Hello Kitty Book


The virtual Hello Kitty Garden program demonstrates the concept of tangible interaction in Augmented Reality. A catalogue of 3D graphics models is created by attaching a different fiducial marker to each page of a real book and overlaying the computer graphics on the markers using the ARToolkit. The user can pick up, move, or drop the virtual objects by using a virtual paddle, but not the conventional mouse or keyboard. That will give the user a feeling of he/she’s really holding and playing with the virtual objects. That’s also the reason why we named it “the tangible interactive augmented reality”.
