Webcam Augmented Reality

Webcam AR, also known as Magic Mirror AR, is ideal for experiences that take place at a home computer, an in-store kiosk, or a trade show booth. Patched Reality has developed a large number of webcam AR experiences and games. These applications make use of a traditional webcam or a 3D-sensing cam such as a Kinect Camera  or Creative Interactive Gesture Camera, attached to a desktop computer. The experience can be delivered either through a web page using Adobe Flash, or through a native PC or Mac application. As with mobile AR, the types of augmentable objects and content displayed to the user are quite flexible. With webcam AR, one can also augment the viewer, such as their face/head, hands, or whole body.
