Rob Manson confirmed for GeoNEXT conference

By on 15 November, 2011
The GeoNEXT conference, kicking off in Sydney on 29 February 2012, has just confirmed that Rob Manson, managing director and co-founder of Sydney-based R&D lab, MOB, will be presenting on Augmented Reality.
Rob regularly presents on mobile, AR and future technology developments, is a co-founder of and, and is an invited expert on the W3C’s Points of Interest Working Group.
Rob is not just a spectator when it comes to the future of technology, he’s actively working to shape it, and has been doing this through building web-based startups in Sydney since 1994.
His presentation will be entitled ‘Augmented Reality – now "here" is everywhere.’ An abstract of the talk follows:
Shakespeare said "All the world is a stage" and with pervasive computing this has never been more true. As Mark Weiser predicted, our computers and sensors are rapidly dissolving into the background of the world around us. But if this technology is truly pervasive, then where does the User Interface go? This question shows why Augmented Reality is much more than just the latest novelty. It is part of a structural change in the way we use and interact with the network. This presentation will look at what this means for our sense of where and even who we are.
