Using Augmented Reality in the Server Room

I was sitting thinking the other day how awesome it would be to use augmented reality in the server room. What am I talking about? Well wouldn’t it be cool to be able to point a camera at a switch stack and see the description labels associated with each port hovering around a linked by clearly defined lines.

Is it out of the realms of possibility? I don’t think so. You could have several “markers” on either side of the stack. The computer would know where the camera is pointing, you know the distance, rotation and orientation of the stack. Knowing this information, you could quite safely draw on over the top of the image and indicate where the switch ports are.

Am I crazy or would this be a good idea?

    That sounds like a pretty good idea. You should go for it!

      It was already done in 2008 at IBM Hursley Laboratories, UK. Works really well šŸ™‚
