Fractal’10 AR Ident

This application was built to showcase the Fracal’10 conference in Colombia which I will be speaking at later this month.

The strapline of the event is “Reinventing the world through Fiction, Art, Science and Technology”. I wanted to incorporate these themes in an original and playful manner that would suit my talk – “Telling stories with Augmented Reality”.

I’ve created a fragmented Anamorphic distortion which invites the user to traverse the themes of the event. The fabulously talented Juliet Lall created a series of illustrations which are fractured and scattered in 3D space. The user must rotate the marker to reveal these images before moving onto the next.

Click here to interact with it. You can download the marker here.

I will be releasing the source code for this application closer to the event.

    This is great, a bit like an augmented reality Rubik’s cube.
    Great video!

    And also works such as this:

    it seems that something is missing, not a file though, i get this error after initialising the FLARManager, when the addevent listener are added:

    TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
    at fractal::App/markerAddedHandler()
    at com.transmote.flar::FLARManager/detectMarkers()
    at com.transmote.flar::FLARManager/onEnterFrame()
    TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.

    Where could this come from?
