Last February I built a working mock-up of what I hope will eventually be an augmented reality greeting card-creating web application. Currently the site has only one greeting card and there is no functionality to create new card designs. It was a project I originally took on to explore building Flex applications using the AR toolkit. It was also an opportunity to design a unique web application interface. The idea that inspired the project was the possibility of creating a web application that would make it easy for anybody to easily create augmented reality content. It’s an idea that has kept me interested in the project ever since, even though I am stumped by the technical problems that stand in the way. I believe that if creating AR content was made simple the web community would invent useful, entertaining and social applications for the technology. In July I presented the presentation above at a Spoilrr Meet-Up about what I’ve built so far and where I’d like the project to go from here.
