See-through Displaying Method for Markerless Augmented Reality


ARScope is a novel interface for various applications of augmented reality. A superimposed image is projected by a head-mounted projector onto a hand-held device covered with retro-reflective material. The background image is transformed into an image that is suitable for the user’s current viewpoint without the use of markers or a head-tracking device.

Markerless Augmented Reality

This research project at the University of California, Santa Barbara presents markerless camera tracking and user interface methodology for readily inspecting augmented reality (AR) objects using a user’s outstretched hand.

Just use a webcam and your bare hand and you’re good to go.
