Project Xenon is exploring the possibilities technology will provide us in the next 10 to 20 years. Our mission is to foresee how we will use new devices with augmented reality and other technologies such as GPS data, biometric data, sound, video and computer graphics. After researching the possibilities for newer technologies, a video will be made to showcase the group’s vision of how we may use the technology of tomorrow.
Based on our research and brainstorming, our visualization involves 4 different pieces of technology:
1. Augmented Reality (AR) Glasses
These are glasses which projects augmented reality information within the lens of the glasses. In a video call, you can see a video of the other party within your glasses.
A videocopter is a unmanned aerial vehicle quadcopter which flies in front of you and also enables telepresence in another room. The stereoscopic camera captures a 3D image for the other party and it includes facial recognition to allow the videocopter to track your movement. This allows a handsfree call without using another handheld device as a front-facing camera. We have designed some specificiations for the videocopter here.
3. Wall Display
A Wall Display is like a regular wall in which its texture can immediately be transformed to a large interactive display, and every pixel of the display is a camera which captures an image of the room.
4. AR Book
An AR Book is just like any ordinary book, but when used with an AR glasses, animated objects from the book can be seen through the glasses.
I was a product designer who designed flying video camera and user experience designer of the AR technology. Created a 3D interface prototype for Augmented Reality glasses. Please watch the video and fill up the form below.
