A guest post by Jack Dashwood
One of the hallmarks of Sci-Fi films such as Minority Report and Star Trek is the inclusion of a high-tech gadgets and wildly creative computer user interfaces – doing away with the boring computer mouse and keyboard entirely. These kind of fancy UIs are expected in the latest summer blockbuster, but what if you could build one in real life?
Elecnor-Deimos has done exactly that with their Argos platform. Argos incorporates the Metaio SDK, Virtual reality and gesture-based controls all into a single user interface and as you can see from the video above, the results are pretty spectacular. Combining Metaio augmented reality with a whole host of cutting edge technologies into one package, Elecnor-Deimos has created something that would look right at home in the latest Sci-Fi movie or – perhaps in the near future – our own living rooms!

Jack knew that he was interested in Augmented Reality ever since he learned how to read at age 25. Fast forward and Jack now works at center of the universe when it comes to AR: the offices of Metaio. How did he wind up here? We don’t know, but we have yet to find a legitimate excuse to get rid of him. In the meantime we let him work on the blog and run the Metaio US PR operations. When not talking and writing about AR technology, he can usually be found augmenting his reality by more traditional means down the local pub.
