Sculpt-AR: An Augmented Reality Interaction SystemDownload Android
SculptAR is a system created for the interaction of users and virtual objects to build art sculptures using augmented reality. It can be used with any device equipped with a camera to display a virtual environment on its screen, where the user can interact by tapping on the display. SculptAR bases itself on AR markers in order to provide a physical reference of the real space where the virtual environment is going to be created. There are three different sets of markers that define which type of sculpture can be created: the Particle System mode, composed of smoke, spark, spray and flare particles, which allows parameter modifications; a Palm Tree mode, with LEGO-like blocks to build a palm tree; and the Fried Sculpture mode to create a Fried sculpture.
The interface is designed to be simple and consistent in a way that there is a general flow of actions: the user selects a tool, aims at an object with a pointer and taps the screen to perform the operation.
