Augmented Reality comes to the Interactive 2010!

On Friday, September 24th a few members of the Talking Dog Studios gang took a short jaunt up to Saskatoon to attend Interacitve 2010!, an interactive media event put on by the Saskatchewan Motion Picture Industry Association and the SaskInteractive Media Association Inc. It was a day of schmoozing and rubbing elbows, but also informative sessions on what’s going on in the interactive media industry in Saskatchewan.

One of the highlights for our crew was the opportunity to speak with Robert Rice, the founder of AR Consortium, and hear his session on Augmented Reality: Evolution of Media and Convergence. Considering all the exciting projects we have been working on with augmented reality recently, our tails were really wagging. All of the speakers were great though and it simply underscored how much talent and innovation Saskatchewan has to offer.

However, the icing on the cake came later that evening when they presented the SaskInteractive Media Awards. Surrounded by representatives from various businesses in the interactive media industry and with the smooth beats of DJ Albert from zu swirling around the room, we proudly accepted two awards: “How Big is Baby” - Education/Learning/Training Visualization and “Where the Buffalo Roam” - Mobile Entertainment. We were also nominated for two other awards: “ExpandAR” - eGaming/Interactive Entertainment and “Gojira” - Interactive Advertising/Online Ads. It was great to receive recognition for the hard work we do here at Talking Dog Studios with augmented reality and we intend to keep the ball rolling! So keep checking our website and let’s keep the future augmented!
