Who’d Have Thought, I’m Still A Religious Person

Sunday, August 28th, 2011

Ramblings About Augmented Reality

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

As you all know, one of my main passions is decoding images into 3D environments.  I love researching machine vision and augmented reality.  Just check out how cool this stuff is.  In this next video, a guy creates a laser gun and points it at objects in his room.  Using AR, he creates this virtual […]
