ISMAR 2011: AR/MR Unbound -2nd Call for Exploratory Videos

The second call for Exploratory Videos in now open in the context of the 10th IEEE International Symposium on Mixed and Augmented Reality to be held 26-29 October in Basel, Switzerland It is conventional wisdom that Augmented and Mixed Reality have the potential to reshape how we interact with the world in profound ways. But how? The design of current AR and MR applications is limited by a technological framework still in its infancy, and speculation on future developments is constrained by the foreseeable future as well. This call for videos solicits explorations of, speculations about, and meditations on the experience of AR and MR in a future unbound from the fetters of our current technologies.
