The Haunted Book Camille Scherrer (EPFL CVLab) 2009 desktop, graphic image recognition, graphic images, animation, multi/single user, small field of view, reactive to object position, linear narrative, user can turn the page and start animation, in front of any computer with webcam, poetry, book, student work, markerless
Diploma project by an ECAL Media & Interaction Design student with the EPFL CVLab. An artwork that relies on recent Computer Vision and Augmented Reality techniques to animate the illustrations of a poetry book. Because we don't need markers, we can achieve seamless integration of real and virtual elements to create the desired atmosphere. The visualization is done on a computer screen to avoid cumbersome Head-Mounted Displays. The camera is hidden into a desk lamp for easing even more the spectator immersion.
The Robotics Lab Georg Klein (University of Oxford) 2009 handheld screen, envoirenment mapping, video, still image, semi multi-user due to large screen, 360 choice of perspective, small field of view, reactive to hand position, still, after mapping, space-specific, robots, science fiction, science
A user enters the robotics lab. In this room five maps have been made with their own AR. As the user explores the room the maps are automatically detected and the appropriate AR is shown. The user can explore the room freely and view the maps in any order.
The Whisper Deck Craig Kapp 2009 headmounted display, marker recognition, marker, generative animation, single-user, 360 large field of view, reacts to head position, non-linear informational narrative defined by user, any suface, Flicker, Google, search, informational, voice
The Whisper Deck is a voice-controlled augmented reality data visualization tool that immerses users within a fluid information ecosystem of their own design. Using an off the shelf Vuzix CamAR head mounted display, users can look around their local environment. A special symbol visible in the environment causes the 3D interface of the Whisper Deck to appear. Users can speak commands to the model to cause it to search the Internet and return relevant information, including spoken definitions from Wikipedia, images from Picasa, Flickr and Google Images, as well as search term comparisions from Google Trends.
Triceratops Georg Klein (University of Oxford) 2009 handheld screen, envoirenment mapping, video, still image, semi multi-user due to large screen, 360 choice of perspective, small field of view, reactive to hand position, still, informational about the physical object, after mapping, space-specific, natural museum oxford, museum, education, informational
University of Oxford Natural History Museum Augmented Reality Tour. A map is made around a triceratops skull in the museum and an AR model is added. This work extends Georg Klein's Parallel Tracking and Mapping system to allow it to use multiple independent cameras and multiple maps. This allows maps of multiple workspaces to be made and individual augmented reality applications associated with each. As the user explores the world the system is able to automatically relocalize into previously mapped areas.
Unmakeablelove Sarah Kenderdine, Jeffrey Shaw (Museum Victoria, UNSW iCinema Centre, EPIDEMIC.) 2008 round screen, infrared light, the viewers, filmed and virtual imagery, multi-user, 180 large field of view, no narrative, anywhere, long set up, torch, flash-light
To explicitly articulate the conjunction between the real and virtual spaces in this work, the viewer’s virtual torch beams penetrate through the container and illuminate other viewers who are standing opposite them on other sides of the installation. This augmented reality is achieved using infra-red cameras that are positioned on each screen pointing at its respective torch operators, and the video images are rendered in real time onto each viewer’s screen so as to create the semblance of illuminating the persons opposite them. The resulting ambiguity experienced between the actual and rendered reality of the viewers’ presences in this installation, reinforce the perceptual and psychological tensions between ‘self’ and ‘other’.
