[GDC09] Just as it was announced, we gotour hands on the Vuzix Augmented Reality Kit. Our conclusion: it is still rough and requires higher resolution cameras in the future. Clearly the demo works and depending on your application, the current setup might be “good enough”, but for example the pistol demo lacked the resolution to align the sights as one would expect.
Vuzix Augmented Reality Kituses a camerathat can “see” and track the position and orientation of an object (included in the kit). From there, it can act as a controller. Developers are required to do more work to make their games compatible, so check Vuzix’s website to be sure (GDC09 Booth 5123).
