Simplest FLARToolKit example ever?

FLARToolKit is said to be slow, but exactly how slow is it? To answer this question, I had to write the most simple bare bones FLARToolKit example ever :) It has neither trix to speed it up, nor complex 3D content to slow it down.

update: source updated to FLARToolKit svn head; it can work with 2.5.4 download if you remove param.setValue() call, line 48.

Did you ever tried to imagine what would rotation of impossible rectangle look like? Well, these guys did but, with all due respect, their results are ugly. I thought I could do better than that, so tonight I made this:

Spherize filter

Last night I was thinking of ways to create “fish eye” effect with flash 3D engines, and decided that Pixel Bender is the way to go. However, two things I’ve found on the internet did not make it look the way I wanted, so I ended up creating my own “spherize” filter:

Of course, it is not limited to 3D – you are free to use it in any other way, too. Continue reading ‘Spherize filter’

Animated 3D Pythagoras tree

This is (re)animation of last year experiment that I have been playing with over the holidays. Now you can see great diversity of this fractal in real time:

Unity3D and FLARToolKit steering wheel test

Now that there is free windows version of unity3d, everyone has to try it out. Inspired by this experiment, and having ready FLARToolKit steering wheel code from one of recent projects, I did this:

I’m not exactly the best modeller in the world, and I still suck at unity scripting, but I still think this is pretty good demo, so go ahead and give it a try :) Print this marker sheet beforehand. Continue reading ‘Unity3D and FLARToolKit steering wheel test’

AS3 sandy branch final release

While sandy 3.1.2 release is pending official announcement, I decided to drop a collection of my various statements on subject combined in one post. Continue reading ‘AS3 sandy branch final release’

Augmented reality and QR codes

This is basically proof-of-concept that this is already possible in flash, today. What you do is take saqoosha’s FLARToolKit, add keno’s QR code reader, and load results into 3d engine (in this case, kiroukou’s sandy).

Clicky to see PoC

It doesn’t require webcam, just click to upload your test image. It also makes use of saqoosha’s PixelBender homography transform filter, since keno’s reader apparently doesn’t do that on its own (and generally is very sensitive to input bitmap, I must add). Default image comes from here.
