Under The AR Sea

We didn’t see this coming, but we definitely should have! If you’ve ever daydreamed of adding AR to your swimming experience, perhaps doing a little gaming underwater, then the Fluidra team is here to make those dreams come true with Fluid Reality. Here’s a peek at the idea as first conceived:

And now slightly more evolved:

So, if you’re looking to add another layer of reality to your pool fun, this might be the solution. 

Throwback Technology

We know, we know, this isn’t exactly cutting edge technology, but we thought we could take a little break from exploring the things that really excite us about AR and projection mapping. Instead, here’s some technology that probably excited a whole lot of people when it was first released and is great for confusing a whole lot of kids today.

We thought this video from Woolworth’s was a pretty delightful and wanted to make sure you saw it too! We wonder technology this kind of video might feature in 30 years. What do you think?

AI Meets the Supermarket

What happens when AI meets your local supermarket? Well, this Walmart might not be local just yet, but we think there’s a good chance AI-powered shopping will be a part of your life in the not-too-distant-future.

From monitoring when shelves might need to be restocked to an interactive wall that shows off the technology and makes for a fun time with the kids, Walmart’s new Levittown, N.Y. market is definitely catching people’s attention.

What do you think? Does this make you excited for your shopping future or a little nervous? Or maybe both? We’re certainly curious to find out how else this technology will develop! If you want to find out more, check out TechCrunch’s article about the new store.
