Interactive Dynamic Video for Realistic Interactions in Augmented Reality
Incredible concept for the next step in augmented reality by Abe Davis via upload vr:
At first, IDV looks like a pretty simple concept. Using a traditional camera to record the object in question, Davis observes the tiny vibrations that item will make, causing them to occur himself if necessary. That information is then recorded and applied, and the result is video in which you can grab and pull parts of the object, and have it move in realistic ways. The video above shows the user bending the arms of a wire man, for example, or swaying the leaves on a bush.
Where IDV gets really interesting, however, is when virtual objects are introduced into that video to realistically interact with the environment around them. In the video above, researchers create a simple dinosaur within a paint app, and then bring him into a pre-recorded video of a child’s jungle gym in motion. The dinosaur bounces from wire to holds, making his way down the structure. With every leap, the anticipated vibration on the jungle gym is realistically displayed.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
