Augmented Reality – Traak!

augmentThis Thursday at Film Oxford (7:30pm) we look at the fusion of video production with wearable technology and will have a presentation of Traak! an augmented reality project produced by researchers from Oxford Brookes. Augmented Reality is a cutting edge technology popularised by Google Glass, and being explored by a range of tech companies.

The discussion will be relevant to anyone interested in audio visual production, design, animation and app development. This session will provide a hands on experience and discussion of this emerging future technology that allows great potential for creative digital production.

Traak! is a wearable device that allows users to ‘play’ an animated futurist sculpture and create the ‘future sounds’ of cities. In this interactive installation, participants can use Traak! to explore the possibilities of Augmented Reality (AR) and reconsider their relationship with art, technology, and the environment.
