“I don’t listen to what art critics say. I don’t know anybody who needs a critic to find out what art is”

Jean-Michel Basquiat

Playing With Augmented Reality (Ar)

Adobe Aero

When you hit the Aero test links or scan the QR codes below, your iphone will open the Adobe ‘App Clip’ which launches the Augement Reality thingies. Test 1 is designed to be viewed on a ground surface, Test 2 is viewed on a vertical surface and Test 3 is designed to work on any horizontal surface, like a tabletop.

To view Aero Ar you don’t need to install an app. Instead, Aero uses an ‘app clip’, which is a lightweight version of an app that lets users experience some of the app’s functionality without needing to download and install the full app. Aero provides a lightweight viewer as an app clip.

At the time of writing (2/9/2024) App clips are not supported on Android devices but an equivalent Android instant app feature is coming soon.

All of these are works in progress. There are things I haven’t figured out yet, I’m often adding and tweaking things, there are bugs in the software, the application is still being developed by Adobe, blah…blah…blah
