[Video] Augmented reality by Sony

Sony introduced its Smart AR, an augmented reality system capable of using the video sensor of a smartphone and a stereoscopic screen, according to a statement posted on the website of the Japanese. The video below shows a very impressive demonstration. Sony claims to have begun his research into augmented reality systems in 1994, the statement said.

The first models were taking pictures of a bar code, then added the related information. In 1998, a software running on the VAIO PCG-G1 used a 3D bar code named Cyber Code. SmartAR stands of ancient prototypes by the absence of marker. Recognition technologies allow 3D objects not to barcode and track the subject scanned at high speed to continue layering information or images on his movements, the very principle of reality grew.

It is also possible to interact with the added information and a system of image reconstruction can scan large objects it is not possible to capture in one image. The announcement does not yet speak of marketing, but admits this technology to earmark professionals, such as advertisers. It also mentions the game, with no more precision.
