The AR Sun Project is a work which creates an augmented reality sun that replaces the real sun. It can be viewed on smart phones. The AR sun will stay in alignment with the real one as it moves across the sky. The goal of this project is to create a virtual sun which can go where the real sun cannot, such as heavily polluted cities where the sun can no longer be seen.
Viewers can customize the sun and add sunset effects to personalize their experience. After viewers are satisfied with the look of their sun they can take scenic landscape photos with an accurate sun in the scene.
We also see the potential for cybertherapy with this project for persons mentally affected by prolonged lack of exposure to the sun.
This project has been created by Mark Skwarek and Damon Baker.
