Google announces Augmented Reality Microscope platform to aid in cancer detection

Monday, April 16th, 2018

Google announced in a blog post today that it's developed a prototype for a microscope system that uses artificial intelligence to automatically detect anomalies resembling cancerous growths in tissue samples. Google is calling it the Augmented Reality Microscope (ARM) platform, and it's currently capable of identifying breast and prostate cancer, although Google says it will be able to find any other type of cancer once its model is trained for it.

10 very cool augmented reality apps (that aren’t design or shopping tools)

Saturday, March 24th, 2018

Augmented reality is having a moment on Android. Thanks to ARCore, which now works on more than a dozen device models—Google says that's more than 100 million individual devices—we've seen a ton of new applications that insert virtual objects into our real surroundings. A lot of them are shopping and interior design apps, which makes sense—AR's ability to make items appear in your home is a great way to see what a couch looks like in your living room without actually lugging it in there.

Galaxy S9 and S9+ to get ARCore support in the next few weeks

Thursday, March 22nd, 2018

ARCore first came onto the scene in August of last year with support for the Pixel and Galaxy S8, with more phones added late last month to the official compatibility list. The Galaxy S9 and S9+, which were announced shortly after that latest update, aren't on that list yet. That'll change "in the coming weeks," though.

According to the ARCore Device Support Requests thread on GitHub, "Support for the S9 and S9+ will be added in the next release, which should be released in the coming weeks." It's a generic estimate, but at least it shows that progress is being made on the effort.

Over 85 Android apps and games have added augmented reality elements thanks to ARCore

Wednesday, March 21st, 2018

After releasing the ARCore SDK last year and testing it on the Pixel 2 phones, Google made the announcement official at MWC this year and expanded support for the first-gen Pixels, Galaxy S7/S7 Edge/S8/S8+, LG V30/V30+, ASUS Zenfone AR, and OnePlus 5, with more devices to be added in the future. Following that, we knew that the apps would start coming in but the past few days have seen several trickle down: Google's Just A Line experiment, eBay's shipping box size chooser, and IKEA's furniture visualizer, were just a few.

Doodle in the air with Google’s new AR experiment, Just a Line [APK Download]

Monday, March 19th, 2018

 

Google's turned another one of its Experiments into a standalone app: augmented reality doodling tool Just a Line hit the Play Store today. Based on Jonas Jongejan's ARCore Drawing experiment, the app lets you make augmented reality drawings in 3D space around you, and frankly, it's pretty stinkin' neat.

  

There's really not a whole lot to the app: drawing with your finger on your phone's screen, you're able to scrawl white lines in the air that realistically stay in place as you move around them—it's sort of like the Pixel's AR stickers with just a dash of Tilt Brush.

Monday, March 19th, 2018

More app developers are getting into augmented reality on Android now that Tango is a thing of the past. Google's official AR platform of the future is ARCore, which will work on most devices. Even eBay is getting into AR with its latest Android app update. Sellers can now use AR to choose the right box size.

The latest version rolled out earlier this month, but eBay didn't do much to make the new AR features known.

The Imagination Factory introduces SwimAR, a HUD for swimming goggles

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

Some of you may not know this about me, but I spent most of my childhood as a competitive swimmer. To this day, I am convinced it is one of the best workouts you can possibly do — it not only requires muscular and cardiovascular strength, but an acute awareness of your body and mental focus. So along comes The Imagination Factory to assist with the latter part with SwimAR, a heads-up display for swimming goggles.

Bose AR audio-only augmented reality platform asks, ‘Who needs screens?’

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

Augmented reality can make for some fantastically impressive tech demos, and the rise of systems like Google's ARCore has started to bring AR to the masses, not requiring hardware any more advanced than the phone you already have. While phone-based AR feels like it has the potential to be quite popular, wearable AR devices have proven to be a tougher sell, and the public backlash against early efforts like Google Glass is still hard to forget.

Amazon adds AR view to help you see products in your environment before you buy them

Tuesday, February 27th, 2018

Visualizing furniture and products before buying them is one of the most reasonable uses of AR technology. Lots of buyers have difficulty imagining how things would fit in their home; when we were furnishing our apartment, we used tape on the floor to denote the limits of most things we had our eyes on before going back to purchase them because we needed to see how they'd fit. Augmented Reality makes this easier and better by putting the object there in front of you, and several retailers have used the technology before in their apps.
