Reality Example

In issue 158 of Web Designer we featured a tutorial for implementing Augmented Reality with Flex.

To see the final project example in action, you must follow the link below. Be sure to visit in a browser equipped with the latest version of Flash Player, and make sure you have your web cam on and ready. Click ‘Allow’ in the viewing window when prompted and hold up the pattern printed on page 54 of the issue. Alternatively you may download a PDF of the page here and print.

The 3D cube object should then appear to hover over the center of the page, rotating and moving as you reposition it.

Remember that if you wish to follow the tutorial and recreate the effect then you need to purchase your copy of the magazine today!
