Augmented reality drumkit

February 20, 2010 · Posted in Electronic Music 

So AR seems to be the ‘next big thing’ for the year ahead…and the folks over at Squidder.com have combined it with fiducial tracking to make a demo of an AR dumkit. Air drums anyone

This actually came about as a happy little accident while trying to bend FLARToolkit to our will (tracking multiple instances of multiple symbols – a total pain in the ass. But that’s a story for another time). It just so happened that we were rocking out to Kiss’ “God Gave Rock & Roll To You” and it suddenly occurred to us that “Hey, it wouldn’t be so hard to make these things make sounds when they disappear.” So we did. And it was awesome.

We’ve (for once) posted a usable demo, so you too can rock out at your desk. Below is a quick video demo of all four sounds and after the break, you can see the demo of using multiple instances of the same drum.
