From Vrml to Augmented reality via panorama-integration and eai-java
SIGraDi’2000 - Construindo (n)o espacio digital (constructing the digital Space) [4th SIGRADI Conference Proceedings / ISBN 85-88027-02-X] Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) 25-28 september 2000, pp. 254-256
The author shows the enhancement of abstract and “sterile” VRML-scenes by integration of panoramas, made from stitched photographs or special panorama cameras. The problem of having only one point of view in a photograph taken from a fixed point can be solved by using a defined, invisible “box” in vrml, which allows a movement of just a few meters, but also turning around and getting a kind of Augmented Reality. The next development of interaction not only in movement is the interactive integration of vr-objects by using EAI-Java-Tools.
