Registration Problem

The Registration Problem is an Augmented Reality glitch in which some physical objects are not recognised or registered by the system. This isn't a problem until a virtual object is sent through the supposedly unoccupied space the physical object occupies. At that point the two collide, with the virtual object passing through the physical object, breaking the suspension of disbelief.

Even worse if the physical object is alive, a human or another animal. As they move around, they are not registered by the system, so it fails to react to them, and may pass through multiple virtual constructs without them reacting in any way.

The registration problem is one of the greatest issues with AR as it stands, as it falls upon the AR system to detect and track the physical objects in any physical space.

Continuing on from Large Image Display: Fixing a Problem, we see the same truck as evidenced in that frame, heading further into the city. This is a definite problem with every world that is heavily based on the recreation of natural laws. If you desire to do something that breaks those laws, you cannot. Not without breaking those laws, and as everything is interconnected, setting up a ripple effect that damages the simulation around the 'physical' area where you teleport.

Proof of Concept for “The 3D Printer Problem”
For SIGGRAPH 2013, one joint research team presented a proof of concept method to solve the 3D printer problem - the ability of any 3D printer to theoretically counterfeit any physical object small enough for it to print. They demonstrate a terahertz-radiation 'watermark' that can be 3D printed inside a genuine object, is easy to scan for, and very difficult to duplicate from the scan data.
