Invisible Light: A global infotainment community based on augmented reality technologies

  • Theoretical details about optics and photonics are not common knowledge nowadays. Physicists are keen to scientifically explain ‘light,’ which has a huge impact on our lives. It is necessary to examine it from multiple perspectives and to make the knowledge accessible to the public in an interdisciplinary, scientifically well-grounded and appealing medial way. To allow an information exchange on aTheoretical details about optics and photonics are not common knowledge nowadays. Physicists are keen to scientifically explain ‘light,’ which has a huge impact on our lives. It is necessary to examine it from multiple perspectives and to make the knowledge accessible to the public in an interdisciplinary, scientifically well-grounded and appealing medial way. To allow an information exchange on a global scale, our project “Invisible Light” establishes a worldwide accessible platform. Its contents will not be created by a single instance, but user-generated, with the help of the global community. The article describes the infotainment portal “Invisible Light,” which stores scientific articles about light and photonics and makes them accessible worldwide. All articles are tagged with geo-coordinates, so they can be clearly identified and localized. A smartphone application is used for visualization, transmitting the information to users in real time by means of an augmented reality application. Scientific information is made accessible for a broad audience and in an attractive manner.show moreshow less
