We finished up our Lunar Lander game yesterday with a little demo of how you’d hook this game up in Xcode. We won’t be going any further (yet) with Xcode, but if you want to check it out, I put the source code for yesterday’s demo up at https://github.com/mhanlon/LunarLander.
If you don’t feel like you’re ready for it just yet, don’t worry, we’ll get to Xcode soon enough!
We’re going to try out something new today…
We’ll learn how to use an image anchor.
If you’ve watched the Harry Potter movies, or maybe you’ve read the books and imagined what the Daily Prophet must have looked like with its moving pictures, well, this is the sort of thing we can do with image anchors.
With an image anchor we can attach our augmented reality content to a particular pattern found in the real world.
For starters, we’ll talk about some strategies for making good anchor images.
I love this part of augmented reality and can’t wait to show you how to stick content to your own images!
See you at 1pm!
