Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is hot property at the moment. Using Motion Capture and modeling you can create amazing animations in a full 3D environment.

We just used some in a pitch and the client was blown away.

Until recently you needed to spend a good amount of money to get the most out of AR.

That’s just changed.

Using only a webcam and the latest version of Papervision / FLARToolkit library, Digital Pictures have taken their character from the desktop to the desk.

It’s offers a new and exciting way to interact with flash content. The possibilities are wide open.

Having messed around with AR for the last 3 months I’ve gotta say that getting this working in Flash is a mightily impressive achievement.
