MR Aquarium

MR Aquarium was demonstrated in 2008, as a spatial VR project using multiple magic symbol displays on walls and pedestals, to bypass the problem, of turning the HUD away from the magic symbol, at which point the AR disappears.

By ensuring that wherever the HUD was turned to, in a given indoor space, it would always be able to see at least one magic symbol display, it was possible to create a seamless AR fish tank, with fish and turtles swimming about the viewpoint. The positions of all the magic symbol display units relative to the simulation were known and tracked, such that from whichever was visible at the time, it was possible to maintain the same perspective view on the simulation.
