Rosetta Stone Challenge – Success!!

March 31, 2012

Well, I’m in London for less than 48 hours before I fly out again but I stopped into the British Museum. I fired up the app, took a snapshot of the Rosetta stone to add it into the system and then let the app scan and it found it! I did come away with a lot of good experience though, the Rosetta stone itself is behind a glass case which is highly reflective and a constant stream of tourists taking pictures with flash’s on making the glass even more reflective so the number of feature points found is quite small, so that has given me something to think about. I have taken some pictures to prove it but to be honest the pics are pretty poor.

What I later did was test the app with a statue of Amenhopted and then remembered I had a screen capture app installed which gives a much better result as you can see below.
