This application uses augmented reality to make it easier for people to draw a picture. All you need is a computer, a webcam and a printed marker. You place the marker at the corner of the canvas or paper you want to draw on, upload the picture you want to draw, then look through the webcam using the transparent picture as a guide to drawing.
The name Filippo comes from Filippo Brunellschi-- designer of the dome of Florence's famous cathedral. It was Brunellschi who invented linear perspective using a mirror and a painted panel. This project is made possible using the excellent NyARToolkitaugmented reality Java toolkit. This was built, in turn, using Sun's Java Media Framework and Java 3D.
