Augmented Reality at Gewista Plakatparty 2010

We have just updated our website and added a new section since we have been working on some augmented reality stuff. About two and a half weeks ago, we were at the Gewista Plakatparty 2010 showing off a project we have been working together with Gewista and :3C! vidision: The Augmented Reality CityLight.

The citylight itself was stuffed with a 40 inch flatscreen and an HD camera and we decided to do an augmented version of the well-known and popular wooden labyrinth game. To control the position and rotation of the labyrinth, the user had to use a marker printed on a cardboard.

It was actually really funny watching people try our game after spending quite some effort on it to deliver the best playing experience possible. The game also features a highscore system that displays the times and images of the top three players (since it captures an image of every player before the games starts, this is possible).

Quite a few of the 2000-3000 people that attendeed the Plakatparty battled each other to get to the top scores. If I remember correctly, the top score was around 6.3 seconds. Btw, as you might have already guessed, we have an internal Rarebyte highscore that was not displayed at the event which is 4.73 seconds :p

Man, this event was one hell of a party – they had everything you might think of, no wishes unsatisfied. Concerning the AR solution(s), we are really looking forward to creating some more amazing stuff, maybe in the near future.

If you are interested in creating augmented reality (AR) applications – no matter the purpose – do not hesitate to contact us! Check out some more pictures of the event on our website.

“The Biggest Loser – Abspecken im Doppelpack” is a series on the german tv station kabel eins. It now has a dedicated iPhone app that we developed for Independent Arts Software and that was published by SevenOne Intermedia.
