There is also an interactive version of HOKs Lakeside Restaurant model which has augmented reality activation [using the associated tracker image] and that can further be explored in first-person mode.
The 'AR People' App does just that.
You can create your own 'Auras' and link them to visual triggers in the real world or you can activate content that has been created in collaboration with the 'AR people' and carries the 'AR people' content logo
Now schools, universities, charities and other organisations can teach or raise awareness by connecting powerful video content to images and objects in the real world. Teachers can make lessons and learning more fun by setting video content to emerge from text books, posters or displays in school corridors. The technology can augment paintings in an exhibition with figures seemingly stepping out of the image and narrating, while museums can overlay their artefacts and images with videos or 3D animations that explain their history and importance of the objects or even to show how they might have looked in the past.
How it Works
Simply launch the app and hold the your device over the trigger image, simple.
The app works by recognising Trigger Images –
which could be images in print, objects or real-world locations. Once detected, a number of different actions can occur,
either independently or in sequence:
Images are most typically brought to life with video content. Videos or animations, including transparent channels, can emerge from the Trigger Image with a cross-fade or eye-catching transition effect. The video continues to play in situ, although a “double tap” function can easily be added to allow full-screen mode.
Buttons and Images
Often placed alongside a video, icons or buttons can be set to launch a website or start another action. For example, a user could hover over one page of a catalogue and see a number of buttons appear, allowing access to a mobile website to purchase products.
Full 3D objects may be rendered in real time into the scene. For example, a 3D animated figure could appear on top of a news article. To see what is possible with the Aurasma 3D engine, select “3D Overlays” from the Aurasma menu screen.
How Do I Know Where Auras Are?
For all printed material, content will carry the “AR People” symbol, so that users know to look out for augmented content. There may also be a pictorial explanation to show users how they can bring the content to life.
AR Content allows you to see the world like never before:
• See marketing material come alive with videos right on the page.
• Buy items with direct mobile shopping links.
• Connect with links to web content and social media.
How to use the AR Content augmented reality app:
1) Look out for the AR Content logo.
2) Open the app and hold your device over the whole page, or product.
3) Be transported into a world of additional content!

We aim to develop individuals that are connected to the world and keen to expand their horizons - young people that are tuned into technology and know how to use it to their advantage.
We know that the world is changing and the way we work is evolving. New hardware such as tablets and smartphones have combined with apps, social media and online video to empower individuals to connect and communicate effectively. Byrchall understands this and believes that all students should learn to use available technologies if they are to have a clear, competitive advantage in life and work.
The Byrchall community has a long history of academic success dating back 500 years. In that time, many of our students have gone onto become global leaders in industry, finance and commerce. We are proud of their achievements and that over 91% of our present day learners achieve 5 five good GCSEs or more.
Our school’s performance can be largely credited to our excellent teaching team and support staff. We only employ people that want to make a positive difference to the lives of our students. All have a clear love of learning and their support and encouragement plays a significant part in ensuring we develop individuals that are visionaries - creative thinkers that want to succeed.
Byrchall’s broad and balanced curriculum, wider enrichment opportunities and clear focus on new technology place it at the forefront of secondary schooling in the North West region.
