Augmented reality m-learning concept

30 11 2006

Who do I go and see if I’ve got an idea for a mobile device? ūüôā

Bringing together the ideas of augmented reality, wearable technology, and mobile learning, here’s a concept for an m-learning device that allows the learner to “see” and interact with learning opportunities and activities in real-time and in their immediate physical context, thanks to a curved, flexible, transparent, wearable LCD screen that can be stowed over-the-head when not in use.

The outside of the visor is a touch screen, enabling direct interaction with the visor without removing it or having to blindly grope for buttons on one’s ears. Using image recognition as well as a built-in camera, GPS and compass, the unit can determine appropriate learning materials, according to the user’s preferences.

Update: Textually.org recently referred to an article from The Economist, with some similar predictions for the future, including an eerily similar vision of where mobile technology, augmented reality, and wearable technology could intersect:

[…] Bloggen Mobile Learning visar p√• en framtid som inte ser alltf√∂r avl√§gsen ut. Att med tunna lcd-sk√§rmar och bluetoth headset kunna uppleva information och verkligheten i en samtidighet som skulle vara en revolution f√∂r l√§randet. T√§nk att arkitekter kunde g√• omkring p√• byggplatsen och samtidigt ha tillg√•ng till ritningar och information om byggmaterial. M√∂jligheterna √§r o√§ndliga om vi kombinerar b√§rbarteknologi med kreativitet. […]
