  • The Artvertiser – an Augmented Reality project

    Or as I like to call it, the anti-advertiser for ad-packed spaces. This is a software platform that replaces ads with art in real time, although they consider what they do improving reality, it is still augmented reality. Although first started in 2008 this company continues to grow as does the market for augmented reality, this is a fairly new, exciting way of advertising. A bit glitchy in the video but will only get better with time! Currently an app for Android, have to check out Sydney and see if there’s any art live. M. x

  • on{x} – automate your life.

    This is a great new developer’s platform that has just been released for anyone with an Android. Basically, you can program your own phone to answer your specific needs using ‘rules’ which are kind of like user-friendly Javascript coding, and can then share the ‘rules’ as a ‘recipe’ on the on{x} forum to see how others are programming their androids in different ways. Take a look at the video – such a great concept. [youtube] To me, this is the main reason why Android will overtake iPhones – it all comes down to personalisation, and with platforms like o{x} […]
