Introduction into Augmented Reality with Vuforia

Something totally different here today. To help my girlfriend with her study, I needed to create an app that displays an augmented reality world. Although I love working with HTML and technologies around it, something like AR with it is possible, but doesn't reach the level of a native app. During my day job, I'm working with (mobile) C# technologies like Xamarin. I was looking for something that's easy for me to learn and use, in order to create an awesome AR application.

Vuforia

In this tutorial, I'll be showing you how to create a simple augmented reality world using Vuforia. The reason I choose the framework, was because it looked easy, is free and - most importantly - relies on the same technology Xamarin uses. Let's get started!

Taking the plunge: Buying a MacBook Pro

Hi there people! Just a quick personal note from me. School is about to start over here in a couple of days and I was always stuck with a 3-and-a-half-year old 800 MHZ laptop. I think you can imagine that this was a bad thing for me, being a programmer / designer.

With lots of thinking and checking out resources if it'll benefit me, I decided to buy a MacBook Pro. Yesterday, I received my new laptop.

MacBook Pro

I've never worked with an Mac before, but I hear a lot of positive sounds about it. If you own a Mac, what do you think is one of the greatest features of the machine / OS? And if not, what's holding you back to buy one (Next to the ridiculous high price tag)?

Anyway, I'm pretty happy with my new laptop. I'm now able to work (a lot!) faster and this will probably mean more (web)design articles for you too! I'm already working on a new design for Marcofolio.net.

Breathtaking dual- and widescreen wallpapers

Many people own a widescreen monitor. This is mainly because most laptops are widescreen and more laptops than normal PC's are sold. Another thing that people love these days is working with dual screens (two or more screens). I'm working dual too: 15,4" on my laptop, together with a 21" widescreen. It really improves my workflow as a programmer / designer.

One of the problems with these wide screen resolutions, is that many backgrounds (wallpapers) will not fit since most of them are made for a normal screen. This is the reason I collected 33 of the most breathtaking dual- and widescreen wallpapers.

Dual- and Widescreen Wallpapers

If you don't own a wide- / dualscreen monitor, don't hold back to check out this article. Most backgrounds are a great design inspiration too.

If your answer is "Yes", please read on.

MTV is doing a casting call on all digital artists out there. Together with HP they're looking for all kinds of digital artists around the globe for their new series called the Engine Room.
