Rovio Augmented Reality

The Rovio Augmented Reality was a project in close collaboration with wowwee. In the early stages of the development of the Rovio platform the good guys at wowwee approached the HIT Lab NZ to build Augmented Reality games. This project went from the drafting phase of Rovio to the very final version of the robot. However, it is still not clear how to build compelling AR games with AR mediated telepresence as other projects later have shown.
