Money Talks with AR

Submitted by on Monday, 20 September 20105 Comments

They say money talks, thanks to a fun augmented reality application from Harmonypark and Sam Hare it really does have a voice.

Chatterbucks is a new iPhone application that uses natural feature tracking to identify £5 and £10 banknotes from the UK. Once identified a speech bubble appears giving Her Majesty the opportunity to deliver a personalised message to the viewer.

The application is a bit of fun that demonstrates the power of natural feature tracking for mobile devices. Developers have been surprisingly slow to build natural feature tracking applications for the iPhone so its good to see an app appearing finally. Sam and the guys at Harmonypark are working on a application that will recognise Japanese Yen and US Dollars so overseas readers will get to have some money fun soon.
