    This is pretty cool! It did take me longer than 5 minutes to replicate, but still only about 30 minutes. It probably would have gone faster if I could read Japanese.

    Perhaps someday there will be an AR version of lazer tag, in which you’ll wear AR goggles to interact with other players on a stage that appears to be a forest, a ship, a castle, etc. It would be like an online game, only in real life.

    Another application might be a GPS system that creates hovering arrows and signs on your windshield as a heads-up display.

    As the twenty-first century progresses, it seems that more and more, the people you pass on the street are in another world. First it was appearing to talk to themselves but they’re actually using bluetooth phones. Now they’ll wear AR spectacles to interact with virtual objects.

    This whole video was somebody programming in some variant of G… Just like Labview.
