Snow Globe and the Adjacent Reality Tracker

I’ll have more detailed posts about the Adjacent Reality Tracker in the future, but here is a preview of some of what you can expect to see at our booth in Fiesta Hall at the Bay Area Maker Faire on May 19th-20th this year.  In the meantime, you can follow Donnie and I working on the thing at GitHub.

  • Just brilliant dude.

  • Brilliant, the tricky part is the position sensing and processing circuity. This can have vast applications, from space, to artificial human limbs, to robotics. neat indeed. if i was bill gates, I wud send u some funds to help go further on this; it is R&D people who shape the future. God bless u.

  • I love this! I was looking for something to do with the MicroVision projector I bought last year.

    I couldn’t help but think that an iOS port of your software would be perfect. Not only does MicroVision include an iDevice cable with each projector, but the touchscreen and motion/orientation sensors would be a great user interface. And you can’t swing a dead cat without hitting an iPad/Phone/Pod these days.

    Again, great work, and thanks for sharing!

  • I just ordered the pieces for this – can’t wait to mess with it.

    Have you figured out if it is possible to render a movie to play on the globe. I have some Google Earth data sets that I created and then (using the Pro version) made movies out of them. I would like to play them on a globe like this. Any ideas as to how that could be done?

  • see website link – I located a supplier for IR Hot Mirrors: this would allow you to use an IR stylus (think tablet pen) against the surface of the globe and an IR-seeing camera off to the side – make it a ‘periscope’
