  All you need is a webcam.  It contains everything you need to develop your own applications as well.

Now if only they can perfect holographic imagery, things could get very interesting. Although old now, below is a prime example of what this technology can do.


...and アリス:
