Stay with Hatsune Miku in AR environment (Virtual Girlfriend / Idoru Tech - Part 2)
Second of two posts which demonstrate the appliance of tech to a virtual partner (this one is actually an impressive appliance compared to the first one …)
Put together by alsione svx, here we have a combination of Oculus Rift and a Kinect sensor, placing the Hatsune character in a real environment. What is interesting with this augmented reality approach is the use of 3D object data as the AR marker. Impressive how it works around common 2D problems such as walking behind objects (as can be seen in the last gif above). A chair itself can be a marker and a seat for a virtual character.
