Augmented Reality Made Easy with 4D Studio Tutorials


Creating augmented reality has never been so easy until now! DAQRI 4D Studio gives educators and students the ability to easily create experiences and instantly publish them to share with the world. As our friend Katie Ann said during her augmented reality presentation at Podstock this year, "If you can copy and paste, and drag and drop, then you can create augmented reality." Each experience created and published by in 4D Studio for Education can be viewed using the target image and free DAQRI application.

Transform your tabletop into a FairyTale World with Enchantium



A recent update has added a whole new experience to the fun filled Enchantium application! Fairytale joins fisticuffs and musical strings in Enchantium's toy chest. Fairytale is different for other experiences in the toy chest because it uses a local point cloud and surface mapping technology. Enchantium's fairytale detects the surface and objects around the target to create the experience. Follow the steps below to transform your tabletop into a fairytale world!

1. Pick a flat surface and place 2-4 solid objects around the 4D Fairy Tale target.(Pictured below)
2. Open Enchantium app, press "Enter 4D" in the main menu, scan the 4D Fairy Tale target, then press "Tap to Start"
3. Scan the 4D Fairy Tale target again to activate the spellbinding experience. (Looks like fairy dust) You are able to begin the story once two objects have been detected but increasing to four objects makes the experience even more engaging! (Blue swirl will appear on objects that have been detected.)
4. Once you hit “begin” the objects turn into different elements of the Fairy Tale. 
5. You can create the environment using the four terrain options in the bottom left corner. 
6. Tap the trees to discover the magical pouch. Touch the magical pouch to bring the Fairy Tale to life. Tap the stones to help discover the key and complete the stage.

Once you have completed the fairytale experience, move your objects to a different location around the target and start again. This will create a whole new magical experience.
