Augmented Reality With Aurasma – NEW!

Augmented Reality With Aurasma – NEW!


(Ages 8-12) Our exclusive new program introduces you to the ‘magic’ of Augmented Reality (AR). Working in pairs, you will bring the static world to life, creating content-rich interactive experiences in 3D and even 4D with the help of avatars, 3D models, animations and your own creativity. This powerful technology allows you to create and publish your own Augmented Reality content. Talking newspapers, holding a NASA spacecraft in your hand and bringing your lip syncing avatar to life will become your new augmented reality. After class, friends and family can download the free app and experience your interactive, engaging content come to life!
