By creating a game that forced his eyes to work together, cross-eye sufferer and game developer James Blaha has been working to overcome his condition and retrain his brain with the power of gamification.

While truly smart digital assistants are still on the horizon, recent advances in voice recognition and control technologies are taking us closer to sci-fi dreams like Iron Man’s AI JARVIS or Her’s Samantha.

What if controlling a robotic arm felt as natural as moving your own arm? Meet the Anthropomorphic Augmented Reality Controller (AARC) – a natural user interface that makes it easy to control robotic arms and save lives in the field.

Experimental headsets are changing how we see the world, either by creating the virtual worlds of our imaginations or adding ghostly layers on top of the real world. At the LEAP.AXLR8R, GetVu’s vision lies between these two extremes – an augmented reality platform where 3D models appear to exist in real space, amongst real objects.

From documents to gaming, it seems like we’re always looking for new ways to use the hidden power of the browser. Now, thanks to the LivePainter team, you’ll soon be able to add motion-controlled animation to that list. They want to make it easy for anybody to create animations on the web.

No surgeon likes to walk away from a patient on the operating table with a tube in their heart. While coronary catheterization can help people with a wide variety of heart problems, physicians are still forced to leave their patient’s side to control the catheter and avoid breaking sterile procedures. But that’s about to change. Thanks to DriftCoast, surgeons may soon be able to touchlessly control cardiac catheters within the operating theater.

After a stroke or physical injury, the road to recovery can be long and difficult. Physical therapy is a slow process that often takes months before positive effects can be felt. In the meantime, patients are stuck performing dull, repetitive tasks that feel like chores. But what if you could make physical rehabilitation into a game?

If Jackson Pollock painted in a digital medium, what tools would he use? Modern digital art and design tools allow an incredible range of flexibility and control – but often require dozens of steps to accomplish what can be done naturally with paint and canvas. But with newer technologies, it’s possible to further bridge the […]

Arvind Gupta is the founder of the LEAP AXLR8R and partner at SOSventures. Three months to make our world interactive… ready, set, GO! When we first announced the LEAP AXLR8R, we had no idea what concepts the community of developers, designers and founders would come up with. Far exceeding our expectations, we were floored with […]
