Augmented Reality Chair

SEE VIDEO

This is a chair for overlaying virtual information onto the physical world. This chair, done for Apple Computer, was an augmented reality system that allowed people to extend their desktop to their entire room. Virtual objects could be dragged off the desktop onto any object in the room. A screen hanging off the chair would then overlay that virtual object on that spot in the room. It also allowed a portion of another room to be layered on top of the existing room using QTVR.

Technical Notes: This project was done using a Blue Earth microcontroller, programmed in Basic. The overlay software was created in HyperCard.
