Notable Quotes

AUGMENTED REALITY

At 1:24:24 Alex tells developers how to make augmented reality "stick" instead of "floating". It sounded like he said "seagraph, 2d realtime tracking" it means that all the stuff you're posting there will stick. There won't be any floaty, there won't be anything else. It's all open technology and it hasn't made to these apps yet.

I think he was talking about: Changing the Way Computers See Humans and the Way Humans see Motion Capture http://www.siggraph.org/publications/newsletter/volume/201cchanging-the-way-computers-see-humans-and-the-way-humans-see-motion-capture201d
