Vuforia AR offers remote presence for everyone
VR app will make it easier to overlay instructions on video
Tired of driving to your parents' house to help them turn on the telly? There's an app for that.
Augmented reality developer Vuforia has announced that it will expand its AR capabilities through its new app, Project Chalk, set to arrive this fall.
Project Chalk lets you annotate the physical world as it is seen on the screen of another person's device, making it easier for people to help each other from remote locations. Annotation options include illustrations as well as note-taking tools.
Vuforia said Project Chalk offers interactive hands-on assistance from anywhere, be it for personal, educational and professional uses. Have a relative that needs help operating their PC or offspring that's moved out but doesn't know how to use the washing machine? Project Chalk promises to offer a more efficient way to give directions.
For example, students that don't understand a homework assignment can video chat with a classmate to get interactive help, or you can video chat with your electrician who could then use the app to walk you through the process of fixing a fault without them actually having to come to your home.
Project Chalk will be available as a standalone app for Android, Windows and iOS, and Vuforia developers will be able to integrate Project Chalk functionality into existing apps via an SDK. Project Chalk will not only be compatible with a wide range of phones and tablets but eventually also digital eyewear. To learn more about Project Chalk, click here.
