Description:

Aurasma is a super cool augmented reality app. Aurasma creates "Auras" that allow you to hover over an object or image (like a poster on a wall) and another image or even a video will appear on the screen to give you more information. Sound confusing? Imagine this: A science teacher wants to teach her students about lab equipment and safety. An aura is created so that when the student scans eye goggles with the Aurasma app, a video about eye safety will begin to play on the iPad.
