The 3 Laws of Augmented Reality Design - Ori Inbar talks at ISTAS 2013

Miguel Sanchez

Ori’s talk from ISTAS 2013 in Toronto on 29, July 2013. Following an intro to augmented reality he reviews a collection of AR experiences and test them against Lex Ardez’ “3 laws of augmented reality design”:

1. Augmentation must emerge from the real world and/or relate to it
2. Augmentation must not distract from reality, but rather make you more aware of it
3. Augmented interaction must deliver a superior experience to alternatives, or better yet – there’s no alternative.

These rules are logical and simple and yet most AR implementations fail to meet these laws. When it comes to defining an AR experience, the #3 is the most important: do not implement AR only for a cool factor; if a traditional interaction technique (on computers, mobile devices etc.) does a good job – do not try to do recreate it with AR. Look for the specific experiences that can only be achieved with AR, even if it’s very niche.

    • Hi Lorraine! Depends on the look you’re running after. I love the coobinatimn of the deeper gray with the silver hardware which gives the bag a unique semi-formal look whilst the gris ciment is an excellent example of combining a lighter gray color and gold hardware. But from an overall look and perspective, I’d go for the gris poivre. I think you’ll get much more mileage out of this bag.If you’re open to considering, the one in bordeaux is not bad at all! Just love the whole looke very rich deep red and gold hardware. Classic look with a twist!
