Royal Delft worked with their design partner, FLEX\design, and AR developers TWNKLS, to create a new concept of tableware decoration to further their originality.
The result was the Augmented Blueware application. This app takes a unique hand-painted design on a vase and applies it as decoration on top of tableware, creating a truly unique personalized product.
TWNKLS, now part of PTC, created a highly fashionable and high-resolution marker on a dining table that allowed Augmented Blueware to display designs on plates. Vuforia Engine’s robust computer vision enabled the application to detect the sizable high-resolution design marker and allow the camera to lock onto its minimal features. Adding extended tracking to the mix ensured the augmented graphics remained in full effect whenever the user moved in to get a closer look at the designs. This way, the application always retained its slick and sleek presentation.
Vuforia Engine’s Object Targets feature allowed TWNKLS to create a completely new way to interact with the physical content. Pointing the camera at the hand-painted vase and scanning its features triggers a transition animation which reveals a matching set of augmented textures on the crockery.
