I’ve got a ramp in my bag…

Last week MB’s Panja Gobel spoke at The Hospital Club in Covent Garden on the emergent technology, augmented reality. Organised by Hospital member, Tom Le Bree, the “And Then the World Presents” evening offered a range of differing perspectives on AR and its practical applications. First to speak was Evan Grant from “interactive arts and technology collective” Seeper. Seeper have produced stunning interactive experiences for a range of clients, as well as creating a fully-working Bond touch screen, exhibiting at Tent London for London Digital Week, and even speaking at TED. Evan clearly relishes the challenge of new technology and new ways to connect with people and it was great to hear him speak. Next up was Panja who took the audience on a whirlwind crash course on AR – showing its journey from clunky “brain machines” to incredible real time shape recognition. Regular readers of the MB Blog will already be aware of Panja’s passion for, and unique perspective on, new technology and her talk was no exception. Concluding the evening was Myles Peyton from Total Immersion who conjured child-like delight by showing Total Immersion’s many AR branded projects in action. Best loved was the AR car which could be remote controlled – hence the ‘ramp” quote in the title. A very enjoyable evening.
