ZugMO is a computer interface that allows people to interact with their computer via their web cam rather than their keyboard or mouse. With ZugMO a person’s movements, or motions, are captured by their web cam. This allows the person to interact with their system while several feet away.
Proprietary Technology #2 ZugSTAR (Zugara STreaming AR) ZugSTAR is a web based video conferencing technology that allows people in different locations to have shared AR experiences. Like other video conferencing systems ZugSTAR allows for two-way video transmissions, but with the added functionality of allowing people to interact with one another's “augmented” experience in real time. DID YOU KNOW? Gartner IT predicts that by 2015 over 200 million people will be paying for video conferencing. With ZugSTAR, Augmented Reality becomes a technology that facilitates collaboration. People no longer need to be in the same room to manipulate and discuss 3D models, as physical distance becomes less of a barrier.
ZugMUG is a piece of facial tracking software that allows the webcam to determine where a person’s face is within the video stream. With ZugMUG a person’s face can become the “marker”, subsequently allowing for Augmented Reality executions where people no longer need to hold a piece of paper up to the webcam.
