Developer Metaio is aware of a factor or two about augmented actuality, and constructing on the magic of its Audi eKurzinfo app, it is created some prototype software program for Google Glass that straps a automotive’s instruction guide to your face. As an alternative of counting on markers, GPS or level-cloud processing, the Glass app makes use of reference CAD fashions to determine what you are taking a look at and overlay instructions on a 3D aircraft. As helpful as it might be for strolling you thru a washer fluid refill (video after the leap), Metaio has created the app to showcase its up to date AR platform that is meant to work with wearables like Epson’s Moverio and the Vuzix M100, in addition to Mountain View’s monocle. The agency’s Glass app might by no means progress past proof of idea, however these attending Metaio’s annual InsideAR convention in Munich this October can look ahead to a reside demo.

Metaio to Unveil First Palms-Free Automotive Guide on Google Glass, New three-D Monitoring Know-how and optimized wearable augmented actuality platform at InsideAR 2013

Augmented Actuality chief welcomes a wearable future with new know-how & demo

Munich & San Francisco, 17 September 2013: Metaio, world chief in augmented actuality (AR) software program and options, right now proclaims the event of the primary-ever palms-free, marker-much less augmented automotive guide utilizing Google Glass. Metaio will moreover replace and optimize its core know-how and main augmented actuality platform to accommodate the key wearable system suppliers like Epson, Google and Vuzix, all of which can be introduced October 10-eleven in Munich at Metaio’s annual know-how convention, InsideAR.

The arms-free interactive automotive guide prototype developed by Metaio would be the first time that augmented actuality on wearable computing might be proven to be productive and commercially viable.

Metaio R&D developed this new prototype as a proof-of-idea of the capabilities of its AR platform on wearable units. A brand new sort of three-D monitoring and recognition know-how engineered by Metaio makes use of CAD fashions to acknowledge and overlay three-D content material onto the actual world counterpart. Since no markers, GPS or level clouds are required, the steadiness of the augmented actuality expertise will increase dramatically, whereas remaining virtually resistant to variable lighting, glare, place, and different environmental elements that are likely to intrude with imaginative and prescient-based mostly experiences.

See how the know-how works within the video:

Metaio will replace its main augmented actuality platform to incorporate the unimaginable new monitoring know-how introduced within the demo, along with including help for main wearable computing units, together with Epson Moverio, Google Glass and Vuzix M-one hundred. And searching towards a wearable ecosystem, Metaio will improve three-D and a couple of-D visualization to incorporate programmable shaders and different digital camera optimizations that may permit for extra strong monitoring and an general extra real looking consumer expertise.

InsideAR attendees will get the prospect to attempt the demo on Google Glass, together with many different wearable demos that function arms-free augmented actuality. Builders and non-builders alike can find out how they will use the Metaio AR platform to construct subsequent-era wearable apps, with the Metaio SDK, Creator and Cloud providers.

“We’re going past one-off passive viewing experiences,” says Metaio CTO Peter Meier. “Metaio is taking all the required steps to make sure an all the time on, all the time augmented future, and we’re starting that journey in an enormous means at this yr’s InsideAR in Munich.”
