mobile augmented reality for poets & other non-programmers

October 1st, 2010

Here’s my proposal for a hands-on bootcamp workshop: I’d like to teach interested folks how to create their own mobile augmented reality experiences quickly, easily and with no programming skills required.

Mobile augmented reality (AR) turns your mobile phone into a magic lens that reveals hidden stories about the world.┬áIn this workshop you will learn the basics of building mobile AR experiences for the iPhone & Android phones, using easy web-based tools that do not require any programming experience. The specific tools I’ll teach are the Layar mobile AR platform and the companion Hoppala authoring tool. The two requirements you’ll need are a laptop with web access, and an iPhone 3Gs (or later) or a 3G Android phone with internal GPS and compass (most of them).

Sound like fun? Here’s an example screenshot from a layer we did for the 01SJ Biennial last month:

    I’m in too as I can see how useful it will be for small museums.

    Just installed Layar & would like a 01SJ Biennial report since I didn’t make it down for that.
