Scratch-based AR programming environment released

The AR SPOT system is now available for public download. AR SPOT is an augmented-reality authoring environment for children. An extension of MIT’s Scratch project, this environment allows children to use drag-and-drop programming to create experiences mixing real and virtual elements. Children can display virtual objects on a real-world scene observed through a video camera, and they can control the virtual world through interactions between physical objects. This project aims to expand the range of creative experiences for young authors, by presenting AR technology in ways appropriate for this audience.
