Intro to Augmented Reality

  1. 1. See More
  2. 2. Introduction To Hasan JaffalSolution Architect
  3. 3. Introduction∗ What is Augmented Reality? ∗ Mixed Reality combines the content from the real world with  virtual imaginary
  4. 4. Introduction (Con’t)∗ AR has been around for over 17 years.∗ The combination with the cell phone represents a  dramatically new development.
  5. 5. Technology ‐ Hardware∗ The main hardware components for AR are:  ∗ Display ∗ Tracking ∗ input devices ∗ computer. 
  6. 6. Technology ‐ Display∗ Three major display techniques ∗ Head Mounted Displays ∗ Handheld Displays ∗ Spatial Displays
  7. 7. Technology ‐ Tracking∗ The portable computing device needs some  automatic way of finding out where you are or what  youre looking at. ∗ digital cameras ∗ optical sensors ∗ GPS ∗ And other technologies
  8. 8. AR Applications
  9. 9. Yelp provides user reviews about stores in photos on your smartphone.  ∗ Over 25 million people access Yelps  website each month, putting it in the  top 100 of U.S. Internet web sites ∗ Cell phone ads are attractive because  they are delivered when the customer  is ready to buy.
  10. 10. There is a simple way to use the smartphone in higher  education ∗ What if we could place a label on a physical object that  would represent the URL for a web site related to the  object. ∗ This creates what are called smart objects or intelligent  objects.
  11. 11. The November ’09 issue of Esquire has a number of advertisements that contain 2D barcodes. ∗ If you download the special computer  software (Windows and Mac Only)  then hold the bar code up to your web  cam, you will see a video, web site, or  other information.
  12. 12. A number of companies, including Layar, Wikitude, Junaio,  and Acrossair have created augmented reality applets for  Apple’s iPhone. ∗ Moving Brands has created a small book, called Living  Identity, with a “smart” cover that uses augmented reality.∗ It requires no special technology other than a web cam and  the book cover. ∗ The blogger, Surfdaddy Orca, says, “The book  is nothing less  than a manifesto that calls for a fresh understanding of the  role of brands in a moving world.”  Augmented reality applications are rapidly becoming convenient and low-cost.
  13. 13. One advantage of online material is that you can power browse from site to site using hyperlinks∗ Hardcopy material with PC Readable 2D bar code can connect  to digital information on the web.∗ This creates a new type of object that supports modern  reading habits. 
  14. 14. Some publishers are already putting 2D  barcodes on their books  ∗ Augmented textbooks are beginning to appear  (i.e. Math4Mobile).∗ link to web page that can be updated  after the  code is created.∗ The 2010 Horizon Report predicts that simple  augmented reality will affect higher education in  two to three years.
  15. 15. TV GAMES
  16. 16. Coca‐Cola Japan is using QR Code advertisements that  can be scanned on a mobile phone∗ Typical AR bar codes can only encode 4296 to 7089 characters. MMCC™ is a color 2D barcode under development that has a code capacity large enough to encode whole songs, personal information, prices, and other information without accessing the web.
  17. 17. Use any surface as an interface Total current cost ~$350This woman is wearing “magic glasses”and a haptic bracelet, which allow her toproject her “computer” on any flatsurface and manipulate it with herfingers. earpieceHapticbracelet HUD
  18. 18. If this happens, a book with barcode could become a truly smart object.And a drawingcan spring fromthe page into 3D. Virtual tabs
  19. 19. If this happens, a book with barcode could become a truly smart object.
