This is an early portable “augmented reality” interactive demonstration I created way back in 2003. We motion captured miniature real world “camera-props” and R/C cars racing around a small circular set, to drive CGI animated cars rendered from the prop-driven “pov” cameras within the real-time rendered experience displayed overhead. The result is a tactile synchronized interface between the real and virtual world, developed to bridge the gap between traditional and digital artists working within the Visual Effects Industry. This was groundbreaking tech back in the early 2000’s, and spawned numerous VFX techniques for such films as POLAR EXPRESS, AVATAR, and the most recent STAR WARS trilogy.
