We’re pleased to announce the release of the Augmented Reality for Titanium (ARti) application source code. We first announced this back in the first week of January and we had hoped to release the source shortly thereafter but ran into some issues that required us to release the code along with a 1.6.x build of our MobileSDK.
The core of this application will hopefully spark Titanium developers to push for more advanced and different applications. It truly shows what can be done with tools provided in its raw forms. ARTi is released under the Apache 2.0 license and is available to all that want to play with it. We hope that by putting tools like this into your hands, that community developers can focus around hacking, forking, and generally improving the applications that are produced. ARTi, we feel, is a great stepping stone towards this goal.
If you are looking to improve or develop more around the ARTi code, consider adding the following tools and enhancements:
- Accelerometer Controls
- Converting 2D Matrices to 3D
- Updating information based on location
- Additional Facebook improvements like checkin
NOTE: ARti only works for iOS and only under the emulator, iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4
To run ARti you’re going to need to download and install Titanium Mobile 1.6.0 RC1.
To install the MobileSDK, you’ll want to download and then extract into your Titanium directory. On OSX, your Titanium directory will be under either /Library/Application Support/Titanium or~/Library/Application Support/Titanium.
Now, you’ll need to restart Titanium Developer to pick up the new release. Once restarted, remember to change the ARti application SDK version and then click the ‘Save’ button.
Here are the links to what you need to get started with ARti.
