FLARToolKit: Augmented Reality Test

FLARToolkit Test

Just came across this bad ass AS3 toolkit called FLARToolKit.

“FLARToolkit will detect the marker from an input image and calculate the camera position in the three dimension space” = Augmented Reality!

To sum it up, it allows you to make 3D computer generated objects appear like they are a part of reality.

I originally found out about this technology on the site So I did some research, and figured out how to make my own!

To see the 3D model you will need a webcam, and you will need to either print this symbol, or display it on your phone, or on a separate monitor.

Also check out GE’s smartgrid for a better example of this technology.


Virtual Barrel Of Monkeys!

Virtual Barrel Of Monkeys

Doing a bit more with the AS3 Box2D library. I’ve created a virtual Barrel Of Monkeys! Spawn more Monkeys by clicking the Barrel.

Challenge: Create a bridge of Monkeys connection the two orange balls. I have yet to accomplish this, but I had fun trying. I managed to create a Monkey bridge. Just takes time and patience.

Testing out Box2D


Created a quick “Water” test piece using the AS3 Box2D Library. Start by turning on the Water Flow. Turn on/off the Blur Filter for added effect. Keep it off for better performance, but it looks more like water with it turned on. You can also drop a ball and throw it around with the mouse.
