How many cigarettes do you smoke everyday?1,5 or 10? Do you have any idea how your lungs is being damaged by your smoking habits?
So,are you worried? Or, do you want to quit smoking?Then how about using some augmented reality apps to reduce smoking habits?
Here is a new augmented reality (anti-smoking) apps which is developed by SapienNitro.
SapientNitro, has developed an augmented reality (AR) app to show smokers the damage the habit is doing to their lungs and provide them with additional impetus to quit.
What Is AR Lungs(anti-smoking) Apps?
The anti-smoking application, AR Lungs, employs a computer webcam or smartphone camera to superimpose medically correct digital lungs over the user’s image.
By using on-screen sliders, the user can input the number of years they have smoked and the number of cigarettes smoked per day.
A non-smoker would see healthy, pink lungs while someone who has smoked 15 cigarettes a day for 17 years would see a visual representation of the damage and discoloration their smoking has caused.
All you will need a computer with a webcam. First, download and print the AR ‘tag’ – www.arlungs.com/tag.pdf then click on http://www.arlungs.com/ and hold the tag in front of your chest facing the camera to make the lungs appear.
You can fix the lungs by selecting the tick-box “Fix Lung Position on Screen?”
By altering the sliders accordingly you will see a visual representation of likely damage sustained through smoking.
Bradley Gamage, Director at SapientNitro, says: “The immaturity of the technology has so far restricted AR to the ‘fun’ space. AR Lungs demonstrates the potential for AR to help raise disease awareness. With exciting breakthroughs, such as AR Lungs, we can expect AR to aid doctors in diagnosis and even to help during surgical procedures in the near future.”
