Augmented Reality (AR) is getting bigger than expected and its users specially the mobile users are getting a hand of it so easily. Simply downloading Apps from either the playstore or appstore (or any other resources). There are actually tons of great AR Apps already available out there.
Though there’s something not so yet stable – the WEB AR. Yah there’s AR.JS, JSARToolKit, trackingJS, AWe, Etc. that somehow works but still limited in terms of the following:
Marker design is still the QR code alike which is not so good in branding
The marker is so sensitive and should be seen in full before augmented objects will show
The marker is very limited on skew & rotation making the augmented objects disappear from time to time if the skew limit is reached.
Some web AR tracking only do 2D tracking
Non of it works on mobile (or very limited on mobile)
Also, most people uses google chrome or firefox to view websites, social networking sites, etc. And users specially bloggers uses wordpress, joomla, drupal, and other web CMS.
The missing link is – “How can a user create an AR experience and connect it to his/her website by simply providing a linked”, “How can users share AR easily – its best by using the web or socialmedia site and just provide link to the AR experience”.
My solution 🙂 – introducing OPEN Augmented Reality
OpenAR – is a platform where AR will be easily accessible by user as it is web enabled allowing users to just create an AR experience (drag & drop) and share it using a URL link that he/she will post on his/her website, social networking wall/page, then the other users will just click the link and voila “AR experience” will be shown (without downloading another AR App on their mobile phone or desktop)
A “dead simple” scheme that will make everything easy for everyone to experience Augmented Reality (later Virtual & Mixed Reality)

Well, this is just another just for fun project i am working with (along with some of my colleagues). The purpose is to first ofcourse see beautiful and gorgeous female models hehe. But foremost, the main purpose is to help them out by giving them great opportunities.
Flaunt360 will going to be something like an online magazine app for models and brand ambassadors, where they will be earning as content owner – not like facebook (etc) that don’t share earnings to deserving content owners.
Also, aside from the earnings – this will help them on other stuffs such as free training of digital photography, conceptualizing arts, and many others. Also, will let them even earn, even they are no longer active doing poses and photoshoots as they may have aged or no longer capable to do flaunt. Still flaunt360 will give them passive income.
So why are we doing it? Well, we just really loved them 🙂
Well, this is just another just for fun project by me and my team. Nothing special though (yet) hehe 🙂 – is it AR? Nope… VR? Nope… BCI? Nope… Another spotify? Nope… Another youtube? Nope… Another facebook? Nope… Another google? Nope…
Team Mobility will be doing University & Mall Tour for PlaystationVR, Moverio, BrainControlInterface, LeapMotion and Voice Control Tech. Teaming up with Microsoft Hour of Code, ARPH & SmartGlassPH, BCIPH, Mage-Tech, Creotek and Blastasia – See our booth and experience awesome future technologies 🙂#mobility#magetech#blastasia#creotek#microsoftNE
As we tried out and experienced this very cool device here is what we can say about it
> Tracking tracking tracking – damn! It’s just a piece of device w/o any external gadget requirement that tracks the environment & objects around you. Almost No-latency (maybe if w/ tons of contents hehe) With its hi-precise positional tracking, click/tap switch, bloom-switch, voice command, voice recognition (there’s a lot more to explore) – its one of a kind
> Graphics – Yoh – well, we haven’t really tried too much environment and 3d objects but it has a great potential on showing off – powered by an Intel Atom CPU, then a GPU and this new processing unit the Holographic one (HPU).
> Usages: Well i can say most of the things that VR & AR can do. The immersive interface makes it high above the others tech.
> Wireless! this one in un-tethered – no cable needed (maybe just a powerbank if you want to use it longer than four (4) hours.
> Use cases: Well – as we can all see out there in videos/ photos/ blogs – yah it can be used in many ways and in a very intuitive awesome UI.
> What’s next? Well – here it goes – DEVELOPMENT TIME 🙂 ill post the apps we will be creating.
Once again the team conquered another University in the Philippines – De Lasalle State University. We showcased Augmented Reality, Virtual Reality, SmartGlass and Brain Control Interface Technologies 🙂 Special Thanks to EPSON with its Smartglass MOVERIO for making the event more exciting 🙂
