什麼是AR?

英文Augmented Reality的縮寫,中文叫「擴增實境」。就是一種將虛擬資訊擴增到現實空間中的技術,並不是要取代現實世界,而是在現實世界中添加一個虛擬物件。

例如前陣子讓許多人瘋迷的寶可夢遊戲,就是利用手機的相機,即時在現實環境中添加了寶可夢的圖像及資訊,玩家可以將寶貝球丟擲到螢慕中的寶可夢來完成抓寶,同時還可以和抓到的寶一起同框合影,增加互動的趣味性。

根據「泛科技」的介紹,擴增實境分為二種顯示方式:

一種是將數位資訊或圖像疊加在真實世界的實像或實物上,透過手機或平板上的應用程式,在現實的狀態下可以看見所增加的圖影像及資訊,是將虛擬的影像與現實的物體結合的影像合成穿透式(Video See-through)。

另一種是人的眼晴直接透過鏡片,看到三維的空間中虛擬的圖像,並透過準確追蹤及定位,可在空間中同步抓取或觸摸虛擬的圖形並產生互動。


What is AR?

Abbreviation of 「Augmented Reality」, is kind of technique to bring the Virtual information into the reality space. Instead of replacing the real world, you add a virtual object to the real world.

For Example, the most famous APP game 「Pokemon Go」which appear the pokemon image and information on the reality environment and using the mobile camera to throw the ball and catch the pokemon. Also, you can take the photo with pokemon you caught to increase the fun of interaction.

According to the PanX.Asia, they are two way to display the AR:

One is to put the digital information and image into real world or object. Through the mobile or tablet APP, you can see the adding image or information on the reality status. To combine the virtual image and real object together called 「Video See-Through」.

Another one is through the glasses to see the virtual image in 3D space, also tracking and position accurately, you can catch or tough the virtual image and interaction with it.
