Vote For Metaio for the 2013 Auggies!

May 17, 2013

Sorta reminds me of this.

It’s that time of year again, as the Augmented World Expo has renewed and expanded the annual award for the best of the best in the augmented reality industry, the “Auggies”. Previously consisting of only a single award, the competition now has 6 categories, and Metaio and its partners are competing in 4 of them!

For the next two weeks, awards will be open to public voting in order to narrow down the entries for each category to just 5 finalists. We’re competing against some of the best and most creative apps in the world, we’d love your support. Please take a moment to vote for our entries (individual links are listed below), or just click on one of the category buttons below to go straight to the entry.

    

And while you’re at it, we’d love for you to support our amazing partners working with our technology:

Here’s a look back at the our winning submission from the 2012 Auggies, 3-D object recognition and tracking:

Once again, thanks for your support in making Metaio the best Augmented Reality Company out there!

Pick of the week: “White Men Wearing Google Glass” Tumblr.

I’m not entirely sure what this really says about the future of wearable computing, but it’s certainly a talking point. It also highly amusing to see techworld celebrities like Pete Cashmore (below) and Joshua Topolsky sporting the famous glasses in glamour-shot-like glory. I can’t decide whether we’re going to look back on these with awe or ridicule. Think Game Boy vs. 80′s cellphone. Mix in that it’s turning into a fashion statement and there’s a high probability it will be the latter. I’m hoping for the best.
