Japanese online advertisement planning company Digital Advertising Consortium Inc. has partnered with the French company Total Immersion to market advertising based on that company’s software technology for so-called augmented reality.
The technology fuses real video images with computer-generated images. For example, if a person stands in front of a PC equipped with a webcam so they can see themselves in a monitor and holds up a an object such as a card printed with a special code, the Total Immersion software will recognize the code and generate the corresponding 3-D image.
If the printing on a card codes for the image of a toy figure, the person looking in the monitor will see himself holding the toy figure in his hand. The image on screen moves in response to movements of the actual card, meaning the process can be used to operate virtual objects.

The Singapore Tat2 Convention 2010 held last month was a blast as we had fun making new friends and knowing more about their industry. One of them was the good people from Room 101. plussixfive had the opportunity to have a chat with Matt Booth, Founder of Room 101, as he shared with us his take on the industry, inspiration, and possible ventures into Singapore. Read the full interview below.
Is Room101 looking to expand its brand to Singapore?
We’re interested for sure. I think the quality and level of retail and presentation here is top notch, I mean on a global scale.
When you design your jewellery, where do you draw your inspiration from?
A lot of the inspirations behind my designs come from sculptures that I’ve seen from Japan and Noh Theatre (Traditional Japanese Theatre), masks, Buddhist deities and sculptures outside of temples. But you know, my executive collection is all geometric shapes, patterns, things like that. More contemporary, modern contemporary.
So do you do a lot of travelling to places like Japan and Thailand because of the Temples that they have?
I’ve seen temples in Thailand, but their sculptures are different. Every country kind of represents the same characters differently. And I definitely connect more with the Japanese representation.

The excitement around 3D TV at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) did not appear to be influencing companies at the AVN-Adult Entertainment Expo taking place at the same time, despite the fact that the adult industry is often a first mover in new video technologies.
Electronics giants such as Sony and Samsung unveiled a range of new products for 3D home entertainment at CES, including ultra-thin-screen HDTVs and Blu-ray Disc players, in high hopes that consumers will snap them up this year.
The adult industry is taking a more cautious approach.
Some adult filmmakers are dabbling in 3D video, but most are moving slowly because of the higher production costs, the need for 3D glasses, and a belief that not enough people will buy 3D TV systems this year to justify the cost of making 3D movies.
“We’re very excited to do 3D production, but we don’t feel market penetration [of 3D TVs] has hit the level we need it to be in the home,” said Rob Smith, director of operations at Hustler Video Group, in an interview in Las Vegas. “I’m hoping by the fourth quarter of this year it will be at the point where we can justify doing a 3D product,” he said.
