The GTC Showcase App by the Game Technology Center of ETH Zurich (Switzerland) provides news and demos of our research projects to the public.
Currently, it contains a research prototype called “Augmented Creativity” and an augmented reality scavenger hunt “Expedition Solar System”.
With Augmented Creativity, we aim to enhance creative and playful activities using augmented reality (AR).
This app contains three modules. The AR coloring book module lets you color a character with regular paper and pens and then transfers the colors onto a 3D character shown on the display. The AR Band module allows you to playfully combine musical instruments and musical styles in AR to make your own arrangement of a song. Finally, the AR Museum module shows how AR technology can improve the interactivity of a museum experience. Through AR, you can interact with a painting, changing colors and shapes and hence create your own masterpiece!
Expedition Solar System:
This augmented reality scavenger hunt accompanies the special exhibition "Expedition Solar System" by focusTerra at ETH Zurich. The game lets you collect four objects for your space mission. Find them on the comic pages in the exhibition or in the accompanying book. Once you’ve found them all, take a photo with Marsty, the friendly Martian!
