VR + Eye Tracking


Spend an evening with some awesome people at ITU in Copenhagen exploring VR + eye tracking. One of the demos was done with Google Glasses and a camera. It was interesting to experience the issues involving calibration of the eye and the ability to control with the eye.

Holographic Reality


The new HoloLens combine virtual and augmented reality with holographics thus creating the foundation for holographic reality. Wow – a wearable holodeck! ;0) Now we can finally immerse ourselfs in a holographic environment. See the Microsoft’s HoloLens Live Demonstration In March 2011 Microsoft were applying for patenting an ‘IMMERSIVE DISPLAY EXPERIENCE‘. I am really interested in who gets to define this new digitally supported reality playground.

Omnipresent experience


Experience a concert where you can jump to various point of views and experience audio and visuals from a spherical perspective. Go here: http://www.hello-again.com/beck360 I like the potential and the hard work that has been put into presenting the various data through icons and visual aids. Great work! 3Dio is the company behind the omni-binaural microphones that are integrated in the three heads on sticks.

ASMR reflextions


I’ve spend some time trying to experience and understand the concept of ASMR. I really see potential in it and love the mediated experience. I’ve had tingling and even momentarily euphoria! It stimulate sensations of actual touch and visual enjoyment. One of my favorite ASMR practitioners is Ally of ASMRrequests. She explains her concern about the experience of being touched in a mediated way through the microphones: http://youtu.be/k-VVYMsBFXM?t=16m39s. I really love this new kind of experience design problem.
