Augmented Reality as a portal to the past

Augmented Reality is a forward-looking technology, enabling the Internet-of-Things to become reality. However, 'AR' doesn't only look into the future, but it can also act as a portal to the past. Loughborough's pedestrians have the chance to escape their present and travel back 100 years, using the Loughborough Junction World War One and Junaio.

Guiding your steps through Matera – the City of Stones

matera-basilicata3.jpg

The city of Matera is located in the South of Italy and exudes the typical Italian romantic charm in architecture and culture. It is part of a huge national park with beautiful landscapes and haunting stone churches, caves and cliffs scattered throughout the whole area. It’s both eerie and breath-taking but it can also be overwhelming if you don’t know your way around the rocky valleys and hillsides.

Our certified developer Yoomee Technologies created a location-based Junaio channel called “Parco della Murgia Materana” that allows you to discover and explore each and every one of the 149 stone churches in the area. You not only get information about the location of the churches, but also historic facts, opening times, and tour data. Discover more about the story of the channel, including some technical insights, on our blog.

The Metaio POI Creator is now in the Microsoft Office Store

Augmented Reality for navigation has never been easier since the release of Metaio’s POI plugin for Microsoft Excel. What does it do? This plugin allows you to create points of interest (POI’s) which can be viewed as augmented billboards in your camera feed using Junaio. Because the plugin operates within Microsoft Excel – it is now accessible to virtually anyone. Any changes or edits can be managed easily from within the Microsoft Excel sheet and exported directly with the click of a button. This easy export option creates a location-based channel which can be published in Junaio. Check out the video to see how it all works.  For step-by-step instructions, check out the Metaio developer portal

Trevor Jones is a Canadian artist, working and living in Edinburgh. He recently discovered a mind-blowing way to bring his beautiful and artistic paintings to life with Augmented Reality. Using Junaio, Trevor managed to “transform” his paintings’ canvases into fully functioning movie screens. His paintings start morphing into their real life equivalent and are then once again replaced by short movies. The videos Trevor included were shot at the Edinburgh Botanic Garden and convey a somewhat unsettling but captivating atmosphere in short and carefully selected peeks of nature. Discover more in the full article.

Ready for some fun with Junaio 6.0?

Powered by Metaio 6, Junaio 6.0 brings along an improved ease of use, thanks to a more precise and more stable image recognition and a brighter iOS user-experience thanks to an increased transparency of the interface.

After focusing on the user experience in the previous release, with a new interface, improved usability, data transfer, and optimization for wearables, we decided to dedicate the new release to our 'AR' professionals.

Junaio 6.0 will include all related updates and new features from SDK 6.0, resulting in improved 3D tracking: even more robust and with higher precision from a larger distance.

Creating Junaio channels became easier and more flexible, thanks to the new features in Creator and the launch of the 'AR' Creator Plugin for InDesign. Not to mention about the Location Based channels, which can now be deployed directly from the POI Creator plugin for Excel, without needing any programming skills (coming up soon in the Microsoft store).

All these improvements aim at empowering our professionals to free their creativity, thanks to extended flexibility and versatility. This will reflect in the content published in Junaio, so users should get ready for mind-blowing 'AR' experiences.
