What’s next for Augmented Reality? (Demo Table 3)

Demonstration
Cherry Thian, Asian Civilisations Museum, Singapore

The ACM has spent the last 2 years working with research institutions and technology companies to develop a more robust indoor AR solution. This new AR engine:
1. recognises and tracks 3D objects in three dimensions and their orientation regardless of size
2. has greater tolerance in low-light environments
3. displays and integrates 3D content seamlessly with the objects on display, regardless of orientation or the angle from which the user views
4. positions 3D content on a museum object.

This technology is still being refined but the prototype has been a great success. This 3D tracking and pose estimation technology gives possibilities for museums to dream of application.
