Aurasma App for iPad aurasma-icon.jpg

Description: Aurasma Lite is the free version of the Aurasma App. Aurasma developers describe the tool as one that "brings together the physical and virtual world." This app is available in the iPhone format (useable on the iPad) and uses the camera, GPS, compass, accelerometer and internet connection to provide recognition of an image to merge an augmented reality action. What is complex is made simple the this app. For example, the user can simply snap a picture of a book cover and then indicate what video to play when the picture of the cover is viewed in Aurasma. Think of the possibilities when touring a museum--as the picture appears in the viewfinder of Aurasma, a tour guide could appear in the frame and give background information on the painting.
