I managed to get myself an iPod touch 5th gen for my birthday so now I can explore the world of Minecraft Augmented Reality with the Minecraft Reality app on the iTunes store. This app allows you to put pre-built Minecraft structures in specific locations in the real world, where others with the same app can see it. I am hoping to place virtual models around my room and let students explore them with their own iDevice or perhaps even mine. So expect some updates on that in the near future, near being well and truly over a month.
Along the same line last night I managed to get myself an invite to the Niantic Project Beta, which is a Google/Android based virtual game that plays out in the real world with augmented reality. I am very interested in seeing how it plays and trying to figure a way to bring something similar perhaps into my school/classroom. If any of you out there are playing I am one of the Enlightened and am so far a little bit at a loss for what I need to do and how to get to where I need to be.
A quick post today, thanks for reading.
