We can expand your project | Augmented RealityTo understand in a simple way what Augmented Reality is you first need to know about Virtual Reality. You can find some information about it in our section.
In short, a Real Time System uses the same technology as video games. But, in contrast to static infographics, or closed animations that always repeat themselves, a Real Time System is completely free. It's a virtual world placed in front of our eyes that you can interact with and move through. So after a project has been programmed and produced as a Real Time System, Augmented Reality consists of joining the completely virtual world with our real world.
Joining both worlds
In order to join the virtual world with reality two elements are absolutely essential.
The first one is to calculate the point of view and vanishing points in real time as they are seen through a camera or augmented reality glasses. Real time tracking is vital for synchronising the virtual world with the real world. This means the perspective of the two worlds have to coincide so they can be interpreted as being in the same place.
Then second concept needed is a peripheral device to capture both worlds at the same time. In this case it can be a camera, web cam, augmented reality glasses or anything that records the real world and can superimpose the virtual world on top of it. A visual code in the real world is also needed so our system can recognise where to place the virtual world, and which part of the virtual world should be placed.
In short, Augmented Reality is the union of the real world with virtual information. Imagine having a code in an advertisement and when someone points a camera at it an entirely virtual model appears over the magazine, newspaper or other publication.
We're also developing this technology to use in websites with web cams, IPhone or IPad and mobile devices with video cameras.
