This poster describes the activities of a student participant while conducting research towards his Master’s degree in Beijing, China from May 31, 2010 to August 19, 2010. The research opportunity was sponsored by the US National Science Foundation’s International Research for Engineer’s (IREE) program. The student received his Bachelor’s degree in Electrical & Computer Engineering from Rowan University in Glassboro, New Jersey and is pursuing his Master’s degree at the same institution. The student was located at Microsoft Research Asia and worked in the Hardware Computing Group under the mentoring of Chunshui Zhao. The primary goal prior to beginning the research was to learn all there is to know about Augmented Reality and to become a global engineer. The main work conducted consisted of researching current Augmented Reality systems and pinpointing certain problems which hinder the field. These problems included lack of interaction, the ability to use an untrained environment, and the un-attractiveness of markers in an Augmented Reality application. The research aimed to solve these three issues using the development kit, ARToolKit, and created an application to portray the ideas’ potential in the form of a video game.
