UVR Lab. was formed
in Feb. 2001 at GIST to study and develop “Virtual Reality in Smart
computing environments” that process multimodal input, perceive
user’s intention and emotion, and respond to user’s request through
Augmented Reality. Since 2012, UVR Lab moved to KAIST GSCT and restarted
with a theme of “FUN in Ubiquitous VR.”
We implemented "Digilog Book" by using our maker-less tracking method. As shown in the video, we overlaid 3D models onto each page to provide Augmented Reality experience to users. The system worked in real-time; more than 30 fps in modern PCs or laptops. And it can support more than 300 pages (the maximum number is not tested yet) without losing real-time performance.
This video shows a simple extended version that exploits virtual buttons attached onto each page. Two virtual buttons work for triggering animations of 3D models.
