The future of Auckland in AR
In celebration of Idealog’s Tech issue, StaplesVR game developer Masaya Todoroki and creative Jason Delaveau used augmented reality to bring to life Guangyu Li’s cover art. "The AR artwork poses questions about the future of transport and engineering and further teases common and not so distant predictions of technological influence such as levitating buildings, hover cars and delivery drones," Delaveau says. "The AR app itself brings light to the integration of AR technology into the media and how we can soon expect augmented reality technology to redefine how traditional forms of media are consumed by everyday people. In the next few years, we’ll see print media become more interactive and ever-present through various AR goggles, mobile devices and projected holograms.” The IdealogAR app is available to download for free from both the Google Play Store and Apple App store.
