Recently, Pokémon Go has taken the world by storm. One of the most interesting and engaging parts of this game is the use of augmented reality, or AR. AR is not a new idea, but Pokémon Go is one of the first apps to really connect with a mainstream audience.
While AR can get very deep and complicated, the basic concepts are quite simple. In this course, Envato Tuts+ instructor Derek Jensen will teach you how to use one of the most fundamental of these concepts, markers. A marker is an image or object in the real world that the AR app projects virtual content onto. Follow along and you'll learn how to create a virtual birthday cake that will be projected onto a real plate!
