Talk:Augmented reality for fun using Nokia Imaging SDK filters

Yan -

If i understand correctly, you have modified the gart library to replace the viewfinder by realtime filtering with Imaging SDK?

Igrali -

Yes (sounds oversimplified, though), using the GART for augmented reality and Nokia Imaging SDK for real time filtering of the frames (camera view).

lol i don't thinks it's simple ^^

your idea is Really amazing!!!

Good luck for the competition.

Hamishwillee - A little feedback

Hi Igrali

I think this is an interesting idea/addition to the GART library. My first thought was that with a sepia filter and tailoring of the discription boxes to look like tombstones you could create a very nice wild-west themed geocache finding game :-)

As an article I think the description of GART is quite good. My concern is that the article is very monolithic - and the bigger an article is, the harder it is to understand. IMO this is two articles - one on GART and one on Gart + filtered preview. The article on GART would be best created by merging into Augmented Reality using GART on Windows Phone. Don't know how you feel about that?

Well done

Igrali - Thanks for the feedback

Hi Hamish

Thank you for going through the article and giving me feedback!

When drafting the article and deciding what to put in, I was aiming to give a complete picture, from defining AR to doing the GART modifications.

Of course, I had to draw a line somewhere, so I didn't go into details about camera APIs, maps, individual sensors etc., but I felt that the intro to GART was short enough and great for people who haven't seen it before.

I could do some restructuring in the future to further shorten the GART part and just put more references instead, for easier reading and understanding the main point.

Thanks again, I really appreciate it, and I hope that you think that overall it's a good article and a useful addition to Nokia Wiki. :)

BuildNokia - Reworked introduction

Hi Igor,

This is a fascinating article. So cool that we're able to do this kind of thing.

Congratulations on winning the Nokia Imaging and Big UI Wiki Competition!

Since a lot of people are going to be reading this article, I rewrote the introduction to put all of the important information upfront. Could you take a look at what I did and make sure that I didn't lose any of your meaning? Feel free to make any changes you think are necessary.

Igrali - Looks great

Hi Jen,

thank you for taking the time to rework the introduction - I think it's really great and gets to the point much quicker and nicer than I did originally.

I noticed that you removed the part which mentions the other type of AR apps, the type which does the image processing to detect certain markers etc. I guess you thought that it can be omitted because it's not relevant to the whole article? I don't have much against removing that part, I just wanted to make sure that you did that on purpose. :)

One other thing - when you explain what kind of app we'll be building in the article, it's true that we use location sensors and Motion API (which combines info from other sensors), but I edited it just to emphasize the fact that the GART actually handles all that for us, which gives a high level of abstraction mentioned later on in the article.

I am very happy to hear that you liked the article and that you share my opinion that it's so cool that we can do these types of things, which really opens up new possibilities. :)

BuildNokia - Didn't realize that GART handles sensor and POI data

Hi Igor,

I hadn't understood that GART handles all of that. Your change was perfect.

Yes, I intentionally removed the part about other types of AR apps. I didn't think it was necessary in the introduction; in fact I thought it might be confusing to readers. The SLAR toolkit link is still listed in the "See Also" section so I figured that people who are really interested in this will still find it.
