Skoda Fabia RS WebRallye - Augmented Reality

After an educational and sports focused summer break I developed an Augmented Reality game for a client in Hamburg. The task was to create an unusual test drive for the new Skoda Fabia rallye sports model.

The main focus was to implement the design and navigation specifications in conjunction with the effort of level design, runtime and bandwidth performance.
To enable the favoured appearance and ability to design the levels I developed an extensible bitmap render engine. This task was easy to perform because I worked a lot with 3d engines and particle systems before.
Due to the main goal to enable navigating the car with a virtual steering wheel, printed on paper, I used the FLARToolKit, a ported version of the ARToolKit. Even though this is the fastest way to implement this feature, it took a lot of time to adjust the desired behaviours. Fortunately we won the FWA 'Site of the Day' award.

An additional, meanwhile standard feature was to enable a personalised facebook wall integration via user image and achieved result.

This summer I had the chance to work on an exciting project for Scholz&Volkmer again. While Vincent Rebers focused on the live installation and multiuser drawing tool I took the load off from him by developing the rest of the microsite. We not only had a great time, it's also honored by the Bronze DMMA-OnlineStar in the category Microsites.

An integrated, viral campaign related to the “CELLULOID. Cameraless film“ exhibition at Schirn art gallery.

"Your artwork at the Schirn!": With a multiuser realtime drawing application the visitors design their own artwork and publish it both on the Website and on a live installation as part of the art exhibition.

All visitors and users can take part in the exhibition at the art gallery and present one of their own artwork next to other great artists.
