Virtualizing Glass


This is an augmented reality device in the form of a magnifying glass. It annotates real-world objects in real space. It also serves as an input device and allows users to place virtual annotations in physical space. It as exhibited at Siggraph New York Conference.

Technical Notes: I used VRML for the simulation, Director for the video capture and a PIC chip connected to a Quickcam for the tracking.
