How is Augmented Reality being used today? Check out these exciting examples to give you insight and inspiration for your own projects
1. SUPER Charge https://bit.ly/2xqabtl
Running on the prototype browsers Webaronarcore and Webaronarkit this is a great experiment to show the visual capabilities, giving you a super power to unleash a ball of energy in your surroundings.
2. WORLD heritage SUNKEN VESSEL https://bit.ly/2kyebz7
Built for the UNESCO World Heritage Site ‘Prehistoric Stilt Buildings around the Alps’, this gave visitors to the Vienna Ball of Science 2018, an insight into cultural heritage by revealing a sunken vessel.
3. Enargy https://bit.ly/2lgbcfo
This experimental project allows the phone’s camera to be pointed at an appliance to see how much energy it was using by hooking up to data from smart plugs that power the appliance. This was built using A-frame, showing the sophistication that can be achieved with the library.
4. a-frame CHESS https://bit.ly/2xt9cxg
Using Ar.js for A-frame, this is a nice demo of games creation. Even if this isn’t fully functional at the moment, it wouldn’t take a massive leap forward to make this into something that could be a lot of fun.
5. arte https://bit.ly/2iyqvkm
Another great piece of work from Nexus Interactive Studios, this time it uses two AR markers – one to show 3D scans from The Louvre and the second to bring up the interface for browsing.
