R U McSafe Augmented Reality

Official Description  

“What is the R U McSafe Augmented Reality App?

The R U McSafe app uses stunning Augmented Reality (AR) to showcase health and safety in the workplace. You can use your mobile device to view various different safety scenarios in realtime/space (using the printed target provided)

You can move the mobile device at any angle and the 3D simulation will stay in relation to space around you in real-time as long as the printed marker is constantly in view.

Get the marker:

What Apple device do I need?
The APP can be loaded installed from Appstore on iPhone 4 / iPad 2 or newer.

What easy steps do I need to do before I can view the Amazing R U McSafe Augmented Reality?

Step 1 Print the image of the Marker (This is important as you will need the image printed and placed on the desk/table in front of you) – Why? The printed image is called a marker or target and will be the ‘stage’ where the 3D objects will magically appear from. Without the target the APP will not function.

Install the APP ?

Step 1 Install the App – This will take a few minutes dependent on connection speed

Step 2 Once the App is installed – run the App

Step 3 Once open simply position your mobile device or tablet so that the printed marker fills the screen when viewed from above. Keep the printed marker onscreen at all times and watch the 3D appear as if they are right in front of you!

You can interact with the engaging 3D animation by using your finger to spin the icons and then select the scenario you wish to view.1
