process.annotator gone VR

Annotation of a large object in real space using a VR setup.

After we implemented the concept with rotation sensors and were able to annotate small symmetrical objects, we implemented a version with a VR setup to annotate large asymmetrical objects.

Now a user can move freely around the object and attach spatially exact annotations to the object. We also used speech recognition (IBM Watson) to record the annotations verbally. The software was again set up with Web VR using aframe.io .´╗┐
