Eddie – 3D Scanning and Augmented Reality in Education

Open access


We are convinced that the learning process could be a lot more interesting and more interactive for young people with the help of modern technologies. The presence and the usage of the smartphones is natural for today’s young generations, although they do not use their inherent potential for example for educational purposes. Eddie is a hybrid of a smartphone application and a school book. The school book would keep its original form, but we would make the application fit for a given subject. The already existing pictures in the schoolbooks would work as a special indicator, which our application could read. The application would show different contents virtually in AR (Augmented Reality), based on the scanned image. The shown content could be a 3D model, animation or video.
