Will Wright tries out the Five Live of Criss Angel Game developed by Patched Reality.

Five Lives of Criss Angel Augmented Reality Experience Launched

This was a fun project to put together. It’s somewhat unique in the increasingly crowded field of FLARToolkit-based marketing applications out there, as it makes use of the pan, tilt, and roll of the marker as inputs to a game.  For this project, I decided to give the FLARManager a try, mostly for its pretty […]


Patched Reality FLAR Framework

Patched Reality FLAR Framework v0.1 release
