Introducing City Visions

City Visions is an open challenge for augmented reality developers to think critically about the future of augmented urban landscapes and, in doing so, design working proof of concept applications. We invite you to work as futurists and use the provided composite mural image as the tracking target, and the canvas upon which you will build your augmented experience. The huge mural will be located in a high traffic and very visible area on the AWE premises. The challenge is particularly focused on augmented visions of the future city in the areas of architecture, transportation, and art. However, this is a crowd-sourced campaign designed to draw from the wisdom, creativity, and insight of the collective, so please feel free to push the envelope in terms of meaningful and interesting ways that the future digital city may emerge.

Your City Vision applications are eligible to be nominated for the Auggie Awards for Best Software and will be featured onsite and promoted to the 2000 attendees.

Looking forward to your AWEsome nominations. Make the world more interactive my friends!
