Augmented Reality (AR) offers us a new way of seeing and interacting with our natural environment. In the not so distant past, specialised equipment was required to access the technology, none of which was widely accessible or easily portable. Today, technological advancements has made it possible for AR to be easily accessible through our mobile devices.
HP Reveal is a free app for iOS and Android-based mobile devices that provides a platform for anyone to explore augmented reality just about anywhere! It enhances our experiences by turning any distinctive surface pattern into an interactive display of animations, audio snippets, videos, graphics, and more.

Also, you can feel free to invite people to add on to your channel, and just like a podcast with ongoing episodes, an Aura library can grow overtime. No matter what purpose it is for, your channel is bound to grow into a hub with precious content that a community can create, share and update in.
