Designing the Future of Augmented Reality
BY HELEN PAPAGIANNIS
@ VOL 31
ON DEC 04, 2014
Augmented Reality (AR) is typically defined as a layering of digital information over the physical world as experienced through a smartphone, tablet, or digital eyewear. AR is quickly advancing into a new phase of contextually rich personalized experiences that combine sensors, wearable computing, big data, machine-learning, and artificial intelligence. This second wave of AR will surpass novelty and extend our human capacities to better understand and experience our world in new meaningful ways. AR is no longer about technology, it’s about living in the real world and creating meaningful experiences that are human-centred. How do we want to live in and with AR, and how will it shape our lives?

Providing hope to children in the Gambia
BY MARIËLLE DAEMEN
@ VOL 34
ON JAN 30, 2018
For Mariëlle Daemen, starting a foundation had been a dream ever since she visited the Gambia for the first time. Back then, she witnessed poverty and many children not being able to go to school. This led her to co-found the Kids2School Foundation.
Starting from the principle that education is a basic right for every child in the world, Kids2School is trying to give more children in the Gambia access to education. Children who out of poverty would never have a chance to go to school and as such could never hope for a better future for them and their family. For the sponsors of the children, the foundation provides a very direct, one-on-one opportunity to contribute to a better world as well.
