So have been learning to use Unity recently, which is an awesome program but a little complicated for what I have been trying to do. But I came across this wonderful start-up developing a Augmented/Mixed Reality platform called Zap Works. It makes the whole process of creation very easy and linking up stored files with the Zappar (think QR code) app on a mobile is straight forward and works seamlessly. For the simpler stuff I will be using this rather than Unity I think.
whether it is through Google Glasses, Magic Leap, ORA-X or a microchipped contact lens – the world will start to have a digital overlay starting this year – think Pokemon Go without having to point your phone.
I particularly like the idea of the “guide animal” steering you along your journey – mashing Indian/Aboriginal dream guides with modern tech. Love it.
updated animation of the Zappar girl – part of a wee mixed reality project, coming soon!
Continuation of the Mixed Reality (MR) project and a new opening animation – Zapper Girl – check out the eyes.
Have just signed up to the ‘creators’ portal on Magic Leap. Having a look at SDK today. Looks like exciting stuff.
