Download junaio 3.6. It looks like Vader.
First up in this week’s edition of FTW we have yet another junaio-based Art installation, this time by developer Steve Bull for the Bogliasco Foundation in Italy. The “inVisible Presence” experience will include 9 channels with around 45 different points of interests, including virtual “busts” that users can click to listen to biographical information about the featured person. From Steve’s blog:
“inVisible Presence – Augmented Reality Busts, the installation by Steve Bull, explores the unusual intersection between sculpture in public places and the most modern digital technologies. It will guide the public down the garden path to stop in search of inVisible Presence. These presences will be seen only on the screens of the visitors’ smart phones or iPads, showing the busts of academics, artists, writers, novelists, choreographers and professors, composers and architects from all over the world. These busts will talk to the visitors about their projects at the Study Center. While literally geo-localized, these traces or presences are superimposed on the reality of the garden, memorializing research work or artistic endeavour that occurred at the Villa dei Pini.”
If you have the good fortune to be in the beautiful coastal city of Bogliasco April 14-22, this is a must-see. Along with, you know, Italy.
In other news we are very proud to welcome another Certified Developer to our midst, Digital Delta Design from Buffalo, NY. DDD is already quite proficient with junaio, having developed 4 location-based channels and 3 channels that utilize junaio’s award winning tracking technology to attach digital information to images and surfaces. Says Jim Dailey of DDD:
“We are excited about this opportunity with junaio, and appreciate being recognized as Certified Developers. It’s clear that the manner in which consumers will interact with content and their surroundings is changing due to the introduction and further development of AR. Our relationship with junaio will foster our ability to provide our clients cutting edge methods to embrace their traditional marketing materials and take them to a whole new level. “
We wholeheartedly agree, Jim.
