NoApp AR Demo - Showing Geolocation hacks added to the JSARToolKit5
Entry for The Stamford Hackathon 16-18 September 2016
The idea is to allow geolocation-only Augmented Reality (AR) in supported web browsers, without any third party apps (No Apps) required. So No AppAR.
How It Works
The current JSARToolKit (ported from the python library) already allows AR in web browsers, but with real-time video detection of markers or limited barcodes. Our hacks use geolocation and geofences to trigger the AR point detection, then allow an image to be displayed at a marker location in 3D space.
How It Was Built
What's next for NoApp AR
The other major current limitation is that the JSARToolKit currently does not support NFT (Natural Feature Tracking) Markers or full photo images, because it is too computationally expensive on the client side.
Apple iPhone and any Android smartphones (or tablets) can run the demo pages (below) with either the Chrome or Firefox browser.

Please note that the geofences are placed from the Stamford Innovation Center (175 Atlantic Street Stamford, CT 06901 lat: 41.052904 lon: -73.539738 to 1544 Bedford Street lat: 41.064597 lon: -73.541436)
