Flash Augmented Reality from Japan

The FLARToolKit is a shape recognition library that you can use in conjunction with Flash and a video camera, and at MAX Japan Saqoosha showed off a great demo.  Check it out!

ARToolKit uses computer vision algorithms to solve this problem. The ARToolKit video tracking libraries calculate the real camera position and orientation relative to physical markers in real time. This enables the easy development of a wide range of Augmented Reality applications. Some of the features of ARToolKit include:


  • Single camera position/orientation tracking.
  • Tracking code that uses simple black squares.
  • The ability to use any square marker patterns.
  • Easy camera calibration code.
  • Fast enough for real time AR applications.
  • SGI IRIX, Linux, MacOS and Windows OS distributions.
  • Distributed with complete source code.
