1. SU­PER Charge

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.


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

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

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

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.
