AR Particle Beam James Alliban 2009 desktop, graphic image recognition, marker logo, animation, single-user, small field of view, reactive to marker position, linear narrative starts with marker recognition, in front of any computer with webcam, Papervision3D, particles
This is my winning entry for the Augmented reality competition on the Papervision3D forum. It was my first dip into FLARToolkit and Papervision. 3D lighting techniques and physics are used here to create an augmented reality in which a beam of light shines out of the pattern. Strange celestial light particles circulate and trail around the beam.
Bamzooki Jason Garbett, Rupert Harris (BBC) 2010 television, 'Free-D' marker recognition, video, marker, generative animation, sound, multi-user, small field of view, game show, linear narrative, on any television, television, game, show, entertainment
Children's entertainment show in which teams of kids design creatures called zooks which are put to the test against each other. The BBC’s Virtual Studiotechnology was used to enable realtime composition of the 3D rendered graphics with live camera feeds. Each studio camera has a dedicated render PC to render the virtual scene from that camera’s perspective. To know what a studio camera’s perspective is, each camera is fitted with a second ‘Free-D’ camera which points towards the ceiling. On the ceiling are reflective, circular bar codes. The 3-D camera data is fed to a computer system that identifies the targets on the ceiling and calculates that camera’s position and orientation, 50 times a second.
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.
