REPLICATE – cReative-asset harvEsting PipeLine to Inspire Collective-AuThoring and Experimentation


REPLICATE‘s main goal is to stimulate and support collaborative creativity for everyone anywhere and anytime (ubiquitous co-creativity). To achieve this goal, the H2020 project, in which GraphicsMedia.net partner Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) is participating, will address different aspects that currently complicate the process of content creation and collaborative co-creation

REPLICATE aims to build upon leading research into the use of Smartphones and their sensors to deliver robust image-based 3D reconstruction of objects and their surroundings via highly visual, tactile and haptic user interfaces. In order to deliver real-time, interactive tools for high-quality 3D asset production, the project will balance device-based vs. cloud-based computational loading, rather than simply replacing regular computers by mobile devices. In this way, REPLICATE will facilitate everyone to take part in the creative process, anywhere and anytime, through a seamless user experience, ranging from the capturing of the real-world, modifying and adjusting objects for flexible usage, and then finally repurposing them via co-creative, MR workspaces to form novel creative media or through physical expression via rapid prototyping.
