Mobile augmented reality : Experiments and installations

Augmented Reality presents a lot of opportunities for remediation of traditional media. AR is a new medium which combines context and data and makes for a truly ubiquitous experience. At digital heritage group, we wanted to find unique and usable ways to use AR for traditional media and its application in various segments such as Art, Entertainment, Storytelling, Film , Movies and Transmedia experiences.

Details

The digital heritage working group at Georgia Tech was formed to create innovative prototypes. Together we created series of augmented reality experiences that would act as a guideline to AR designers. It will also help developers of Argon understand the need of designers. We were also crucial in getting features into the ARweb browser standards. Some of which include audio, spatial sounds, jquery support, video panoramas and more. Most of the projects are aimed at real world applications and can be in and around Atlanta,USA and Metz, France.
