VU­FO­RIA BY QUAL­COMM

Gadgets and Gizmos (India) - - TEST BENCH -

Tak­ing aug­mented re­al­ity to the next level, Vu­fo­ria, an aug­mented re­al­ity plat­form, will al­low user to ac­cess more in­for­ma­tion by point­ing their de­vice at a real world ob­ject. Qual­comm, along with Sesame Work­shop, has de­vel­oped and dis­played a pro­to­type play­set for kids that makes the tra­di­tional board game much more in­ter­ac­tive and en­ter­tain­ing. Us­ing Sesame Street char­ac­ters—cookie Mon­ster, Bert and Ernie—the sto­ries come alive with these lov­able pro­tag­o­nists trans­form­ing them into in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ences. This is achieved by point­ing the tablet’s (with Vu­fo­ria AR) cam­era to­wards the char­ac­ters.
