How Desktop AR Works
Desktop AR is an augmented reality system that turns an ordinary 2D monitor into a volumetric display. It brings virtual objects into the real-world using a webcam and anaglyph glasses.
Holo-SDK is an augmented reality software development kit (AR SDK) for Desktop AR, so that VR/AR developers can make various Desktop AR applications or Holo-APP with ease.
Track user's head positions
Holo-SDK works by tracking the user's viewing position using a webcam. Then it uses the head position to adjust the virtual cameras.
Render scene to match user's perspective
The system renders 3D images according to a user's viewing position. Therefore, users can see around 3D objects.
Apply 3D effect
3D shaders will be applied to the rendered images. The 3D scenes can be rendered as red-blue images in the Anaglyph 3D mode or side-by-side format for passive & active 3D displays.
