Augmented Reality in Urban Planning and Rapid Prototyping

The prototype of this project was developed during my postdoc research at Harvard VCG. The project uses the concept of rapid prototyping in real space, using tactile user interface (lego blocks). The prototyping was navigated with information visualization projected on top of the real objects using AR. The data projected is environmental data (e.g. wind, sun, shadow casting etc.). This research was one of the most challenging facing all problems current AR technologies have. Pictures illustrate the concept developed during the research.
