Dollar Bill tracker: UK alternative

February 23, 2015 - 3:38am #4

I've seen that in America, a lot of Augmented Reality developers use a dollar bill as a tracker, which is a brilliant idea as its an object that most people will have and it saves them the hassle of printing a tracker out.

However, living in the UK, a dollar wouldn't be so useful… So I've been trying to wrack my brains to think of an equivalent (£1 wouldn't work quite the same) that I, and other UK AR developers, could use.

Has anyone else had the same thought? Anyone come up with anything?

A picture of your phone from the internet would work. 

Then you can augment the model on top of your phone. (ie, unless you're using your own phone for testing)

Yeah thats the trouble, if the app is on the phone, there's no way to use the phone as a tracker.

Good thought though

How many versions of the 5 pound note are in circulation?  Also have you looked at our User Defined Targets feature? WIth that the user can use whatever image is available to them.
