Lessons Learned From Physical AR – Justin MIller
You’ve no doubt heard a lot about AR lately, where we can see and control software elements projected into the real world. I’ve been interested in the combination of AR for control and feedback with the physical world as the manipulated medium. For example, selecting from and applying colors in a purely software environment but having those colors manifest in lights in the physical world. I’ve recently done some projects in this space and I’m going to share some of the lessons I’ve learned building them out, from tips to make the experience more convincing to some of the unintended ways that things can go wrong. Useful for AR applications, sure, but also hopefully for all of you who are building interactive experiences for humans!
