Abstract

This paper describes the concept of a dynamic blocks platform, called ARBlocks, based on projective augmented reality and tangible user interfaces aiming educational activities. In it, the information is displayed by projectors, that exhibit the content only on the blocks using a projector calibration technique and the blocks are tracked through a frame marker. Despite the platform is still under development, some results regarding the frame marker tracking and the projection was achieved.
