    AR Tennis



    Modern mobile phones combine a display and processing power with a camera, and so are ideal platforms for augmented reality (AR), the overlay of computer graphics on the real world. Henrysson [2] has ported the popular ARToolKit [1] computer vision library to the Symbian operating system which allows developers to build AR applications that run on a mobile phone.

    Mobile phones are already designed to support local and remote communication, so one interesting area for research is supporting collaborative AR applications. AR Tennis is the first example of a face to face collaborative AR application based on mobile phones.
