Augmented Reality Sampler

Augmented Reality Sampler 1.0 for android

Description :
Thank you for trying LDM's first experimental stress test Augmented Reality app that will help create apps that let you experience scenes from your favorite books -i.e. 3D AR book illustrations without the need for special hardware, just a camera.

This is not a game. It's a set of stress tests designed to look like AR book scenes and a simple 3D illustration-themed game. Please be aware this is a stress test, using high poly models and lots of effects, designed to push mobile android devices to their limits.

The information learned from this experiment will help build a new AR system just for book illustrations. Please don't judge it by game standards. And please send feedback versus just a rating, to help improve the AR engine being tested. Thank you.

The next experiment will be on Windows 8 (Fall/Winter 2016). At which point this app will be discontinued/removed.

For best performance, see minimum device requirements!

The main purpose of this app is to let you experience two types of AR use, and to perform stress experiments that push the limits of AR on small devices, so please do email actual feedback if it did or did not run on your Android (see minimum requirements). It will help us create better AR experiences for all! Thanks!

Minimum Recommendations:
1 Gig system memory or MORE. 1.3GHz Quad core processor or FASTER. Screen resolution of 1024. Camera of 1.2 - 2 Megapixel with good, SHARP focusing ability. HIGHER screen resolution, or camera meg, or USE of Everyplay during AR requires HIGHER system memory and CPU - or REDUCED time in AR mode (even at fastest game engine speed). NOT ALL IMAGE TARGETS CAN BE RECOGNIZED IF CAMERA FOCUS ABILITY POOR - PERFORMANCE WILL VARY BY DEVICE.

See the website FAQ for details, usage, explanations of features.

More Information:
AR View mode contains 4 AR scenes (4 target images) that you can gently interact with using an AR hand (hand target image).

AR Game mode: you use one image target (Sorcerer's Secretary book cover), point your camera, and it releases an AR physics shooter game into your room - touch the target and the firing starts automatically (just on and off, no need to keep pushing). Easy to do, but with real 3D physics and time counting down, difficult to master!

For the life-size, static Wickerman model, use the Shinigami Detective Bureau book cover (printed 8.5 by 11 inch).

The Sampler will point you to the URLs containing the images, it is suggested you print out the images or view them on a different device, such as a Nook, tablet or computer monitor, especially for AR Game mode.

With your support, LDM hopes to learn how far easily accessible Android devices with no special h/w can be pushed using current AR s/w, and then use that knowledge to create AR applications that enhance the book reading experience for everyone, adding a new level of interactivity to books, media, and other forms of entertainment.

Please Augment Your Reality Safely!

Please use this app responsibility. The app is intended to be used in a stationary position - the AR works best when target images are lying flat. Do not use while driving or other moving vehicles. Do not use as a passenger in a vehicle if there is a good chance of driver distraction. Do not use while physically moving if there is a chance of distraction that could lead to injury.

The AR Sampler is intended for general audiences, but parental guidance is suggested since the app does contain images a few people might find disturbing - and the advertisements are also for a general audience. Parental discretion is advised.

More information about the app, including the AR modes (view and game mode), the sketch-style mini-game, the Hands image targets (PDF download), as well as frequently asked questions, and of course, all that legal stuff (like privacy, EULA, terms, etc.) can be found on the LDM website/blog, at www.littledogsmedia.com.

Recent changes:
v1.3 Thank you for supporting this experiment into AR. Please do email feedback so we can continue to improve the AR experience on Android devices.

Update: Bonus part updated so that fullsize model will move/walk under user control (will require watching one bonus ad video, if available) + intro screen
Also: per feedback, dialogs (logo button, engine button) will now automatically close after user clicks selection. Can still also close dialogs by clicking logo or engine button again.
