  1. Learning from Iron Man and the Terminator: Bringing Augmented Reality to Libraries Markus Wust NCSU Libraries TRLN Annual Meeting July 13, 2012

  2. What is Augmented Reality? Common Public Perception: • Terminator • Iron Man • Terminator

  3. What is Augmented Reality? “... a real-time direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment that has been enhanced / augmented by adding virtual computer-generated information to it.” Carmigiani et al., Augmented reality technologies, systems and applications (2011)

  4. Augmented Reality: So What? • We have been augmenting our reality with additional information for a long time…

  5. AR technology has been around for a while, too: Ivan Sutherland's Head-Mounted Display (1968)

  6. So… … why is everybody getting interested in it now?

  7. Answer: iPhone / Android / ...

  8. More processing power Better/larger displays Better sensor technology (location, orientation, tilt, movement) Affordances of New Devices

  9. Some Examples of AR Use

  10. AR in Marketing

  11. AR in Entertainment

  12. Example: Pac-Man

  13. AR in Education New Media Consortium 2010 Horizon Report Augmented reality offers new modes of learning Also included in 2011 Report

  14. Instruction

  15. Digital Collections WolfWalk BeaverTracks PhillyHistory.org

  16. Wayfinding PowerCat (Kansas State University) WolfWalk

  17. We have come a long way...

  18. … but there's still work to do

  19. In-Door Location Detection - GPS does not work in most in-door locations - Possible solutions: • RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) • Barcodes • Image Recognition

  20. Displays Either: • cumbersome and immersive • Or: - small, but only viewport

  21. Possible Solutions - AR Glasses - AR contact lenses
