"The ‘analog dollars to digital dimes’ problem doesn’t actually seem to be a problem. It seems to be a feature of reality. Digital revenue per head is not replacing lost print revenue and, barring
some astonishment in the advertising market, it never will."

Glasses that whisper in your ear the mood of the person with whom you're speaking and a jerk-o-meter you wear around your neck that tells you when you're being a jerk. Social devices.

Android augmented reality app that does facial recognition and then hovers icons for that person's profiles on various websites.

Video of an artist's conception of our future augmented reality. I like the addition of the video artifacts and the slightly out of sync overlay. I take issue with the sort of video artifacts
and the 'level of advertising'. Maybe they had the advertising supported AR goggles...

"Unwittingly, he trained a dolphin to kill the President of the United States." It sounds like a sentence constructed one word at a time by different people

"Augmented Reality for Maintenance and Repair (ARMAR) explores the use of augmented reality to aid in the execution of procedural tasks in the maintenance and repair domain." Giant goggles hooked up
to a G1 give 3D overlays over the mechanics view to point them to and help with the current task.

"I can conceive of no reality in which the designer behind Fig. 2 of Sony's newly patented emotion-detecting system didn't understand what he'd just created, especially as they
perfectly distilled What TV Comedy Looks Like."

"Ten times smaller than barcodes, Bokodes’ low-cost optical design can be read from as far as 4 meters away, much farther than barcodes, by taking an out-of-focus photo with any off-the-shelf
camera." Love for stuff like this to catch on, however compared to QR codes, these are much more difficult to produce than barcodes in that you can't just print them out and they require changes
to the photography technique (must be out of focus) rather than just analyzing any photograph of a barcode. They seem to be solving slightly different problems.

"My interactive media project this semester is about the augmentation of the classic communication medium business card... what came to my mind pretty quickly was Augmented Reality." Ever since I saw
those AR things you print out I've wished they were based completely off of QR codes that would tell the client app where to download the 3D scene to project.

"The Artvertiser is an urban, hand-held, augmented-reality project exploring on-site substitution of advertising content for the purposes of exhibiting art." There's some videos on the site of their
prototype software. I've got a similar idea I want to try with my G1.

Netflix lets you watch a subset of their movies online via their website and a subset of those movies are available to watch on the Xbox 360's Netflix app. so its not always easy to find movies to
watch on Xbox 360. Yet, I regularly see my Xbox friends using the Netflix app and its a shame they didn't make an easy way to share movie recommendations with your friends. Instead we must share
movie recommendations the old fashioned way. Here's the movies I've found and enjoyed on my 360.
You don't have to be a stoner to enjoy this humorous and dramatic satire featuring a widow trying to raise her children and deal pot in suburbia.
Avatar The Last Airbender
An American animated series that's an amalgamation of various Asian art, history, religion, etc. that maintains a great story line.
If you enjoyed Paranoia Agent you'll enjoy this movie in the same animation style and by the same director and
writer, Satoshi Kon. Its like a feature length version of a Paranoia Agent episode in which a dream machine lets outsiders view one's dreams but eventually leads to blurring the dreams and
Grindhouse Planet Terror
I didn't see either of the Grindhouse movies when they first came out, but of the two, Planet Terror is the more humorous and exciting gore filled parody.
A refreshing romantic comedy that still has a few of the over played tropes but is easy to enjoy despite that.
The King of Kong
A hilarious documentary on the struggle between the reigning champ hot-sauce salesman and the underdog Washington state high school science teacher to obtain the Donkey Kong world record high
score. After watching, checkout this interview with the creators of the movie and the
I've mentioned Primer before, but I put it on here
again because its really good and you still haven't seen it, have you?
