Course Description

Augmented reality (AR), where digital objects are overlaid on the perceived environment, is an exciting new field that was popularized by Pokemon Go. Even retirees were chasing these animated characters as a way to get exercise. It's a little like a scavenger hunt, but the prizes can only be seen through a smartphone in the built environment. Using the new and free Reality Composer program, OLLI students will be able to easily create their own AR, share it with friends and family, and impress their grandchildren. Since AR is relatively new, you can view this five-minute video explaining how it works: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHGIRRskzzE. | Active participation.
