It is a investigation
into the creation of

WHAT IS AUGMENTED
• The technology
'augments' (= adds
to) that real-world
image with extra
layers of digital
WHAT IS AUGMENTED
• Augmented reality
(AR) is a live, direct
or indirect, view of a
sensory input such
as sound, video,
graphics or GPS
Technology for AR
• Image generator (hardware/software)
-camera, sensors, processors etc.
• Display device
-HMD, handheld displays and spatial displays.
• Tracking system
-A few commercial options (virtual reality)
- Many technologies: optical/vision, ultrasonic, radio
frequency, magnetic, mechanical, et al.
This places two performance criteria on the
system. They are:
• Update rate for generating the augmenting
• Accuracy of the registration of the real and
• Augmented Reality improves mobile
usability by acting as the interface itself.
• No eye offset.
• Augmented reality projects can be
expensive to develop and maintain.
• Privacy control will become a bigger issue
than with today’s information saturation
• Performance level is low.
• Shopping- Fill the gap between
the viewing and trying by creating
• Crowd Optic- Know information
about people by just pointing your
mobile phone on them.
+Liked the idea
+Enjoyed it, as a game
+Could use customary target system and training
-Difficulty sighting the AR rifle
-Hard to get HMD to fit and hard to see through it
-Worried about walking into walls
-Poor depth perception
• Still very young and unrefined
O Tracking is still inaccurate
O Portability is just becoming viable
• Still lacking in development
O Still using A Toolkit from 1999
O Devices are still in development
• Diminishing Reality
• Within another 25 years, we should be able to wear a
pair of AR glasses outdoors to see and interact with
photorealistic dinosaurs eating a tree in our backyard.
