Augmented Reality (AR) with Alex Shynkarenko


Alex Shynkarenko is a student at the YMCA Academy.

I started working on augmented reality about 3 years ago when I was researching game development and playing with my web cam (http://www.extendedreality.com/webcam_game_motion_bubbles.html)

AR can be EASY!

Getting Started


What you Need


For the Basics



To Create Your Own
Sketchup (http://sketchup.google.com/download/gsu.html)
Sketchup ARSights Plug-in(http://www.inglobetechnologies.com/en/products/arplugin_su/info.php)

Use it in Any Grade

Early grades - Used to display different shapes, or to draw picture and make them come to life
Later grades - Used for Building designs, 3d mapping and art pieces

RESOURCES (Please download these before you come to the conference. If you don't, we will have the installers on a memory key for you at the conference.)


ARSights Here you will find: the ARSights application, downloadable 'marker' and placemarks
Google SketchUp - This 3D modelling tool is easy to use to create objects or buildings.

AR Using Google SketchUp

SketchUp is a 3d modeling tool for anyone from children playing around or a professional designer making a 5 star hotel.
and with AR we are able to make that creation come to life.
