espaco hibrido e realidade aumentada

E continua a fusão de espaço físicos das cidades com mundo virtual, pós Second Life. Post do Networked Performance mostra como a Everyscape apresenta versões virtuais do mundo real criando o que discutimos em outro post como “ecologia híbrida”. Na imagem abaixo vemos a Union Square em São Francisco.

“Everyscape, a startup based in Waltham, MA, is getting in on the rush to create a virtual version of the real world. Although the site will launch this fall under the shadow of mapping giant Google Earth, Everyscape’s cofounders say that users will find the company’s look and feel quite different. “We’re working on a human experience,” CEO Jim Schoonmaker says. “Google has built a superhuman experience.”

Mais sobre “Realidade Aumentada” em outro post do Networked Performance:

“Augmented Reality has been around as a concept for a long time. It has very often been described in images of the future as enhancing the real world with additional layers of digitally created information. As more people are becoming aware of virtual worlds and seeking to build within them they, in general, start with trying to recreate some element of Real Life. This may be representations of themselves as avatars, existing buildings and offices they frequent. real world metaphors such as chairs, tables, presentation screens. This is something I have observed as the willingness to engage with virtual worlds has extended past gamers and early adopters. The representation is focussed on the boundaries of the environment being used and on how to manipulate the building tools to create that vision, crafting for that environment.”
