Grid Computing and AR

Grid computing Part 1 (IBM)



"According to IBM's definition, 'a Grid is a collection of distributed computing resources available over a local or wide area network that appear to an end user or application as one large virtual computing system....Grid computing is an approach to distributed computing that spans not only locations but also organizations, machine architectures and software boundaries to provide unlimited power, collaboration and information access to everyone connected to a Grid.'"

What isn't mentioned here is that the same principles apply directly to mobile, thin-client computers like the Nomad Expert Technician System.



So a mobile computer doesn't in itself have to be all that fast and expensive for augmented reality. All it needs to do is harness the power of Grid computing (which provides the massively powerful, parallel CPU number crunching power to the AR applications) and pervasive high-speed wireless Internet networks that relay the data back and forth, constantly.



Since this is all built on Grid standards, every computer and mobile computer will be able to access this "unlimited" CPU power, much in the same way that every computer today can run the standard Internet Protocol.



Your thin-client, Nomad-connected mobile computer might cost a hundred bucks but have 24/7 access to thousands of massive servers, chugging in unison on whatever augmented reality application you can conceive of.
