According to Wikipedia, Augmented reality (AR) is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory and olfactory.
Imagine being able to snap a picture of something and bringing it into another canvas. In a sense, capture an image of one world and bring it into another digital world. This is like the traditional cut and paste we are all used to on our computer but brought into the augmented world.
Grab a picture something you see and bring it into another digital platform within seconds. In the case of a paramedic, this could be snapping a picture of a scene ( face recognition, drug labels, potential injuries and instantly creating a report of the situation in a digital platform.
That report could be sent instantly to the hospital for instance assessment and diagnostics. This is just an example of the possibility of the AR Cut Paste application.
The code is available on GitHub. The prototype code allows cutting elements from your surroundings and pasting them in an image editing software.
Although only Photoshop is being handled currently, it may handle different outputs in the future.
