assassins go AR
No, this won’t be about violent computer games. I guess it’s more a summer gap issue, but a nice new demo can be seen on the assassin’s creed 2 website. It’s a 3rd person jump-and-sneak 3D game (if you don’t know the first one). Once you’ve seen the trailer you can get to an AR demo: the left button brings up a new website with another AR solution embedded in flash. A printed marker (or displayed on an iphone) will reveal first items from the game in 3D floating in your hand. It’s nice to see more and more AR applications that can run natively (well, Flash…) in your browser without any installs. So, let’s hope for more things to come that bring us hardware accelleration for browsers, like googles O3D.
