Yesterday I gave you an introduction to AR (Augmented Reality) and what is possible with this technology. Today I want to introduce you to FLARtoolKit. FLARToolKit is an ActionScript 3 port of the open source library ARToolKit with which you can build your own AR applications. With FLARToolKit you can build easily great AR applications using Flash/Flex in combination with you favorite 3D Flash Engine which means that thanks to Saqoosha, a Japanese coder, we can experience beautiful AR in our browsers. View Saqoosha’s new year’s greetings in the video or print out a marker and try it yourself.
In the next few weeks I will try myself on the FLARTToolKit and post some examples on how to build AR applications with Flex and Papervision3D.
