As we disclosed a few weeks ago, our development team has been working hard to implement a new visualization mode for every experience enjoyed using the AR-media Player, the Immersive Mode, an AR feature to be used in combination with your Mobile AR headset of preference, including Google Cardboard.
Today we are glad to announce that the Immersive Mode is finally available to all AR-media users, including the ones with a Free plan.
Using the Immersive Mode is easy! You will find a new button available when you play any experience, just tap on it and your display will switch into a split mode. Then simply use your smartphone in combination with your Mobile AR headset and you’ll be ready to enjoy a truly immersive Augmented Reality experience.
What kind of hardware do you need for Mobile AR?
In order for you to enjoy the immersive mode, you need some kind of device that allows you to exploit the split screen functionality, typical of stereoscopic visualization.
There are loads of products on the market, from entry level to semi-professional.
A very popular Mobile AR option is the Google Cardboard, available for a few dollars from several eCommerce stores and distributors, including customizable units.
What use cases the AR-media Immersive Mode enables?
There are several scenarios where the AR-media Immersive Mode can prove to be useful. By their nature, certain kinds of experiences are best enjoyed with a Mobile AR headset, just think of 3D models in 1:1 scale that allow the viewer to walk inside out the object for proper exploration, or think about entertaining 360 experiences.
In general the Immersive Mode provides a cost effective way to provide truly immersive experiences for areas such as Cultural Heritage, Architecture Engineering & Construction (AEC), Design and Prototyping and even Education.
