Day 4: Work in Progress: Tinmith

Wayne Piekarski, from the University of South Australia, gave a really interesting talk on his augmented reality wearable computer, which allows you to visualize non existent structures in conjunction to existing ones.

It's portable, but ok, it's not very light yet :-)


Wayne's given us a description of the hardware involved, and the problems with building such a system, but he's gotten quite far over the 3 years he's spent on the project.

While he talked way faster than any mortal could possibly take notes, I was able to picture all his slides (there are many) and you can also look at his paper in PDF format

BTW, if you wondered Tinmith stands for "This is Not Map In The Hat" :-)
