Folding Fraktur

July 10, 2014

One of the great selling points of Augmented Reality ( and especially in the case of animated interactive 3D in AR ) is the ultimate freedom to chose your perspective.

A strong example from our Platipus portfolio is an animated explanation of the workings of a roots compressor and the animated explanation of a Nissan Note TPMS system.

Both the roots compressor and the TPMS animation are 3D animations that we created in collaboration with Zwartlicht for Nissan Europe.

Just now we’ve created another very simple and elegant example that demonstrates the “Perspective is everything” principle. It’s a digital version of Coen de Koning’s “Folding Fraktur”.

Take you smart device, install “Platipus AR” from App Store or Play Store. Open “Folding Fraktur” and aim it at our business card;

Navigate through all the characters of the font and notice how there’s only one perfect perspective per character that will make the characters 3D parts align properly. Have fun!

The future Location Based Augmented Reality applications (AR) have to be realised with a combination of location and orientation sensors and computer vision. Such a combination would allow very accurate outdoor location based AR applications.

Metaio is bringing us one step closer to this future with their dedicated hardware Augmented Reality Engine.

This is great. I’m pleasantly surprised by this Augmented Reality application. The app brings your TNT mailbox to life! How cool is that?!
Check out the video. You’ll be amazed.

Now that’s a fun way of storytelling!

Today I discovered that my little daughter has secretly been perfecting the art of drawing within the lines. I’m very proud.

Look at those stars!
