castAR augmented reality glasses switch to true VR with a clip

There's a team of creators out in the wild this week showing off a pair of augmented reality / virtual reality glasses called castAR, a pair of glasses that's set to make Star Wars a reality. The inspiration for this wearable piece of technology comes directly from the first Star Wars movie, A New Hope, in a scene where the droids are playing a 3D chess game with Chewbacca. In this scene, the pieces for the chess game, (called a Djarik hologame, for you hardcore nerds), are standing projected above the board in 3D - this inspiration pushed the creators of castAR to make a pair of glasses that uses a mix of augmented reality and projection to make a whole new environment for the user.

Google Glass augmented reality demo birthed in open-source library OpenGlass

A developer by the name of Brandyn White has created for Google Glass an augmented reality user interface that will one day be integrated as easy as any other Glassware. This means that while some so-called augmented reality apps created for Glass are still working outside Google's preferred Glass-friendly software environment, pushing forward with basic Android APKs, this solution aims for a real-deal Mirror API build. Mirror API is a software developer environment unveiled by Google earlier this year made for developers to easily create apps without Google's supported bounds.
