Speakers inside the platform add the appropriate sounds, completing the illusion. In essence the floor becomes a large touch-sensitive screen. There is certainly potential for this type of technology for gaming, training, and entertainment. In time homes could be outfitted with this type of flooring to create the feel of any environment a person could want indoors. AR DISPLAY TECHNOLOGY There are generally three main types of augmented reality displays. They are: 1. Mobile handheld displays. 2.

2. Video spatial displays and Spatial Augmented Reality. 3. Wearable displays. 41 42 CHAPTER 2 The Types of Augmented Reality In this section we’ll explore the three types first and in the following section look at the methods by which we interact with AR. Mobile Handheld Displays Mobile Handheld Displays are best described by holding up a smart phone ­utilizing an AR app and seeing a digital image overlaid through the real-time viewer on the smartphone application. 17). Video Spatial Displays and Spatial Augmented Reality Video spatial displays are utilized by holding up an AR marker to a Web c­ amera which will then show the virtual overlay on a video screen or video monitor.

Adding to this, there is also a camera on the Drone which lets the user view things from the Drone’s point of view and allowing the user to have virtual dogfights with other Drones. Augmented Reality has also been used to enhance concert and theater ­performances. One example is the “Duran Duran Project,” where the band used AR Augmented Reality Today: 2012 on stage to create new effects for the audience. AR is also starting to become new media for interactive movies, but we’ll discuss that in Chapter 3.
