QRCodes, Augmented Reality, ARK, Unity and the iPad
Stuart Eve here in CASA has been working away in the Unity gaming engine in terms of Augmented Reality applications for the iPhone and iPad. As Stewart himself notes it is surprisingly successful and with at least 3 different ways of getting 3D content to overlay on the iOS video feed (Qualcomm, StringAR and UART). He has been attempting to load 3D content at runtime, so that dynamic situations can be created as a result of user interaction – rather than having to have all of the resources (3D models, etc.) pre-loaded into the app. This not only saves on file size of the app, it also means that the app can pull real-time information and data that can be changed by many people at once.
