On Poking Mangos

I sorta forgot that I had a website. Here’s some fun tidbits from a talk I did last fall about augmented reality.

Poke-a-Mango
Straight-forward example of gyroscope & camera view to achieve visual AR similar to that in Pokémon GO.

Bespoke á Mango
Marker-based AR tracking using the tried and true Vuforia plugin.

Bokeh Mango
The same type of tracking but applied to what I call the “magic window” effect.

Okay, Mango!
3D markers because we can!

Polka Mango
Some markerless fun with Kudan. Easily broken but oh so compelling!

Virtual Reality Time Travel in Toronto

Recently I had the pleasure of helping realise a neat virtual reality project with AWE Company in Toronto. Users visiting the Fort York National Historical Site will be able to “see through time” across the entire fort grounds using a VR headset. Virtual recreations of historical events are matched with real-world locations using Google’s Project Tango, AWE Company’s proprietary tech, and the Unity engine.

The project should be available to the public this summer (2015).
