Interlude Activity – Augmented Reality Browser Demo

Such is the power of today’s web browsers, on smartphones as well as laptops, that it’s possible to run a simple augmented reality demo in your phone or laptop browser using just the code contained in a small javascript library.

DO: visit the online Github code repository jeromeetienne/threex.webar. You can run the demo in several ways:

  • if you have a laptop computer with a camera, make a copy of the registration marker image, either by printing it or grabbing a photograph of it with a smartphone and then show the marker to the demo page;
  • load the demo page on your smartphone, allow the page to make use of the phone camera, and then use it to view the marker image displayed on a computer screen or the screen of someone else’s smartphone.

What enabling technologies made the threex.webar demonstration possible?
