Augmented Reality is the process where computer generated graphics are added to real life photos to provide additional information to the user.
With there always on connections and high quality cameras the current generation of smart phones provide a natural home for Augmented Reality, and it’s now possible to create your own AR scenes with the Aurasma App on the iPhone.
In this example I’m going to attempt to add a Augmented Reality Scene to my website.
How to create an Augmented Reality Scene with Aurasma on the iPhone.
1) Decide on the image that you want to trigger the AR and the image that will be overlaid over the original image.
In this example I’m going to create a scene where a picture of an iPhone will appear over the logo on my website.
2) Load the Aurasma App on the iPhone, and click on the camera icon to start the process.
5) Press the camera logo on the top right hand corner of the screen to capture the trigger image.
6) You can now select the image that will be overlaid over the real world scene. You can select images or video from blinkx your iPhone or from the Aurasma on line Library
