Baking with Augmented Reality

Baking with Augmented Reality is my first project in a series that attempts to augment menial and common tasks through AR, serving as a response to how AR is being used to ostensibly enhance mediocre products. This project consisted of a cake with a frosted fiducial marker on top. Building a custom application using OpenFrameworks, I tracked the marker and superimposed a decoration on the cake.

In the end, I went for a modest decoration: Keanu Reeves riding a unicorn, with rainbows and flying dolphins.
