AR Photo Identifier
This augmented reality camera identifies photos and displays content and information connected to that image.
When learning about Unity as a tool to build augmented reality pieces, and using Vuforia Image Targets to display content, I thought of all the photos I have taken since I have gotten into photography. All the different places I have been, and the different cameras I used.
From there I decided to build an AR camera that could identify my photos and display specific information and is associated with it.
I chose a handful of my pictures that I wanted to have prints of and that worked well as image targets, with a high amount of features.
Then we learned how to use a 3D-Scanner to scan objects, and I decided to scan my camera, which I found to be amazingly difficult. The camera was so small with so many intricate gaps in space that made it not the easiest object to scan.
I wanted to add more interaction within the AR app, like a running browser that could pull data off of the internet, other photos from that location, and more features, but time and experience with Unity only allotted so much.
I was really happy with this project. More of a conceptual piece, I want to be able to take this concept and use it in multiple settings. I picture it being used in museums next to pieces of art or objects in place of museum labels.
