How does an augmented reality application work?
Augmented Reality (AR) is a digital technology that overlays text, images, video, 2D/3D graphics and animations over physical objects or printed content. To make it simple, it’s a live straight or secondary view of a real-world situation whose features are “augmented” by computer-generated inputs as mentioned above.
What is the difference between marker based AR and marker-less AR?
Marker type AR uses a marker to trigger a response in the device when pointed at it. From Real estate to the entertainment industry, Marker type can be used to create visual triggers to engage the audience better. Markerless AR on the other hand, uses Geo-location to create an environment that is similar to the real world.There are no Markers present. An example of this is the game “Pokemon Go” which uses geolocation to create maps to find Pokemons.
What is the future for marker based AR with the arrival of ARkit?
ARkit introduced by Apple helps developers create AR apps which will integrate digital experiences into the physical world. By being a major purveyor for AR, it will create a huge awareness of AR among the general purpose. Marker type AR is still going strong after the introduction and is expected to be used widely. Good news for Android users is that Google has come out with ARcore which will be able to support 100 million devices.
