This Augmented Reality takes POI AR apps to the next level by using a technology called 'Glue' which allows not only images and text to be attached to each Point Of Interest, but also video and 3D models. The app uses the camera to recognise trigger-images and load the attributes associate with them. It also allows video to be overlayed to the trigger-image meaning that it appears to float, sometimes subtly animating the image. Loads of wonderful potential for any teachers fluent in programming xml code. However, for the rest of us Junaio have developed a non-programmer version.
At the moment, it only allows video and 3D models to be attached but hopefully images, text and floating video will arrive soon.
This is fantastic! The idea is this: scan any barcode, attach your own content as 'bits'. Bits can be text, image, audio or video. I can't wait for an excuse to use this. Why not use it with a recycle & reuse project. Wouldn't it be nice to scan a barcode from a can of coke or bottle of water and see children's ideas of how the packaging could be reused or turned into something else? Please post a comment here if you use this with your class. I'd be really interested to see how it is used.
