Augmented Reality poster – find out where we’re up to

We’ve had a busy few months since we last posted and thought it about time we brought everyone up to date with the story so far.

Despite what the lack of blog posts might suggest, we’ve had an incredibly productive few months with our students and since the beginning of July we’ve attended a number of Higher Education conferences presenting about the project.

As is the nature of this project we have been innovating with our presentation techniques too.

170701 final poster

The image above is a digital version of a printed A0 poster we recently displayed at the University of Sheffield TELFest Conference on 7th July 2017. The poster has been digitally enabled with the augmented reality app Layar. This means that when you scan the poster using the mobile Layar app (available to download for Android or iOS here) the poster comes to life with videos, audio, models and all sorts of digital artefacts we’ve collected throughout the course of the project.

We wanted a really interesting way for the project to come to life for conference delegates, and in a way which embodied some of the technologies we have been encouraging our students to experiment with.

We were really pleased with the results and hope you enjoy finding out about the progress of our project through our poster too.


Give it a go and let us know what you think!
