Augmented Reality is a relatively new technology and still has many avenues left to be explored. Using AR, any type of data can be generated based on real-time variables such as those in a person’s environment. An interesting use of this has been made by the developers of the iOS application called Project Paperclip.
Project Paperclip is an iOS application sized at nearly 80 MB and compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch, and the iPad running iOS version 4.3 or later. The application basically showcases the work of Portuguese Photographer, Nuno Serrão. But instead of a regular exhibition of photographs, iOS device owners have the option to enable soundscapes that are determined by the user’s environment – this includes location, time, as well as noise.
By adding a dimension of variable audio to the paintings, the app’s developers have made use of Augmented Reality in a remarkably creative way.
