WireAR - Legacy Applications in Augmented Reality

By Gerhard Reitmayr, Mark Billinghurst, and Dieter Schmalstieg


Current Augmented Reality (AR) applications require that the application software be written to support a specific AR interface set up. WireAR was developed to enable output from any OpenGL application to be viewed in an AR fashion. This enables the output from any legacy graphical or scientific visualization applications to be viewed in a collaborative AR setting. This demonstration shows how the output of standard desktop visualization programs can be embedded into an augmented reality experience.
