Augmented Reality Workshop 增强现实工作坊

Professor: John Craig Freeman

Workshop meets: April 18 to 22, 14:00 to 17:00, K11 art village Wuhan, Building 2, Central Business Street, Changqing Garden, Dongxihu District, Wuhan (A1 Exit, Changqing Garden Station, Metro Line 2) / K11艺术村,武汉市东西湖区常青花园中央商业街2号楼(地铁2号线常青花园站A1出口)

This workshop provides a hands-on introduction to geo-located augmented reality.

这个持续的工作坊活动提供了一个可参与实际操作的机会,让大家可以了解到基于地理定位的增强现实技术。

Geo-located Augmented Reality allows people to experience alternative realities at site specific locations. The public can simply download and launch a free mobile app and aim their devices’ cameras at the surrounding physical place. The application uses location detection technology to superimpose virtual objects, people or scenes at precise GPS coordinates, enabling the user to immerse themselves in the work as if they existed in the real world.

基于地理定位的增强现实能够让人们在某些特定场合体验平行实境。人们只需下载安装一款免费手机软件,并将手机摄像头对准周围环境即可实现。手机应用通过定位技术可以在精确的GPS坐标下加入虚拟的物体、人物或者场景,使用户得到在如同真实世界的环境中的沉浸式体验。

Participation Requirements:

If possible, each participant should bring a late model mobile device (iPhone, Android smartphone or iPad) equipped with a camera, GPS, compass, accelerometer, and mobile Internet or Wi–Fi connection.

Access to a late model laptop with an Internet connection is helpful.

Advanced participant should have access web servers space and a database. If no institutional support for databases is available, participant must signup for a third–party web hosting provider. I recommend GoDaddy. The host must allow unrestricted FTP (file transfer protocol) access to at least 40 MB of web servers space and a dedicated MySQL database (client version: 5.1.49 or later) running phpMyAdmin (version: 3.3.10.4 or later).

参与要求:

 每一个参与者需要携带一个较新的移动设备(如iPhone、安卓智能手机或iPad),该设备需装备有摄像头、GPS、指南针、加速计,并可连接移动网络或Wi-Fi。

每一个参与者需要有一台较新的、可连接互联网的电脑。

已具有良好基础的参与者需要连接网络服务器空间以及一个数据库。如果没有组织机构可提供数据库的支持,参与者需要在第三方网页提供主机上进行注册。本人推荐GoDaddy,该主机必须允许无限制FTP(文件传输协议)连接至一个至少有40兆的网页服务器空间,以及一个专门的MySQL数据库(客户版本号:5.1.49或更新版本)来运行phpMyAdmin(版本号:3.3.10.4或更新版本)。


Getting Started:
