For the last couple months we here at the basement have been testing and experimenting with augmented reality. Boy can it be finicky!!! We've definitely learned a LOT as a team about the capabilities and limitations of AR.
Today we are finally sending out our Holiday Greeting. If you have a webcam, it's a fun little thing to play with. Following the steps, print out the symbol and point your webcam at it. You should see a 3d stage and a couple characters pop up on top of the print out. You can move the print out around and look at the characters from all angles, or there are 3 songs that you can choose from and the characters will sing to you.
If you don't have a webcam, you can still see what the buzz is about by clicking on the link at the top of the page. It will take you to a video that will show you what we've done. There is so much more to write about this project, but no time for that now. Great work Basement Team! It's been a fun challenge!
Merry Christmas everyone! Hope that your holidays are bright!
