A device for interacting with at least one augmented object, where the augmented object comprises a physical object and an associated virtual object, said virtual object comprising at least one service definition element, where it is possible to connect to the augmented object via a first means of communication, said device comprising: A means of video capture, A user terminal, An automatic means of identifying the augmented object, A means of communication, capable of establishing a connection between the device and the identified augmented object, and to recover said service definition elements, A means of defining a control interface for the services of the identified augmented object according to said service definition elements, A reader, capable of reading the commands, in relation to said control interface, A means of communication, to transmit said commands to the augmented object for execution.
1. A device enabling a user, located in a user area, to interact with at least one augmented object present in an environment, said augmented object being located in an object area, the augmented object comprising a physical object and an associated virtual object, said virtual object comprising at least one service definition element for at least one service offered by said augmented object, said augmented object being able to be connected via a first means of communication and said device comprises:
A video camera, located in the object area, taking a video image, of at least one part of said environment,
one or more processors configured to transmit said video image of the object area to the user area,
A user terminal located in the user area, displaying said video image, in order to present to the user,
wherein the one or more processors is further configured to:
automatically identify the augmented object when the associated physical object is present in a field of view of the video camera,
establish a connection between the device and the identified augmented object, and to recover one or more service definition elements of services offered by said augmented object,
define a control interface for the services of the identified augmented object according to said one or more service definition elements, and to present said control interface of the identified augmented object to the user, through the user terminal,
receive, via the control interface presented on the user terminal, user commands for said services, in relation to said control interface, and
transmit said user commands to the augmented object, so that the physical object can execute said services.
