Graphical user interface in the physical world

Computers & Mobile Craft & Design

From the MAKE Flickr pool

Aimino is conducting some very interesting experiments accessing the the real world via conventional computing interfaces. Arduino is employed for physical device control while an additional machine runs PTAM image processing software determines camera position. The above demo alone is entertaining/intriguing the concept seems to have much potential. Unfortunately Edit->Undo in everyday situations still seems unattainable :(

    Dammit, the lenses, Where are the damned HUD contact lenses? (or optical nerve implants, to go a step beyond and, in the way there, fix forever some sight problems).

    I suppose we should get along with the iphones while we wait, but it’s definitely not the same as having the HUD right in your sight.

    Why do people feel the need to put loud and irritating music over the top of every tech video??? Grrrrr!!!

    Apart from that…. It is a very cool concept. Nice.

    I like that position tracking. Keep doing :)
    Could you give me a title of background sound?

      That tracking system(PTAM) is really great.
      If you are interested in it, take a look at their website.

      The title of the music is “Enishi JAPAN”.
      You can find the mp3 here.
