  2. 2. The overlaying of digital content on a view of the real world Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  3. 3. In the street Layar AR Browser Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  4. 4. In the home EyePet (Sony Playstation 3) Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  5. 5. In the workplace Augmented Reality assisted mechanics at BMW Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  6. 6. Marker Based AR software uses a marker for two things…first, to determine registration and tracking (where should the content and media be displayed) and second, what content to display Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  7. 7. Google Earth models Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  8. 8. Location Aware Mobile AR + + (+ accelerometer) camera GPS compass live view tells device where tells device which of surroundings you are direction you’re facing Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  9. 9. displays ‘points of interest’ (POIs) around your current location Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  10. 10. Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  11. 11. Wikipedia Flickr Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  12. 12. User Generated POIs Users can add their own POIs at wikitude.me/map.jsp# Wednesday, 16 June 2010
  13. 13. AR browsers & interoperability Most AR browsers display points of interest (POIs) around your current location. Each point is characterised by several attributes like: geo-coordinates (longitude, latitude, altitude), name description images address and other information Each AR browser has its own interface (API) and data structure to model those points of interest.

  16. 16. AR in education...? Marker based or mobile? Marker based and mobile? - Image Recognition Lab / workshop simulations Library archive image overlays (eg. architecture) Virtual models for museums Geotag OERs - channel by subject area Google Street View with location-specific multimedia Linked data (data.gov.uk) Mirror Worlds - Real World User Generated Content - data capture, social media, real-time...
