A complete review of history of ARToolKit since its creation. ARToolKit was developed in 1999 when Hirokazo Kato arrived at the HITLab. The first demonstration have been at SIGGRAPH 1999 for the shared space project. The support of Windows DirectShow Video have certainly help to a large scale use for a lot of exhibition.

Large modification have been made from the last years (multiplatform, better tracking algorithm). We try to identify the main improvements of each versions in this page (intermediate version without official release are not described).

The name below the version is mainly related to the people that deliver the distribution, since the original creators of ARToolKit remained H. Kato and M. Billinghurst. The bold versions are main official release.
