Day 26: Arloopa Studio
Get ready to be wowed! Not only is this a fantastic AR creation tool, but it's packed full of integrations that you'll love. To begin, the Arloopa Studio is one of the tools I often share in building your own AR experiences. In my video below, you'll find the simplicity of creating content using a trigger image, locations (scavenger hunts), and the latest update is WebXR. Test out this experience using your mobile device!
If you're wondering where I got my animated artwork above, I built it in Google Tilt Brush using my Oculus Quest. Tilt Brush now integrates artwork to publish directly to Sketchfab accounts, perfect for tools like Arloopa. In the Arloopa Studio, loading augmented reality content can come directly from Sketchfab, so let's unpack the app smashing happening in this experience: VR artwork in Tilt Brush (on the Quest) → Upload into Sketchfab → Connected to many different AR experiences with Arloopa (scavenger hunts, trigger images, WebXR). The possibilities are endless and if this blog doesn't get your creative juices flowing, then I don't know what will!
You don't have to own an Oculus Quest or a VR headset to use Arloopa Studio. I've created many AR experiences in The Immersive Classroom without using any virtual reality. The studio can support a simple augmented reality task of layering one photo on top of another.
