Cliffs AR Life Recap – July 16th – 22nd
It feels like a lot of stuff has happened in the past week with injuries and everything. I’ve finished the book “Common Sense, the Turing Test, and the Quest for Real AI” and it turned out to be a pretty interesting read. I wasn’t sure what I was hoping for in reading it, but I came out with some new ideas. I’ve also dove more into the Udemy course by Diego Herrera called “Discover Voice Controlled AR Apps”. In It I did a quick 10 minute Unity / Vuforia demo where it was essentially creating a scene that used my webcam as I raise my phone to show a picture of a Lamborghini. The screen would then show a 3D lambo I placed on it. Old and boring to most, but fascinating to me! My screen came out all janky when trying to screen record it, so I’m looking more into OBS to figure out the issue.
Anyways, here’s some random resources I came across this past week, hope you enjoy!
I just found this site today looking for AR news. There’s tons of sources I use for web design and development, but being new to the space I had no idea where to go for AR stuff. If there’s any AR or related sites out there such as VR, then please let me know!
I meant to post this last week but forgot, but it’s worth downloading the latest and greatest if you’re new like me.
To go with the Udemy course I been doing, there’s a portion of the course to teach that says it’ll teach Machine Learning. It’s most likely on a small scale, but I decided to check out the subject matter with a few books that I plan on reading, this time with affiliates!
- Data Science by John D. Kelleher
- Humans Need Not Apply – Jerry Kaplan
- Radical Technologies: The Design of Everyday Life by Adam Greenfield
- Crushing It by Gary Vaynerchuk
I feel like I’m not 100% sure on what goes into an AR resource post. If there’s something glaring that I’m just flat out missing or a particular focus, then let me know! I’m also not sure exactly what to call this weekly round up of AR related things I find. It feels like it’s just missing the point for a serious AR post or something. I’ll possibly come up with some tester names over the next few weeks to see what works best.
