Hand Tracking in Augmented Reality (AR)

Hand Tracking in Augmented Reality (AR)

In the previous lesson, we learned a new way to implement location-based augmented reality without using GPS. We learned how to position objects in augmented reality accurately and offline. In this video, we want to use a new and handy feature for augmented reality to increase the productivity of AR applications and provide practical freedom for the user. If you want to know how you can implement this, continue this lesson by watching the video version of the lesson at the link below: If you enjoyed this post, please consider contributing to help us with our mission to make robotics…

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

In the previous lesson on the series of lessons about Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR), we became familiar with the concept of Virtual Reality. In this lesson, we'll learn about Augmented Reality (AR) and we will become familiar with different methods to implement it. Augmented reality is a new technology for displaying a virtual event or object in the real world. The 3D model appears in AR based on a spatial reference in the real world: a 2D image, an object, or part of the ground. AR usually runs on Android and iOS platforms. The application of AR…
