LifeClipper
lifeClipper is an augmented reality outdoor art project created by the Basel-based artist Jan Torpus in 2004, utilising an immersive wearable head-mounted display (HMD) system built from off-the-shelf components. It was presented by the new media art organization plug.in in the historic St. Alban quarter in Basel, Switzerland. The individual parts are: Portable computer, head mounted display, video camera, microphone, GPS sensor, compass and pressure sensors. When moving around, the system uses GPS co-ordinates to trigger images and sounds for the user, so that they may look at an area of interest and have impressions of the past for example brought up in their display. Many users have described the experience like living in a movie.
