This isn’t quite on the same level as Google’s Project Glass experiment, but Google today launched a set of five physical installations housed in London’s Science Museum. These installations, which users anywhere can control remotely, are meant to “inspire people around the world by showcasing the making that the Internet makes possible.” While Google doesn’t mention this explicitly in its post, chances are that the launch of this exhibition was timed to coincide with the Olympics in London.
Autonomy, a leading enterprise infrastructure company has a new technology that can change the way we look at and interact with physical objects. Called Aurasmsa, it works with smart phone and tablets to, in real time, turn static images or even objects into videos, games and interactive experiences. Aim your phone at a building and see a video about that building. Aim it at a picture in a newspaper and launch an interactive experience.
Imagine what this could do for the retail and media world.
