Fugio Friday – ARToolKit

Happy Fugio Friday!

Today I’m heading to the airport to catch a plane to Cork to speak at MAKE 2017 Symposium about Art and Biology (tickets) including several projects that I’ve worked on using Fugio.

Fugio version 2.5.0 is available for download/update now featuring a new Augmented Reality plugin (utilising the ARToolKit5 library) that allows mixing live video and 3D computer generated graphics in real time.  There are a couple of examples for marker tracking and using the 3D camera.

Last week we had the first Fugio workshop with a fantastic group of intrepid participants.  We covered a lot of topics and it was a great experience for me to see first hand how people find their first experiences with Fugio.
