We recently had a great presentation from Matt Browning of Perfect Prototype, a Philadelphia-based interactive exhibit design studio. He showed us some popular instances of Augmented Reality technology (think the virtual first-down line in a televised football game). He then went on to show us some of his recent projects, including an interactive heart and an interactive brain, both for science museums.
The audience of Animators, Graphic, Industrial, and Interactive Designers were very enthusiastic, and you could see the wheels turning about possible collaborations and applications. Who knows what our students will come up with?
