Augmented Reality + Rocksolver = Augmented Ability

Imagine this:

You are building a rock wall and the safety glasses you are wearing have an in-built Augmented Reality (AR) display which shows you which rock to put in the wall and where to put it. So what you see would look something like this:

Just a few years ago that sounded like science fiction but now it’s close to reality with companies like the Sydney-based Explore Engage who are right on the cutting edge of this technology. Check the AR glasses they are developing here:

With AR glasses the builder of a dry-stone wall or a stone cottage will have their hands free to follow the Rocksolver lay-out plan. In addition to the enhanced ability of being able to quickly place rocks in favourable positions Rocksolver will also conduct a detailed structural stability analysis to ensure the structure meets engineering specifications.

Atmospheric physicist by trade. Spent some years working in Antarctica and building a house in Tasmania. One day a very old technology (dry stone walling) and a very new technology (computer science) came together in my brain and I conceived an invention. Now I'm an inventor/entrepreneur.
