Figment AR - Day 27 of #31DaysofARVRinEDU
I’m thrilled to provide the #31DaysofARVRinEDU event! Each day in March will include an augmented (AR) or virtual reality (VR) resource to bring into the classroom.
Have you ever wanted to be transported to another dimension, maybe like Dr. Strange walking through a portal? You're in luck! Using ARKit/ARCore technology, our device cameras scan our space to create AR Portals in an app called Figment AR. If your mind is racing with ideas, keep reading.
The app allows the user to upload 3D objects into your space such as 3D emoji's, but I believe the difference in this resource is the portals. Drag a window into your classroom and make the window larger or smaller by pinching closed or open.
Students now have the opportunity to walk through AR portals available in the Figment AR app, but more importantly, they can transform what's in the portal. There are a few 360 pictures and videos built in the app, but uploading your own 360 picture/video is also possible.
Download the Figment AR app (iOS & Android) on ARKit/ARCore compatible devices.
Join the #ARVRinEDU chat starting back next Wednesday! Each Wednesday evening reveals new AR/VR tools.
