HOW TO SEE THE AUGMENTED REALITY VIDEOS?
Easy! Before you get to the opening, download the app to see behind the scenes videos from the artists.
Here’s how the developer describes the app: “HP Reveal changes the way we interact with the physical world. Discover augmented reality (AR) experiences, create your own AR, and share the magic with friends. Bring photos, posters, birthday cards, and more. With HP Reveal, print is only the beginning – and we can’t wait to see what you create!”
We can’t wait to see what these artists have created!
Stay tuned for more updates about the app and how to have the best time at the Art Opening.
