Watch Cute Monster Drawings Get Drawn Into Real Life

Video: Augmented reality artist Marty Cooper is back with his always fun Aug(de)mented Reality series that splices imaginative little drawings of cute monsters into real life. They’re always so clever and up to no good, popping out of places you’d least expect them to and doing things with so much pizzazz that you’d wish they were almost real (not really, but almost)!


What It's Like To Wear Bionic Earbuds

If you love live music, the new Here Active Listening System is an impossibly nerdy idea that might change the way you experience your favourite hobby. I’ve been using one of the first production versions of the sound-altering tech for a few days, and I’m excited about the potential for a world in which I might never hear anything except for exactly what I want to — exactly the way I want to.


Microsoft's Latest HoloLens Is Here, And It's Amazing

The HoloLens headset from Microsoft is the world’s first untethered wearable that generates holograms before your eyes. It’s been nearly a year since we first strapped a prototype to our faces, and as the tech goliath prepares to unleash a first batch of units to developers in the coming months, I was invited to check out just how far the technology has come. Holograms are here people — and they’re going to change your life.


Patent Suggests the New Version of Google Glass Will Be Ugly and Creepy (Again)

Google’s been granted a patent for what looks like the follow-up to Glass, its original and widely-ridiculed headpiece. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has approved the company’s 2012 patent submission, which comprises a wiggly heads-up-display that appears to wrap around one side of the user’s head.



Project X Lets You Fight Hololens Aliens In Your Living Room, And It's Freaking Unreal

Well, this is it. The day all my dreams came true. I started out playing 2D side-scrollers in mall arcades in the 1980s, but I’ll soon be able to fight holographic robots bursting through my living room walls using my handheld blaster that’s a wearable hologram. WTF.


Disney Has Invented 3D Colouring Books

With its Colour Alive line, Crayola was the first company to merge colouring books and apps so kids could bring their on-page creations to life. But Disney Research is taking that idea one step further by letting kids see a colouring book character move in 3D while they’re still colouring it.


Put A HoloLens In The Classroom And I'll Happily Go Back To School

Though they’re often being lumped together, Microsoft’s HoloLens headset is a very different beast to the Oculus Rift. Whereas the Rift wants to transport you to a whole other virtual reality world, Microsoft’s augmented reality driven HoloLens wants to invade your real world. And that gives it a far wider potential for educational application.


Microsoft's Latest Quest Into Digital Worlds May One Day Help Robots See

Microsoft really wants to blur the line between the digital and real worlds. While HoloLens can stick humans in a bizarro universe filled with holograms and Minecraft blocks, a new program could eventually help robots and self-driving cars better “see” their surroundings.


Microsoft's HoloLens Has A Huge Flaw That Won't Be Solved By Launch

Microsoft’s Kudo Tsunoda is one of the men in charge of HoloLens, a headset that lets you see virtual objects as if they existed in the real world. At E3 2015, he told me a bit about what we can expect from Microsoft’s holographic computer at launch — and admitted that one key issue will still need some ironing out.
