invites you to
The Majoran Distillery at Level 2, 14 Grenfell Street.
We invite you to hear from Professor Bruce Thomas, of the Wearable Computer Lab at UniSA.
Speaking about Wearables, Deputy Director of the Advanced Computing Research Centre and Director of the Wearable Computer Lab. Prof. Thomas is nationally and internationally recognised for his contributions to the scientific community and to industry in the areas of Wearable Computers, Tabletop Interactions, Augmented Reality, and User Interaction.
Over the years the Wearable Computer Lab have developed a number of ground breaking research projects. In 1998 they began the Tinmith mobile augmented reality project, which has now developed into a 3D modelling system that a user can take outdoors to create and interact with objects and buildings. The same hardware platform was then used to implement a modified version of Quake to allow players to fight virtual monsters while mobile outdoors in ARQuake.
For truly wearable applications, they have also performed research into the embedding of electronic devices into textiles and clothing for next generation E-Suits. The Lab perform a variety of research into AR, VR, 3D, and UI areas. Website: http://wearables.unisa.edu.au
Come and hear about some of the research WCL have undertaken, and their views on new wearable technologies (like Google Glass). Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/wearablecomputerlab
