No, not one of these:
Gregory Scalet of the Indiana University-Purdue University Fort Wayne (IPFW) has put together a Augmented Reality research project concentrating on 9th Century Frescoes and their visualizations in the 21st century.
Scalet was able to construct a 3D model of the scanned images of the Frescoes using Maya, a popular 3D modeling tool. He then integrated the model into a junaio Channel, using a basic (but original) marker to display the experience . This kind of interface is perfect for people who want to explore 3D models in real-time and real-space.
If you would however like to explore it in real-real-space, you can do what Greg did and attach your iPad 2 to the dashboard of your car. After Greg anchored the model to a physical location using junaio’s GPS & location-based development features, he was able to literally drive through and around the 3D model while exploring it from his car. Please don’t try this at home unless you 1) have very carefully anchored your tablet device to your dashboard, and 2) are idling.
Great work Greg!
