SnapDragonAR from Future Stories

Mo pointed me to an announcement that SnapDragonAR has been officially released. This comes from work at the future cinema lab at York University. SnapDragonAR is a simple way to get augmented reality – you have a deck of cars with glyphs on them that the computer can recognize and replace with media clips (video shorts or images.) The glyphs can be put on things or you can just use the cards. The sofware then takes the video from a webcam and replaces the glyphs with the media objects you want and projects the resulting “augmented” video onto the screen (or projector.) It is neat and works with any current Mac.
