Augmented Reality Virtual Pet on the iPhone

2009 December 14th


The guys from Georgia Tech Augmented Environments Lab (GVU Center) are working on an awesome augmented reality application for the iPhone. Augmented Reality (AR) is basically a technology that deals with the combination of the real-world and computer-generated data, in real time, and can be interactive.

In this AR Virtual Pet application for the iPhone, first a marker is placed on a surface, and then the iPhone’s camera is focused on the marker. Through the iPhone’s screen you then will see a 3D virtual pet pop up from the marker, as if the pet was on the surface where the maker was placed. Watch the video below for a demonstration, it’s pretty awesome.
