We may live in a soup of electromagnetic waves that range in wavelength from the diameter of Jupiter down to a fraction of the radius of a hydrogen atom, but our eyeballs have evolved to only let us sense a tiny slice of that spectrum. That's too bad, really, because there's a lot going on in the rest of the spectrum that could potentially inform our ROYGBIV-centric view of the world. Think of the possibilities of being able to see UV the way an insect does, or being able to watch the radiation pattern of an antenna and make adjustments on the fly. Sounds like a job for augmented reality.
If seeing the world with different eyes sounds as cool to you as it does to us, you won't want to miss Raj Nakaraja's stop by the Hack Chat. Raj is head of engineering at Brilliant Labs, an augmented reality company that's looking to bring AR into the mainstream. They've got some cool ideas about AR, and we're going to take the opportunity to talk to Raj about open-source AR in general, Brilliant's products specifically, and how AR can be incorporated into not only our projects, but into our lives as well.
