Three Augmented Reality Tools That Are Great for the Office
Here are three augmented reality tools you can use right now:
- An Animated Dollar Bill
Download the Aurasma app and find a dollar bill. Turn to the ONE side and point the app at the screen. You’ll see a short patriotic video play in the air! Aurasma isn’t just for animating bills… you can make your own that anyone can see – even superimpose a video over the company logo.
- An Instant Translator
Now download Google Translate and click the camera icon. Scroll over any printed material and use the settings over the viewfinder to translate the text into any of dozens of languages right on your screen.
- A Restaurant Picker
You may already have Yelp installed on your phone. Open it up and find the MORE button in the menu. When you choose Yelp Monacle, your screen becomes transparent. And as you look around you, the reviews will pop up over the restaurants.
