Augmented Reality and iM@S
« on: September 06, 2010, 06:20:07 am »
What is Augmented Reality?
I believe that most of us have heard of what is "AR" (Argumented Reality). For those who never heard of it, here's the definition from Wikipedia:
Quote from: Wikipedia
Augmented reality (AR) is a term for a live direct or indirect view of a physical real-world environment whose elements are augmented by virtual computer-generated imagery.

Mobile Application on AR
Konami has created an application for iPhone, allowing users to take a picture with their "girlfriend" from the popular DS simulation game "Love Plus".

From the picture, We can see  there's a black and white square panel, which allow the AR application on the phone to convert the bar code into a 3D model on the screen.

Some time ago at Wireless Japan 2010, a mobile phone tradeshow held in Tyoko, mobile operator KDDI introduced their new "Sekai Camera ZOOM" application for mobile phones, using the idols as their models. With this technology, objects can be displayed not only limited to a square code, but anywhere of the screen.

A huge Haruka standing between the background and the objects in front of it.

Several idols standing on the booth.

AR = Ami in the Reality!
An AR Ami developed by the fan group "Pai-touch to Ami Realization Commitee" was exhibited at a iM@S Doujinshi sale show held in Sendai city on 9/5/10. Here's the PR video of the project.

Obviously you could tell something from the name of the development team...Let's take a look at what SeriP did to Ami!

You have no idea how fun AR is until you've tried it~

Only reason PS Move interests me. Microsoft Kinnect doesn't look as accurate, or as able to do AR. Loving what they did with Ami~

Sounds interesting... Might start looking for people randomly taking pictures of areas with a white patch thing. XD

This is pretty interesting to see they had done this even before the mobile game.
