XjARToolkit - How should it work (end user example)

Step 1: any user can create a content (mostly small pictures, vidéo, text or sound file created with its cellphone or computer)
Step 2-3: he send/upload/send his file to a networked database while at the same time associating it to a visual sign (through a picture of the sign or through a code of it)
Step 3: the signs themselves can have different status, being used alone or creating a pattern.
Step 4: any user could access to any of the AR content through the camera observation of the signs. Access would ideally be possible through cellephones, pda, laptops, portable game stations, origami-like computers, etc. (only possible through laptops today which doesn't make so much sense)

We must also stress the point that the visual signs for the camera can be used alone, in groups (to create new and bigger signs) or as patterns. This can lead to the creation of visual simple products that could surround the AR application and be "AR-Ready" products bringing all the network, media & interaction possibilities to traditional static supports.
These products could be paper, post-it, wallpaper, stamps, books, t-shirts or fabrics for clothes, badges, stickers, etc.
