Open and Interoperable Augmented Reality
I could write a whole article on the amazing work this lady has done for AR over the years but this post is a shout out to the AR Community for Open and Interoperable Augmented Reality Experiences, an international grassroots community she organizes. Now on their 12th AR Community meeting, this group is made up of members that wish to utilize open interfaces and standards in their AR projects and/or contribute to the advancement of initiatives which promote open interfaces and interoperability to reduce barriers to growth of the AR industry. While open to anyone that wants to contribute, the community comprises some of the biggest names in mobile, desktop, academia, AR, and standards organizations.
Seems there is a lot going on this year regarding the topic of AR standards and here is what Christine has to say. "Greetings and Happy New Year! Fasten your seat belts! 2015 is off to a great start and promises to be a banner year for open and interoperable Augmented Reality. The AR Community virtual meetings help people to engage with and contribute to the activities of the AR Community between our in-person meetings. Our virtual community meeting program and schedule is described on this page." More on this group can be found at their website and the AR Standards Meeting Youtube Channel.
I highly recommend anyone that truly cares about AR being a part of our everyday to join this community. This is the group that is making the world that TechCrunch bloggers and other media outlets promise when they talk of our augmented reality future. It is for this I say thank you AR Standards Community and thank you Christine for all that you do. I am excited to see what 2015 brings for open AR!
