Augmented duality: overlapping a metaverse with the real world.

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

The advent of metaverses provide exciting opportunities for augmented reality research. We have created a number of interactions between the metaverse Second Life and the real world. Camera phone image matching creates portals and triggers the metaverse to mimic real locations. Image processing, tracking, projection and 3D video sprites create varied possibilities for people and avatars to have presence in each others worlds. We argue that these multiform contacts and overlaps between multiple points in the real world and an extensive and distinct
metaverse constitute a new class of augmented reality interaction. Such a system of multiple parallel social existences may point to a mass social networking phenomenon built on the overlapping of a metaverse with the real world which we call Augmented Duality.
