Its been a busy month coming to end of the year (as usual), packed with work yet still managed to pull this off. Augmented Reality had been my interest for few years back and to get the opportunity to learn from the pioneer ARToolkit ‘man’ himself is overwhelm. Most likely some wont recognize him but i am glad to attend his workshop on AR professional course organized by Magic-x of UTM. Managed to have a chat with Prof Mark about the AR industry & personal opinions. Thanks for sharing your thoughts and knowledge Prof!!
