To make this possible, we filmed several of his tricks in front of a greenscreen background in the virtual studio of the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf (HSD). We used two cameras for this to capture the performance from two different angles: standing and sitting. This was done to ensure that users can watch it in both positions.
The goal of this collaboration was to bring Simon’s magic to our living rooms by means of a tablet with an augmented-reality (AR) functionality. For both Simon and our team, it was interesting to explore the technological possibilities in the context of a magic performance.
