Augmented Reality with Aurasma:
A digitally enhanced version of the real world. Some elements of real content are augmented to include digital content or layers of information and media. Augmented Reality content can be accessed by scanning or viewing markers or images that trigger an action.
The Aurasma App:
Can be used to scan and create Augmented Reality content.
The Aurasma Studio:
Easier to use than the app to create AR content and offers more options.
Some vocabulary you need to know:
Overlay - the action, what happens when your trigger object is scanned.
Trigger image - what you will scan to make the action happen.
Aura – In Aurasma, the combination of your trigger image and overlay.
Channel – To share your auras with others, you must save them to a channel.
Follow – To use others’ trigger images you must follow them in Aurasma.
Let's Try it:
We will use this image as the overlay (action). When the vocabulary word (trigger) is scanned, this image will appear as a definition. You need to save this image to your device or take a picture of it with your camera on the device you are using to create your aura.
We will use this image to trigger the overlay above. When the trigger image is scanned by the user, the overlay image will appear.
