Invisible Highway with the Feather Bluetooth LE Mini Robot #AR #robotics @google
Invisible Highway is an experiment started by Google Creative Labs to control real life electronics by drawing destination points in AR. In this video, a user draws a pathway on a horizontal surface then the robot car follows the pathway on that surface. Does this robot car look familiar? It’s our Feather Bluetooth LE Mini Robot!
Originally prototyped by Anna Fusté and Judith Amores from the MIT Media Lab, the two researchers who worked with Google Creative Lab over the summer to experiment with AR and developing new and meaningful interaction models with our environment. Google then brought on global design and experience studio Jam3, to design and build out the concept, and add dynamic functionality that would seamlessly meld the physical and digital worlds.
