How the ARDL Works?

 

 

A web camera is focused on a scene that contains camera tracking markers (essentially black and white squares that the software can recognize).  Each person then looks through a handheld display system called a Virtual Reality POV or at a monitor.  What the person sees is exactly what the camera sees, except that the software replaces or enhances the camera tracking markers with virtual, 3D images.  The person can then interact with those 3D images by manipulating the markers.  The person’s interaction and manipulation of the markers can also trigger narrations and sound effects.  Markers can be a variety of sizes and attached to almost any flat surface, which means they can be used in many interesting and effective ways.
