Virtual objects can be dissected and explored with related information

AUGMENTED REALITY (AR) has been integrated into other technologies for decades now, but is still perceived as a relatively new and innovative software concept due to its still largely unexplored potential.

Using a live view of a physical, real-world environment that is augmented via computer generated sensory input, AR allows virtual 3D renderings to be manipulated by hand and thus aid development across a variety of design industries.

3D technology firm Inition - which specialises in augmented and virtual reality, gestural interaction and 3D printing - invited us on a tour around its studio in East London this week and we got to see some of the firm's innovative 3D technologies in action.

The concept demonstrated relies on the use of special patterned markers that tell the software what 3D images to project onto the screen so virtual objects can be dissected and explored with related information in a way not possible in real life. µ
