VIDEO: Augmented Reality Thursday - May 5th

Chris Cameron May 6, 2011

Yesterday was many things.

In the Netherlands it was Liberation Day - the celebration of the day which ended the Nazi occupation of Holland near the end of World War II - and in U.S. it was Cinco de Mayo (5th of May), which celebrates Mexican/American culture. But most importantly, yesterday was Thursday (which means today it is Friday - sorry, couldn’t resist), but not just any Thursday. Augmented Reality Thursday.

On the first Thursday of each month, we invite AR enthusiasts to gather at Layar HQ for lively discussions fueled by snack foods and Heineken. This month we had Fred van Rijswijk from C2K - a Layar Partner Network member - to talk about the latest iteration of the popular Layar-based multiplayer game Conquar.

If you couldn’t make it out last night, have no fear, just check out the video below from last night’s ART!

Maarten Lens-FitzGerald January 23, 2011

This Sunday and Monday (January 23rd and 24th) co-founder Maarten Lens-FitzGerald will be at the DLD Conference in Munich, Germany. The DLD Conference is a “Euro” TED with an amazing line up of speakers. The theme is this year is “Update Your Reality Now”.

Monday Morning at 10.15 there will be an Augmented Reality panel with Maarten representing Layar as well as Laurent Gil (Viewdle), Peter Meier (Metaio) and Stanley Yang (NeuroSky). Moderation will be done by David Rowan from WIRED Magazine. AR browsers and platforms, brainwave interpretation and facial recognition - that’s a great recipe for a good content cocktail.

Follow the live stream here. Maarten will be tweeting here.
