  • Enhanced interactive print experience- (brochures, flyers, posters, worksheets)
  • Museum interactivity- think about what a field trip might look like during an Ag safety day
  • AR browsers in the destination- virtual information in the real world to locate places and points of interest
  • Responsive experiences through gaming- participants can experience different historic and future events
  • Re-living historic life and events- visit a historic town the way it used to look like and see its virtual likeness as a 3D model

    The final blog will highlight AR apps that look at interactive print and creating your own AR experiences.
