ATTENTION: Do not read until 2037

Time has flown by…I remember our first Wednesday night thinking that maybe I should drop this class based on the first forewarnings and lists of assignments. But boy am I glad that I didn’t! What I have learned this semester is both invaluable and applicable for all us moving forward, many thanks to the eye-opening presentations, Twitter […]

Warby Parker Making Glasses Cool Again

AR is used today mainly in applications where computer-generated images, sounds, […]

Is My TV Watching Me?

“Hey, that one Super Bowl commercial last night was amazing.” “Which one?” “You know, the Mr. Clean dancing commercial?” “Nope, I was never shown that one.” “Oh…” Welcome to the future, where different viewers watch different television commercials based on their unique patterns and preferences. While my Super Bowl example is an exaggerated take on […]
