With its Color Alive line, Crayola was the first company to merge coloring books and apps so kids could bring their on-page creations to life. But Disney Research is taking that idea one step further by letting kids see a coloring book character move in 3D while they’re still coloring it.
It’s all made possible by a new augmented reality app that Disney Research has developed that’s able to track and capture real-time images from a mobile device’s camera, and then map them onto any 3D deformable surface. In the example above it’s a cartoon elephant whose pants are slowly being colored in, but it could just as easily be a castle getting new flags, or a space ship getting some battle damage.
Encore émergente, la réalité augmentée gagne de nouveaux usages. Bientôt, la projection d'images virtuelles se fera directement sur des lunettes dédiées, avec des applications possibles dans divers secteurs : commerce, médecine, armée, etc.
The Designers Augmented Reality Toolkit is a set of software tools that support rapid design and implementation of augmented reality experiences and applications. DART is designed to facilitate the complete design and development process, from initial concept through experience and content testing to final product delivery. DART empasizes rapid, informal content creation and early experience testing, promoting iterative design early in the creation process. DART is built on top of Macromedia Director, bringing AR authoring to a wide range of designers.
The human eye perceives its surroundings with incredible clarity, depth, and a wide field of view. To put in perspective with technicality, the human eye can perceive a field of view of up to 180 degrees without even moving the eyeballs.To rea
FOV and FPS these two items are massively important for VR and Mixed Reality headsets.
I see Meta2 have just come out with 90deg FOV (much improved from the original ~45deg) but no where near to StarVR 201deg FOV.
This is a great table to see all the providers and where they stand. Unfortunately it's already quite a bit out of date (May 2015) so would love to find a new table rather than make my own. Any links would be appreciated!
Lorsqu’on le regarde à travers l’oeil d’une caméra, tout un univers invisible se révèle au delà de ce qui est imprimé. Entre souvenirs et histoires étranges, le lecteur découvre page après page un monde animé qui se mélange au réel.
