Beginner’s Guide to Augmented Reality

Beginner’s Guide to Augmented Reality
Augmented Reality has been cropping up a lot lately, especially Flash-based AR. I will guide you through how to create some simple yet neat effects that you can put on your own website. Introduction: Augmented Reality Augmented Reality has been judged as one of 2010’s hottest trends. The concept behind it is pretty simple, over lay the physical world with cool graphics that appear to occupy the same space as you. Lots of companies have used it as a great promotional tool. Lego use it as a way to visualize what their products will look like when you’ve finished building them. Some freelancers use it as a very cool business card and promotional tool. In January of this year, I completed a project for university where I created a wearable augmented reality system. Check out the video on Youtube. I approached creating AR from a design point of view, knowing very little about coding in AS3.

Augmented Reality and WebGL | technotecture AR, and especially vision based one, has just some small but hard constraints on an accompanying 3D engine. Firstly, there should be some sort of support for video textures if we are doing vision based AR in perfection with undistorting the image etc. pp.. In my particular scenario that wasn't really necessary or a requirement. Secondly, the more pressing requirement is the usage of a transformation matrix stack that supports caching of matrices and particularly transparently supports custom matrices. Now here we go: osg.js has all of above, but it is as its larger cousin OpenSceneGraph already large.

20 WebGL sites that will blow your mind | 3D | Creative Bloq WebGL is a JavaScript API based on the well-known OpenGL 3D graphics standard, and it gives JavaScript plugin-free access to the graphics hardware, via the HTML5 canvas element. It's thanks to WebGL that we can include real-time 3D graphics in web pages. Apple are supporting the standard too, so we can (hopefully!) expect to see it cropping up in Safari on Macs, iPhones and iPads sometime (though probably not soon) - and Opera are testing their own version, so the only holdout is Microsoft. So sit back, crank up your latest browser, and check out these demos - if you think you can do better, go for it: there are some hints and tips on how at the end. 01.

Créer des films d’animation 3D sans savoir programmer, c'est désormais possible* Cette année, comment les enseignants vont-ils utiliser les outils et ressources numériques en classe ? Certains vont poursuivre ce qu'ils ont engagé les années passées. D'autres vont se lancer dans de nouveaux projets. Pourquoi pas l'édition de livres numériques ? Attention, le travail de préparation des manuscrits est ardu ! D'autres encore découvriront avec gourmandise d'ingénieuses applications à utiliser sur tablettes. En dépit de l'avalanche de nouveautés et du solide optimisme d'une bonne proportion des utilisateurs, il reste des parents, des enseignants et des responsables éducatifs qui hésitent à aller au-delà de la banale salle informatique de l'établissement. Et vous, comment allez-vous utiliser les TICE cette année ? Illustration : cristovao,

Admittedly it’s not as responsive as the C#, but nonetheless we can still have fun producing the likes of the GE smart grid example.

Augmented reality NASA X38 display showing video map overlays including runways and obstacles during flight test in 2000. Augmented reality (AR) is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data. It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one’s current perception of reality.[1] By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.[2][3] Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match. Technology[edit] Hardware[edit] Hardware components for augmented reality are: processor, display, sensors and input devices. Display[edit] Head-mounted[edit] Eyeglasses[edit] HUD[edit] EyeTap[edit]
