Avatar meets AR with ARTag

Mr Web Roo got a ping from his brother who is a 3d designer amongst other things to say check out this augmented reality demo from artag.net
Well we did, as it is very impressive in that it just works and can use very low tech cameras to achieve the effect.
It struck me that it might be interesting to not just augment reality, but augment the virtual, but equally real metaverse experience. In this case Second Life.
So I did. I did not bother with lighting, tripods or very much else, and this did prove a little awkward.
However, Avatar met AR and has sparked a lot of thought now.
In particular around what a HUD actually is and the potential to Augment and mash virtual worlds together. Its a long thread of discussion, more later.
