augmented reality: adding 3D animation to realtime video
« on: February 26, 2009, 08:13:09 AM »
Basically a 3D image is added in real-time to a video. It does simple computer vision to find that black square platform, then overlays the image with a neat 3D character.

I can think of hundreds of applications for this!

You can find all the software/documentation here:

If anyone tries to do it, please report back! I really want to simulate a 3D CAD image of one of my robots with this, but too busy to try and figure it out ;D

As an opposite example, apple leopard operating system has a web cam feature built in that superimposes your real  time person onto an artificial background for web chats and stuff...

I know that looking at this system is a lot more complex, you can see because it even casts shadows

Almost like a hologram, except you have to wear funny glasses.   :D

The funny glasses are just a video screen , right?

Also can you load a Sketchup 3D model or an Autocad 3D model for that matter
Check out the Roboduino, Arduino-compatible board!

Nice, i can think of many ways this technology could be used in presentations and virtual manufacturing.  Is there any more videos on this?

That is some pretty shiny tech. I sent the link to my brother (who is into 3d graphic design) and he plans to play around with it during spring break.

That is sooooo cool, you can use it to watch tv on a virtual screen, lol.




I would try to configure it to make it look like I am holding fireballs.  ;)

Mother of Science! What will they think of next!

You could bring so many things to life with that equipment!

The technology...it's beautiful....(sniff) I'm gonna cry...
 :D
I think the chauffeur did it.

.......

He did.

I've seen someting like this before a few years ago at an expo. But it was a bit different; they didn't use a marker (the one with black n white squares / marks). Instead, they can somehow anchor the virtual object to actual surrounding objects. So you can place anything anywhere without any special markers.

And to achieve that, the user must also be wearing a gps and some sort of accelerometer to track its head and body position.

They call it ARQuake; Augmented Reality Quake (yes, the game).

Here's the link:

Ooppss sorry my bad... they do use a marker, but only to track the user's thumb.

Here's probably a better page to look at for the same system:

Ok this could make my dreams of a cad program like the one in Ironman a reality!!!!! Take a real time animation of a robot and move it around in real time.... Now if I just had a nice juicy research grant to play with :)

That's exactly what I thought of when I first saw this!
