AR Civil Engineering

Also, I think it is far more interesting to move the webcam with moving the marker, rather then using the stationary webcam in the labtop.

I really need to purchase software so I can do a screen capture longer then 30 seconds.  11:30pm -pd

Ar for toys

February 23, 2010 Comments off

I like how metaio in this video uses AR to show kids what the final toy looks like.   The picture is on the box regardless, but if used instructionally, this could be a really interesting way to teach kids how to build things.

Coke Avatar (AVTR) ar website: networking AR experiences together

February 16, 2010 Comments off

Plugin for augmented reality ( metaio ) does not work on macs.   This is why I really encourage people to build platform agnostic systems.

I do like how the marker in this instance has a steering affordance. I think this was acheived with tweening and a delay of the animation. Makes sense for flying objects.

It would be really cool if you could network with another person over facebook, or any other social site where you could have a shootout of sorts.  Network worlds! why not?

By combining Skype like video chat, with AR, I think some very interesting user experience for gaming could be achieved on a simple interaction level.

(my) QR talk at Smithsonian

Expert Patrick Donnelly, presents to the Smithsonian about how QR and AR technologies could create an immersive and integrated media experience on a mobile platform to enhance user experience (UX).  wow. YEP- thats me.

Note: These are “comps” I created for my talk. Images were used for conceptual frameworks, and are not being used profit.

AR experiments: Squid

Good with switching in dae files.  Need to work on texturing still.   Might color markers to allow for them to blend in more.

AR for Smart Proposals: Naming opportunities for Higher Education, and Construction Documents

February 2, 2010 Comments off

My idea here is to present ( with my 30 second screen shot software ) how traditional proposals can be combined with Augmented Reality elements to enhance the User Experience (UX).  Allow client to “hold” the 3d building they are about to purchase or sign for.  Let them take the proposal home, give them a url, and allow them to experience the 3d model you built/designed with a webcam and flash application. If this one small box can mean the difference between a client signing on the line, I think this could be a very easy “value add”.

This just seems natural to me.

Obviously, this demo used poor marker tracking and model, but I think the concept is there.  Note, the AR experience also will allow for composited information.  Additional information not listed on the spec sheet, such as timelines, or a basic balance sheet could stream from a URL to your AR experience.  There are many possibilities that can be customized to a clients needs.  I think this could be very powerful in civil and mechanical engineering industries.
