    ARScope

Entry Number: 04


Description:


    ARScope is a novel visual interface for various applications of augmented reality. A user views the world through a handheld device that has a shape similar to that of a magnifying glass or a crystal ball. When the user holds the device over an object, the image of the occluded part is displayed on the surface of the device seamlessly as if the surface of the device were transparent glass. The displayed image can be edited freely by using some of the techniques that are used for augmented reality. For example, a red apple can be colored blue, or animated CG characters can be made to appear suddenly.
