Interactive Poster Session

This year, the ISMAR posters will be interactive: You can easily remember posters you are interested in, by taking a picture of them with your smartphone. Using image recognition, your picture will be analyzed and automatically annotated. You can then directly access additional material, share the poster or import it to your mendeley library.
This service is provided by Kooaba Image Recognition . To snap and remember the posters, you can use the Kooaba mobile Apps: Déjà Vu for iPhone or Paperboy for Android.
Here is an example using the "Déjà Vu" app for iPhone:

take a picture of a poster, it will be
added to the list of visual memos

after synchronisation with our servers,
the icon indicates that the image
was recognised

in the detail view, your memo is
automatically annotated
a dedicated result page allows
you to share the item and
access additional material
Check out additional information about Kooaba's apps on their website www.kooaba.com.

Book a free LifeClipper3 walk during ISMAR11!


lifeClipper3 (http://lifeclipper3.torpus.com) is a game-like, interactive new-media artwork which is implemented with immersive Augmented Reality Technologies in St. Johanns Park in Basel, Switzerland. It consists of the real park landscape with occasional events and situations and an overlaid virtual landscape with artificially created additional content. 

lifeClipper3 invites visitors to walk around the park with a wearable computer system to experience alternative realities. Shifts between everyday life conventions and fantastic parallel worlds with different physical and cultural rules create interference and question our perception of reality.
If you are interested to experience lifeClipper3 yourself you can now book an augmented walk for your stay in Basel during and after the ISMAR11 conference. Please register and choose a time slot at: http://lifeclipper3.torpus.com  A walk lasts about 20 minutes but you have one hour booked and can also share it with somebody.
