Brilliant foresight on Augmented Reality

posted in: Research | 0

Brilliant foresight on Augmented Reality. It often takes artists to articulate the future of science, much better than scientists can. We are now getting to the stage where augmented reality is almost reaching mainstream awareness. The ultimate goal of augmented reality research from the beginning has been wearable/mobile wide area augmented reality. We still have to tackle the challenge of the display, however surely technology developments will get us to micro and embedded displays. Various labs and companies are looking at contact lens based head mounted displays. This video is an insight into the potential future of augmented reality in society. It is futuristic yet at the same time seems patently within reach. It also has some dark insights on how people may really use this technology.

We introduce Huggy Pajama, a system for remote hugging targeted at parent-child communication. Expanding on experimentation and research shared in a previously published paper; in this paper we focus on development breakthroughs regarding the wearable output and independently controlled multiple air-actuated modules found in the mobile wearable jacket subsystem. We include practical data in designing the wearable and mobile version of Huggy Pajama with embedded electronic and pneumatic devices, as well as offer results from a user study, from which we find that in order to deliver a mediated hug of high fidelity, the system needs to be capable of actuating hugs with a wide and differing range of pressure. Finally, we also present results from this study that show an overall positive emotional affect in the use of the new and improved version of the Huggy Pajama system.
