How do You Augment Reality?

Have also done some experimentation about how three dimensional visualizations can be overlaid on physical environments, with thoughts especially to retail contexts. Here is one such example, the Jiim system at the Australian Centre for Visual Technologies (ACVT). Here is an enlightening video of how it can be used.

' ... Jiim is a system developed at the Australian Centre for Visual technologies which allows the user to create 3D models while they capture video. This has a number of applications, but perhaps most interestingly means that a user might be able to perform 3D modelling within an Augmented Reality system. This would mean that real and synthetic (augmented) geometry would be able to interact, without the need for pre-existing 3D models of the scene. The video shows a few examples of this application. .... '
