Mysteryland 2010: the biggest dance event with augmented reality

August 27, 2010

So today we went over to Mysteryland to prepaire and test the Mysteryland layar. It’s mighty impressive what ID&T has done with the area. From what we’ve seen we can already say that this year will be the best EVER!!!! Never mind if there’s a little rain because once you’ve hit the Mysteryland grounds you’ll forget all about that! There is so much to see and do… it’s truely awesome… but unfortunately we can’t show you the pictures… sorry that’s what we agreed with ID&T.

What we CAN show you are the first snapshots of the Mysteryland Layar! Mysteryland will add a whole new dimension tomorrow. Using the Layar augmented reality browser, you will be able to explore the huge terrain through the camera of your Android- or iPhone and find out which of the 150 dj’s is performing on the 16 stages and what is the fastest way to get there. When zooming in on a stage you will be able to learn more about the dj that is on stage, what he is playing and get downloads via Dance Tunes. Read the rest of this entry ?

First impressions: The Stedelijk Museum art collection in augmented reality.

August 22, 2010

Yesterday we went over to the Lowlands festival to meet with Hein Wils from Stedelijk Museum and Sander Veenhof from SNDRV. Both were part of the team that created the Stedelijk Museum art collection in AR with us. FYI. this is NOT the official case presentation but merely an impression of what we experienced at the scene.

The Stedelijk Museum had a fantastic desk set up where people could go to and choose one of the 175+ Artworks from famous artists like Picasso, Warhol or Appel. (no not that one… I mean Karel Appel) And so we also did… It’s always nice to see your own augmented reality projects actually being used.
