For Coperion we developed an interactive product listing. It uses real time markerless video tracking to augment the listing booklet. It shows augmented product simulations, exploded diagrams and additional information for each product.
The application was presented during the Powtech 2013 trade show in Nuremberg in April 2013.
It is difficult to use a mouse interface to navigate in 3D space, since it takes some time to get used to. An actual object, like a book makes it possible to navigate in 3D space more intuitively. It takes very little time to get used to, and enables users to access relevant information more quickly.
The application combines the possibilities of a virtual simulation with the ease of use of a printed booklet. The complex components are animated and rendered in real time.
