It is getting WARMer again. Come join us for the Winter Augmented Reality meeting 2015 on February 4-5 in Graz. We will have great keynotes from Aaron Quigley and Rob Lindeman and a great skiing trip. http://studierstube.icg.tugraz.at/WARM15/

These guys are really putting Glass up for a test ...
We been playing with Google #Glass since January. Porting the Android version of our texture-less object detector http://www.cs.bris.ac.uk/~damen/MultiObjDetector.htm into it plus other things (more on that soon!). The photo below shows our "Developer setup".
 Glass is a dream come true for anyone who experienced the first serious wave of wearable computers about 15+ years ago. Its feature rich and all embedded featuring computer, display and camera. BUT the question IMO is if we need better hardware or better algorithms?
The problem is that even with minor processing using a simple algorithm like Canny edge detection, #Glass heats up very quickly (hence the fan to cool it down in between tests!), and as it heats so much and frequently its uncomfortable to wear for long periods of time while doing evaluation and it can irritate your eye (hence the mannequin, which we move instead of wearing it!). So clearly better hardware could help eg using an event based camera that only uses small signals and saves energy as +Andrew Davison  and others has been recently showing but the algorithms that go with that also need to be different in order to exploit any new hardware. Has anyone seen or is working on something beyond simple Computer Vision implementations on #Glass? we would love to hear about!

Very nice SLAM implementation
Impressive improvements to the semi-dense SLAM

From the article ... "But despite all our references to failed VR tech of the ’90s, we’ve developed a kind of mass cultural amnesia about the debates that actually took place."
