A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:
These photos and videos provide a detailed look at this project’s development.

Augmented reality adds a new dimension to the interactive gaming scene. Multiplayer role playing games, laser tag, and more.
What is augmented reality? Augmented reality overlays information and graphics over normal vision to enable people to view things in a new way.
Most of the major brands worldwide are investing in some way in virtual reality.
Imagine walking into a warehouse and being able to see the contents and meta-data of every box. Imagine having your own personal tour of every art gallery and museum. AR(Augmented Reality) make this possible. There are endless opportunities with AR from gaming to communications.
AR devices enable people to work in groups and receive real time technical support in ways that were not possible before now.
The name Tarnhelm is a magic helmet in Richard Wagner's Der Ring des Nibelungen that allows one to travel long distances instantly. Like the mythical Tarnhelm, Augmented Reality enables two people to see what the other person is seeing over vast distances nearly instantly.
The Tarnhelm AR system uses a single board computer with raspberry pi compatible headers and GPIO. The open platform will enable makers and developers to easily make changes and interface with existing systems. Full wireless connectivity and an open platform make development easy.
The hardware consists of a single board computer running Linux OS with a few extra sensors, an LCD display, and a battery. The unique see-through display uses curved lenses that direct the display information to the eye while allowing the viewer to see the world around them unobstructed with a 90° Field of Vision display . Hardware accelerated graphics enable the Tarnhelm to display high frame rate 3D.
Virtual Reality Conventions Are A Hit. Among the biggest reasons behind the rising popularity of virtual reality are the tech conventions. These are the venues where people might first learn about virtual reality and where the first time users experience it as well. The others go to not miss out on the latest. Some of the conventions are becoming really popular and ticket prices are skyrocketing. Companies that produce virtual reality headsets are using the conventions to build some hype for their upcoming products for users.

The largest goal of this project is to create a thriving open source software platform that will enable developers to jumpstart their AR ideas. The open software platform is scheduled to be released prior to the shipping date. We want to build a community of AR developers and enthusiasts around this project. Join us in creating the next Augmented Reality platform!
Virtual reality can be used to simulate a number of experiences and enhance them.
The software platform includes:
- High level language such as Python or Java
- 3D Stereoscopic interface
- Hardware graphics acceleration
- Image Recognition
- Access to image and other AR databases
- Wikipedia and Github pages
