i commented out all the Vector references and replaced with Arrays. since you can see the Vector stuff, commented out, you can take this opportunity to see what lies in store for you with FP10 — typed arrays, goodie!

i also changed the project to target FP9, so you should be good to go with a File>Import>Flex Project.

also removed the FP10 3D example (it wasn’t working yet anyway. but will be soon…)

saqoosha just started a FLARToolkit forum on google groups:

hopefully a better place to discuss problems and successes than in the long comment threads on mikko’s and saqoosha’s blogs…

i’ve been getting my hands into fiducial tracking at work over the last few months, and successfully implemented reacTIVision for an exhibit. amazing software, easy to use right out of the box, and very fast and accurate. (thanks martin & co!)

when i came across the GE augmented reality thingy, i realized that that kind of experience can finally happen online. i took a look at FLARToolkit, and was simultaneously excited and stymied — so much potential, but tricky to use and understand.

i came across Mikko Haapoja’s excellent starter tutorial and got a much better understanding of the system. after a bit more digging, i decided to try to make FLARToolkit as accessible as reacTIVision.

a couple weeks later, i finally have a small framework put together that makes steps in this direction. behold, FLARManager v0.1.
