As with any new technology, there is confusion around what AR can and can't do. In this blog post, originally published on LinkedIn, Chris shares lessons learned and wise advice for anyone using – or thinking about using – Augmented Reality.

Will ARKit & ARCore ruin augmented reality for the rest of the industry?
When Pokemon Go came onto the scene, Augmented Reality finally received the prominence early adopters like HP's Chris Burgess had been expecting. With the arrival of ARKit and ARCore, the world really went AR mad. Apple and Google unleashed their latest tech for developers to start demonstrating what they can do, and so far it seems the possibilities are endless. However, Burgess wants to see AR content generation made even easier for "non-techies."

FutureSmart 4.7.1 Released with Release Notes for Solution Developers

FutureSmart 4.7.1 has been released with a number of changes that developers will be interested in.    As always, you can download the latest firmware from here.

Do you want to know what changes are in this revision?   The standard release notes that accompany FutureSmart firmware releases are targeted at end-customers, which means they are not as helpful as they could be to JetAdvantage solution developers.   To fix this, we're starting to create release notes specifically for developers.  You'll find those on the FutureSmart Firmware Solution Developer Release Notes page.

App Gallery disabled in FutureSmart Bundle 4.7

The App Gallery has been disabled in FutureSmart Bundle 4.7


The on-device App Gallery has been disabled in FutureSmart Bundle 4.7. If usage is attempted, a message stating “This app has been disabled” will be displayed. Please do not report this as an issue to the SDK support forum.

App Gallery will return in a future FutureSmart release as a tool more tailored for use by resellers (not end users). Among the changes being considered, a verified reseller login may be required to use the App Gallery.

In the coming months, watch for more announcements related to reseller-focused app deployment tools and capabilities. This will include the redesigned App Gallery as well as a new web-based HP App Manager tool to enable remote deployment to fleets of Printers/MFPs (currently in Beta).


Note: The HPK tool and LDB are still be available for app testing purposes.
