Pilot AR System in Testing

We are now testing a pilot AR system, working on the Layar platform.  The following screenshots show an early user-interface for the AR applications itself.

In its current inception, buttons offer links to more information on specific species as well as campus specific data (both collated by project students from the College of Life and Environmental Sciences) as well as links to further information from sources such as Wikipedia.

This video link also demonstates how the link functions to an individual user.

More points of interest and data – especially in multimedia format – are being added over the coming days.  We anticipate a total of around 30 POIs before initial pre-pilot testing with project students over the coming days.

Keep an eye on the blog for more updates!
