I mentioned that I created a virtual reality (VR) application for Face of Homelessness in a previous post. I want to share some experiments in augmented reality (AR) in this post. If these terms are entirely new to you, or if you need a refresher on the differences between AR and VR, here is a brief article explaining things.
For this project, I enhanced the images in my Face of Homelessness print catalog with rich media. Each spread in the book included a portrait of the interviewee and the transcribed content. My AR application projects a video version of the interview next to the print spread anytime a page is turned. An iOS device with the app installed is required to view the project.
