This paper presents an interactive “what-you-see-is-what-you-get” (WYSIWYG) method for creating textured 3-D models of real objects using video see-through augmented reality. We use a tracked probe to sample the objects' geometries, and we acquire video images from the head-mounted cameras to capture textures. Our system provides visual feedback during modeling by overlaying the model onto the real object in the user's field of view. This visual feedback makes the modeling process interactive and intuitive.
