Sony latest SmartAR technology

Augmented reality has come a long way since we first talked about it two years ago. Though the technology itself remains largely in its experimental phase, its potential for future applications of use is tremendous. Recently, Sony has been working on abit of AR themselves and they call it SmartAR.

This technology enables additional information to be displayed on Sony’s device screens such as virtual objects, or images and texts that cannot be identified by visual perception alone (see video below).

The technology employs the markerless approach, which means users won’t need to use any special markers such as 2D barcodes. The object captured by the camera is quickly recognised and is then tracked at high-speed along with the movement of the camera, as it is displayed over the actual 3D space.
