Qualcomm AR Challenge

Danger Copter

Qualcomm recently announced the winners of their Augmented Reality Challenge. The challenge was part of a promotion of their AR SDK for iOS. And the winners are pretty cool:

  • 3rd Place: “Danger Copter” by five grad students at USC. It’s a great idea (and my favorite of the winners) — you walk around a very large physical surface in order to explore areas in a virtual city.
  • 2nd Place: “Inch High Stunt Guy” by Defiant Development. Here you can build micro stunt tracks, and then guide a tiny stuntman to drive through it.
  • 1st Place: “Paparazzi” by Paulius Liekis and Arminas Didziokas. Here you take photos of a celebrity, but don’t get too close or he’ll jump on your camera and try to attack you.
