Using Smart Tokens on your tablet:
The Smart Token, made by b-token, is the key to a digital experience and creates a fun and new way of combining physical items with the digital world. As a demo we have developed 6 mini-games in this app which combine different technologies such as augmented reality and image recognition.
In augmented reality the user gets an extra experience that appears to be happening in real life. By looking through the camera of the device the user sees his own settings and environment but by scanning the token something magic happens. The app recognises the image on the token and unlocks a 3d image that appears as an enhancement to the perception of reality.
Image recognition can be used to identify certain images or items, based on visual comparison or decoding. By identifying the images or patterns on the token and comparing those with the images stored in the application or server, the app can identify the image in front of the camera.
