HMD maker Vuzix partners with metaio for a new augmented realityaccessory kit for the Vuzix VR920 video glasses.
Vuzix AR Accessory Kit consists of the CamAR and the PhasAR.
The CamAR is a clip-on USB camera that mounts onto a pair of Vuzix Video Eyewear. The CamAR not only allows the user to see through to the real world but is also designed to accurately track objects and the user’s position in 3-dimensional space.
The PhasAR is a wireless augmented reality input controller designed to be used in unison with the CamAR.
The PhasAR allows users to interact with virtual, mixed and augmented reality worlds with a revolutionary 6 degree of freedom tracking system that lets the computer know exactly where the user is touching in the virtual and real worlds. Depending on the application, the PhasAR can become anything from a powerful virtual magicwand to a 3-D virtual paint brush.
The PhasAR enables powerful 2-D like mousesupport in order to effortlessly control virtual objects in 3-D space.
At the GDC 2009 (takes place this week) Vuzix will demonstrate how a simple printed page can be brought to life with 3D animated characters that literally pop out of the book. Additionally, be prepared to experience the thrill of a fantasy tale coming to life with a fire breathing dragon flying overhead.

Kaley Cuoco Nude Photos also Leaked Online
Acclaimed actress Kaley Cuoco happens to be a very competent and proficient horse rider who knows how to handle her equestrian friend Stevie. And she is the latest victim of the hacker who posted nude leaked photos of many other celebs on 4chan.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
