I think I know where you're going with that comment, Jim... and I fully approve.

We are talking about 3d whale porn, right?

Thinking out loud:

If I put tracking markers on my underwear..........then uploaded a 3D whale model.............

I don't really get what does this exactly do, can someone explain it to me? :C

It's actually pretty cool.

I have done some work with this and pitched to an agency client of mine for one of their clients tradeshows.
Doing some 'product' floating interactive print stuff.

There is a good bit that could still be refined and added to this companies offering, but it currently does have some pretty solid uses.
Animation is pretty lacking.....but this feels 1st gen, so I am sure they will be developing it more.

Yeah, I think it's a cool tech. Nothing ground-breaking, but could be useful in some circumstances. I like how you can move the objects. I haven't seen that before.

I did some work with this while in Brighton.

It's definitely exciting and going in the right direction but there are quite a few issues with the (specific) tech (we used).

Model & texture size limits, animation etc, left a lot to be desired. You're basically holding up a smartphone or a tablet, capturing an image with the camera, and then the software is carrying out instructions based on that image: ie. rendering a model or loading a model and making it play an animation etc... So streaming & bandwidth & GPU/CPU & wifi limitations all applied to the 3D aspect you were implementing...

Definite 1st gen vibes... Will be looking into it more in the future I guess.

Also, on a side note, this is totally what I thought google glass would be using. Like futuristic heads-up displays, looking at a Nike/QR code logo would render some 3D advertising in perspective or some shit. But I guess we'll wait a few more years :)
