The general-purpose wearable multimedia computer has enjoyed a long history since the 1970s:

Recently wearable computing has become mainstream:

Wearable computers and Generation-5 Digital Eye Glass easily recognize a user's own gestures, forming the basis for shared Augmediated Reality.

This Studio-Workshop presents the latest in wearable AR. Participants will sculpt 3D objects using hand gestures, print them on a 3D printer, and create Unity 3D art+games using computational lightpainting.

Participants will also learn how to use 3D gesture-based AR to visualize and understand real-world phenomena, including being able to see sound waves, see radio waves, and see sight itself (i.e. to visualize vision itself, through abakographic user-interfaces that interact with the time-reversed lightfield, also known as the "sightfield"), as shown below:

Here's a portrait of Thalmic's Chris Goodine holding a gun camera in front of the mirror at FITC Wearables; we can see reflection of "veillance flux" in the mirror:

Find hidden cameras using abakography:

(found a camera hidden in the right eye of a cute stuffed animal) and visualize the veillance flux of the cameras using 3D AR.

Participants will learn the Meta SDK and how to build multisensory 3D AR interfaces and Natural User Interfaces including some that interact with the real world. Concepts taught will include:

  1. Integral Kinematics introduced through the development of novel 3D AR NUI fitness apps, including the MannFit System;
  2. Abakography (3D computational lightpainting) for the visualization of sound waves, radio waves, and surveillance flux (sightfields) using surveilluminescence (lights that change color when they are being watched by a camera).
Takes place in the Stanford Design Loft space (graduate student design loft) http://mwdes.com/index.php?/design/stanford-design-loft-redesign/
