Istanbul’s first mini Maker Faire was a resounding success. One of my projects was an Augmented Reality Gallery application. I had a bunch of traditional pieces of artwork printed and framed, these are pieces that should be recognizable to most anyone. For instance, Andy Warhol’s Marilyn, Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper, etc.
The way it works, download the application, point your smartphone’s camera at the hanging art, and voila, a magically augmented replacement of the art within the frame. The replacements might be of a “turkified” context, something humorous, or something educational.
Download and print the images below and use with this app if you’d like to try it for yourself. It also works great when I point my Samsung Galaxy Note 3 at the screen of my laptop (without taking the step to print the image) and it worked great, your results may vary due to how your camera-phone decides to deal with a computer display.
