Collaborative AR:
Comparing Approaches

Bit-identical replicated computation using Croquet.

I think Croquet is the best thing I’ve seen in computing over the last 10 or 15 years. It solves some important and massive problems in extremely elegant ways. It really could become a new kind of operating system for the whole Internet.

Replicated Events

Replicated State

Centralized State (aka Client/Server)

Initiatives to place real-time processing on the wrong side of the latency wall have always been doomed to failure because, even though bandwidth and latency are improving, local computing performance is improving faster.

Replicated Computation

Not Mutually Exclusive

The key thing about all the world’s big problems is that they have to be dealt with collectively. If we don’t get collectively smarter, we’re doomed.

–Doug Engelbart

Collaboration and the Augmented Conversation

AR, VR, AI, 3D Pioneer I invented 3D portals and crates in games. I wrote the first 3D adventure/shooter, and created Croquet - it redefines collaboration.
