Augmented reality (AR) is a new technology that everyone across the globe wants to explore. The augmented-reality headsets are gadgets that are helping the unskilled people turn into professionals. What more does an individual necessitates? Even when doing petty tasks such as changing the oil in your car or cutting an onion that makes tears roll down your eyes, the headset creates such an environment around you with the precise instructions so as to help you avoid taking missteps.
Though the idea of using AR may seem fantastic, it is way too expensive and tricky. This is a technology only the companies having a large fortune can use. However, a start-up company in Germany has used “IOXP” to capture the video of an individual performing a specific task and converted the video using artificial intelligence into an AR tutorial. If anybody just wants to get the leaking tap in their house fixed then all that has to be done is download a tutorial in their AR device that can guide them to do so.
There are a number of “how to do” videos already present on YouTube but the only thing is that they don’t point out when you going wrong. For making an AR tutorial, one has to take a video of an individual performing a task using a standard camera and then use the IOXP system to convert the video into augmented reality. After which a computer-vision algorithm is used to separate the chunks of the video logically such as identifying the person’s hand function, objects used, and so on. With the help of this algorithm, the electronic manual detailing of how the task can be done is generated in a step-by-step manner. The AR version, thus, created is used by the individuals.
The AR instructions manual will automatically start as soon as it recognizes the task to be performed. The tutorial displays the experts’ hands performing the task and guiding you to do the task correctly. And in case, if anything goes wrong then the hands go red and the whole action is replayed again. Thus, the accuracy of the object is worth a gaze. The technology will bloom once people understand its use and importance.
The tough task here is to extract information so as to make the videos. The app designed for the tablets or mobile phones will make the use of AR technology even easier. The use of AR technology is a bane as well as a boon for the people. For now, let’s see what the technology has got for us.
