We Have Extended the Creation Challenge Submission Deadline!

Adriane Goetz September 7, 2011

Big news for all you Creation Challenge participants! After we opened the Challenge for submissions recently, we had such a strong response from developers needing more time to build their Vision concepts that we have decided to extend the submission deadline until September 29!

This means you now have two more weeks to turn your Vision concept into a reality! It also means that if you haven’t entered the Challenge yet, you now have enough time to jump in and get crackin’ on your idea!

You’ll want to use this additional time wisely by taking in all the Layar Vision tips you can through our tutorials and sample code as well as the following new resources we’ve created to help you!

Don’t forget about the Introduction to Layar Vision webinar this Friday; it will be especially helpful for developers who are considering entering the Challenge!

Final Projects From Bruce Sterling’s AR Design Class Cont’d: Harvest

Adriane Goetz September 6, 2011

Throughout the summer, we’ve covered some of the highlights of Bruce Sterling’s Layar-sponsored AR design class at the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California.

As all good things must come to an end, so has this class, but not without some impressive final student projects! Over the next couple of weeks, we’ll be sharing videos of these projects as well as footage from the class presentations with Layar strategist Gene Becker making a guest appearance to offer comments and feedback. You can read all our posts related to the Design Class here.

This next project video is from students Daniel Young, Eugene Seo, Simon Tien and Trevor Freel. Harvest is a concept for a standalone app that uses augmented reality to display custom information for people with allergies and special diets; it is targeted at those with dietary restrictions due to health, ethical or religious reasons.

The team also started building a Harvest layer (still in testing) to locate nearby health food stores that cater to these types of dietary restrictions.

Check out the Harvest team’s impressive video (we’re suckers for motion graphics) for their awesome concept!

Layar Vision Introduction Webinar This Friday!

Adriane Goetz September 5, 2011

Last week we hosted a webinar to help developers with their concepts for the Creation Challenge. We had such a great response from new developers, brands and others who were interested but not yet in the Challenge that we decided to host another webinar for everyone who wants to know more about Layar Vision!

We will be holding our Introduction to Layar Vision webinar this Friday, September 9, at 5pm Amsterdam time (CEST). Both Veteran Layar developers and brand new Layar developers are invited to attend for concept inspiration and use case examples, as are brand managers or others who are considering an augmented reality element within their mobile application.

You don’t have to be part of the Creation Challenge (or even know how to develop a layer) to join the webinar, you just need to be interested. Sign up now!
