MPEG Augmented Reality Tutorial at Web3D conference, in LA

During the 2012 edition of Web3D conference, collocated with Siggraph in LA, we presented, for the first time worldwide, the MPEG AR tutorial. Games and applications such as ARQuiz and Augmented Books were demonstrated as well. MPEG AR is currently based on TOTEM formalism for scene description, sensor communication and user interaction.

Demonstration of the ARQuiz at MPEG plenary in Geneva, April 2012

The ARQuiz is an augmented reality game for mobile devices, fully implemented by using MPEG technologies. Like any quiz, the game consists in answering questions over a given period of time.

MPEG folks played a version of ARQuiz called MPEG100 ARQuiz containing several questions about the MPEG life.
