Wishing You A Merry Christmas In Augmented Reality!

With the help of Muzar.org and their partners, the City of Manor has placed a virtual 3-D Santa Claus on City Hall for your viewing pleasure. This virtual Santa Claus is visible from up to 3 miles away, and demonstrates the new augmented reality (AR) technologies being developed for mobile devices. Currently, it is only visible to individuals with an iPhone or Android-based mobile device. In order to view you must download the free Layar application from your app-store, and launch the Seasons Greetings Layer. If you have any questions about how to view, please e-mail [email protected]. You can also send your family and friends an augmented reality greeting card at Muzar’s homepage at http://www.muzar.org.

The City of Manor and Manor Labs are currently working on bringing augmented reality technologies to a local government setting. For more information about how you can participate in this research and developed, please e-mail [email protected].

Thanks Andrew, we’re just starting to get our feet wet in Manor with AR. We are planning on deploying AR layers to compliment our current QR-code points-of-interest located on city infrastructure, construction projects, historic homes, etc.
