WHAT ARE AUGMENTED REALITY FINISHER MEDALS?
At first glance Augmented Reality Finisher Medals look like your typical finisher medal-- they’re fun, made from metal, and come attached to a colorful ribbon. But when you scan them with the CoolEvents AR mobile phone app, they come alive. Each medal launches an augmented reality experience that transforms your medal into something exciting and unique.
WHAT IS AUGMENTED REALITY?
Through a newer technology called Augmented Reality, Augmented Reality Finisher Medals combine the real and digital worlds to create a new experience for the senses. AR typically uses a camera to place objects in your physical space via your phone screen. This technology will superimpose sounds, 2D graphics, and 3D graphics on the real world.
IS IT LIKE VIRTUAL REALITY?
Augmented Reality is like the cousin of Virtual Reality (“V.R.”) because they’re from the same family but the two are very different. Augmented Reality combines the real and the digital worlds, while Virtual Reality is a fully computer-generated world. A.R. adds to the reality you would ordinarily see instead of completely replacing it.
