Chris Cameron November 10, 2015

BLOODWORTH

In a technologically advanced near future, where people upload memories onto “Thoughtshare,” Special Agent Brenda Bloodworth heads up a special FBI task force that solves crimes by diving into these memories.

At least that’s is the setting for “BLOODWORTH,” the latest comic from author Daniel Corey. And what better way for a comic book about a techy future to grab readers’ attention than with a bit of impressive tech of its own?

That’s why if you scan the cover of BLOODWORTH with the Layar App, the magic of Augmented Reality brings the cover to life with a video previewing the forthcoming series of comics.

Girlfriend Surprised by Interactive AR Valentine’s Day Card

Chris Cameron February 26, 2015

Greeting cards are an excellent example of an everyday object that can become magical with a touch of Augmented Reality.

Just a few weeks ago was Valentine’s Day, and if you think you did something special for your loved one, we’re pretty sure one guy – Vashner Muhi from Sydney, Australia – has you beat. Vashner used the Layar Creator to create a personalized, interactive Valentine’s Day card for his girlfriend. And of course, she loved it.

“Being a graphic designer by occupation, I’m always trying new styles and techniques to be innovative and always grow in the field,” Vashner said. “So I got curious about Augmented Reality because I’ve never had previous experience with it.”

Vashner inserted a “SCAN ME” card into his Valentine’s Day card for his girlfriend, which accompanied her favorite flowers. By scanning the card, his girlfriend was able to watch a personalized video message from Vashner, with hints at where they would go on the special day.

“Layar was the best and did exactly what I wanted to surprise my girlfriend,” Vashner said.

Check it out yourself by scanning Vashner’s card at our Get Inspired page.
