Augmented contextual instruction user experience (Image tracking)

Screen captures from the completed image-tracking augmented contextual instruction user experience.  The augmented contextual instruction is made up of a sequence of junaio channels that can be browsed in the junaio AR browser. For this example, the channels were browsed using junaio on an iPad.

Save. Upload. Wait. Test. Tweak. Save again. Upload again. Wait again. Test again. Tweak again. Almost there! And another thing. It’s been 11 days since I posted my issue with Z translation of buttons in UI Designer of Metaio Creator 2.6 to the Helpdesk of the Metaio  Developer Portal and there hasn’t been one response! […]

Placing geometry in the 3D point cloud in Metaio Creator 2.6

Placing geometry in the 3D point cloud in Metaio Creator 2.6 is a little cumbersome, bewildering and often inaccurate. It takes lots of clicking and seemingly random fiddling to place geometry. You also can’t really determine if your geometry is placed correctly within the 3D point cloud until you upload to your channel and then […]

Lost in Metaio Creator’s Z translation

I’m currently wrestling with the correct Z translation of images and buttons in UI Designer of Creator 2.6. I’ve placed some buttons on top of an background image in the UI Designer of Creator and have encountered a problem where the image obscures the buttons and prevents them from working. I’ve checked the Z translation […]

Two channels published without the extras

After two days of waiting, my Step 4: Remove piston seal from caliper and Step 1: Remove bracket from caliper channels on Junaio have been made public. This is good news, but I think I went a little early on the publish because I failed to include extras such buttons for the instructional video, learner resources […]

Preparing low-poly geometry for augmented contextual instruction in the disassembly and assembly of a vehicle’s rear brake caliper.

Preparing low-poly geometry for augmented contextual instruction in the disassembly and assembly of a vehicle’s rear brake caliper. Augmented contextual instruction is to be prepared in Metaio Creator, published to a Metaio channel and then accessed by learners through the Junaio app. 3D point cloud data is gathered with Metaio Toolbox. This video conceptualises one stage of […]

Prototyping augmented contextual instruction with Metaio Creator (Demo mode) and Toolbox

For this prototype, I’m using Metaio Creator image and object recognition features of Toolbox in restrictive Demo Mode to further explore some aspects of my concept of augmented contextual instruction. Unfortunately, in Demo Mode I can’t use the excellent 3D point cloud data  captured in Toolbox to prototype all aspects of my augmented contextual instruction. In Demo […]

Concept: Augmented contextual instruction

Augmented contextual instruction provides users with procedural demonstrations based on recognisable features and attributes of an object. Augmented contextual instruction could be used in vocational training and assessment contexts. Users can add (record), edit and share their own contextual instruction.

Blender selection modes: The sync selection button

Once you’ve created seams in your mesh and then unwrapped it, you’ll then probably want to move contiguous groups of faces or UV islands into a location that will make it easier for you to create and then paint a texture. Before you can start moving your UV islands you’ll need to change your selection […]

ARIG: A prototype camera rig for recording contextual tablet and mobile phone screen activity

ARIG is a camera rig for recording activity on and around the screen of a tablet or mobile phone screen. The concept for ARIG came from my need to record my experiments with marker and location-based augmented reality experiences. In this example, ARIG records a simple 3D cube augment produced with Blender 2.62 and Aurasma […]
