360 VR - AR

While there is no doubt that we live in a real world, technology companies such as Google or Facebook want to take us into completely new worlds.

What do these concepts really mean and why are they so relevant for our smartphones?

 


What is the difference between Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR)?

Augmented Reality: prominent examples include head-up displays, which display information in the user’s field of vision, or applications that complement the image of objects on the smartphone camera.

Virtual Reality (virtual reality): the user’s field of vision is completely covered and the displays are responsible for representing a completely new environment, which takes the user into other worlds.

 

 

What are the fields of application of AR augmented reality?

Google has both concepts in the pipeline: Google

Tango is the augmented reality project for the which will be introduced for the first time in the commercial market in the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro.

Tango uses multiple sensors and special cameras that can very accurately measure the environment.0

Thus, a Tango smartphone can not only see a two-dimensional image, but is also able to calculate a three-dimensional map of the environment. Thus, it can recognise table surfaces and make balls roll over them, or visualise additional information in museum exhibits.

Stefan shows you everything that augmented reality and Google Tango can do in a video. Because, frankly, neither words nor images can really explain these effects.

The charm of augmented reality is not only its entertainment value. Augmented reality applications help to learn more about the environment. The embedded, context-sensitive information quickly proves its great usefulness. Augmented reality requires special sensors for Tango’s precision functions, but in many cases, simple image recognition is sufficient to perform the main functions. Google demonstrates this for example in its translator, which is able to translate certain texts directly in the camera viewfinder. You don’t see the illegible foreign characters, but the translated text.

Sony has integrated augmented reality functions in the camera app, so you can bring dinosaurs back to life again with an Xperia phone.

If you have a dollar note, with the “1600” application, you can take a look at the White House.

 


Virtual reality: immersing yourself in new worlds

Virtual reality, however, is not so much intended for moving image demonstrations. Instead, the user should be the one to form his or her own image, in the truest sense of the word. Since the effect of virtual reality is based on the fact that we are completely immersed in an imaginary world. Virtual reality glasses ensure that both eyes receive their corresponding image separately, and it is the brain that converts this information into a spatial perception. So we perceive virtual reality with as much certainty as if we were looking at something life-size.

Google has been involved in virtual reality for the mobile sector. Google Cardboard was an attempt to bring virtual reality glasses into the mainstream, which has partly worked.

The image quality is reasonable, the “but” is, above all, the comfort of many of these cheap cardboard glasses.

Only the most expensive VR goggles can be worn for long periods of time in real comfort. With Daydream, Google goes one step further and provides very comfortable virtual reality glasses. These have been given the name Daydream View.

Samsung, with its Gear VR virtual reality glasses and the cooperation with the specialists from Oculus, the group has developed the currently most successful platform for virtual reality applications and games.

According to figures from Superdata and Unity, Samsung distributed approximately 4.5 million Gear VR headsets in 2016.

While it is true that many goggles are distributed through promotions for various Samsung devices (especially with the Galaxy S7), competitors such as HTC Vive, Playstation VR or Daydream View are far from reaching these figures.

Virtual reality has many applications. The world of video games is among the most popular.

Anyone who has tried a virtual reality game knows why: the environment is visible in all directions, so you can look in any direction in a room or inside a vehicle, as if you were actually inside. But the movements are sometimes noticeable.

And this is something that causes problems for some users, because it gives them a headache or even makes them dizzy.

Holiday photos make a very different impression when they are taken with a 360-degree camera. Samsung Gear 360 takes surprisingly good panoramic photos, allowing you to experience your holiday memories in a whole new way.
