Today is the day when we exit our common world and step into the augmented reality universe. Here, in AndroidZoom, we’ve come across three apps that feature this kind of great experience and we want to share them with all of you.
The first one is called Augment and it helps you picture how a wallpaper would fit in your wall (although you can replace the concepts “wallpaper” and “wall” for anything else) just by using a special marker and setting it where you want it to be. The application can be used to decorate your bedroom or even as a tool for interior decorators, so it’s pretty useful altogether. If you aren’t anyone in the trade, don’t worry, Augment has a gallery of 3D items -and the option to create your own- to play around between the real world and the augmented one.
AR Blitz is a simple game where you need to print out the marker and start playing the game by trying to hit all the shapes that keep coming out of the holes. Although this game needs some improvements in terms of playability, it definitely has potential and could become a great and innovative app. It’s interesting because you can easily let your imagination run wild and try to foresee how future augmented reality games will be. .
Chinese Butterflies, seems even a weirder game at first (catching butterflies?), but it turns out to be a really entertaining and fun application for everyone. Your goal is, as we just said, to catch as many butterflies as possible by following the green arrows that appear on screen and turning your phone down quickly -as if it was a butterfly net- once you spot one.
With these three applications, we want to encourage you to take a little break from the usual and try these innovative experiences in the augmented reality world.
What do you think about them? What does the future hold for us?
