Book of Kells library has busts of many great philosophers and writers of the western world. The research aims to develop an AR app to visualise a 3D model of an original character and project it onto the bust. Then, people can see the colourful texture of the bust along with some general information of the bust (e.g. from their Wikipedia page) on their smartphone’s screen.
The task requires knowledge of 3D mesh reconstruction, Unity and app development. Dr Rogerio da Silva would also supervise this project.
