FlickAR is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.
It is related to a more general concept called mediated reality, in which a view of reality is modified (possibly even diminished rather than augmented) by a computer. As a result, the technology functions by enhancing one's current perception of reality. By contrast, virtual reality replaces the real world with a simulated one.Augmentation is conventionally in real-time and in semantic context with environmental elements, such as sports scores on TV during a match.
With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and object recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable. Artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the real world.
FlickAR, a visual recognition platform enables innovative engagements on smart devices based on the view of device camera. FlickAR gets you to visualize 3D objects like buildings, furniture, books, characters, halls and other places with the camera. Try new settings in your room without actually rearranging them.
Now, select your 3D object from the gallery, point the marker on your camera at your desired place and there it goes. Your 3D object gets in place of the marker.
