QR Code Calibrated To Provide Mobile Augmented Reality

Author: | Posted: May 4th, 2011 | Category: Marketing | 2 Comments »

I just saw great video on YouTube by Nikolaos Tsouknidas, which is demonstration of his graduation project. It consist how QR codes can be calibrated with the user’s position in a mobile AR system.

The gravitational and compassing sensors of the device take over after the initial calibration, to calculate exactly where the user is looking at inside the augmented panorama. Augmented objects like images, video and sounds can then be attached. The calibration technique using a 2d barcode is intuitively done, and user generated content can then be created for a certain QR-Code location, so when a different user scans the same tag, the content will be downloaded. The main target is social networking Augmented Reality, and locative data sharing.

You can see how far we can go using QR codes to link online content to anything.
