Well, at least I know some of the ideas I've bandied about with friends will be developed. Still makes me greet "speculative" videos like these with a combination of excitement and frustration.
I intentionally did not post about my interest in using tablets to mock up furniture arrangements (@ 1:17 in the above) because it's such a no-brainer that it simply will get built, and it'd be fun to be the team to partner with the major brand that does it first.
But I did post about using Kinect to help build Ikea furniture, much like the "help plugging in a router" example (@ 0:21 in the above). I love the application of AR to areas such as home repair. I'd definitely purchase a tablet version of Time Life's Fix-it-Yourself Manual (especially because I'd be confident that it's kept up-to-date).
So - kudos to the team at Metaio for pushing this stuff. Hopefully our paths will cross!
