iPad 2 augmented reality app teased in official video

Second-gen Apple tablet bags first of presumably many AR apps

Developer Total Immersion has unveiled what is being tipped as the first augmented reality app for the recently launched Apple iPad 2 as AR Magic Mirror is demoed in an official teaser video.

Demonstrated in the video below, AR Magic Mirror utilises both the iPad 2’s forward-facing and rear-mounted cameras with augmented reality overlaying a variety of comedy accessories on to user’s faces such as cartoon-styled glasses, oversized wigs and Iron Man masks.

Giving an insight into the expansive future of augmented reality and its incorporation in iPad applications the video also teases the possibility of decorating an apartment and viewing AR furniture within a room using nothing more than a QR card and the iPad 2.

Total Immersion co-founder and CEO, Bruno Uzzan has spoken out on his excitement for augmented reality implementation on the iPad 2. He said: “This second generation iPad will be a key enabler to what we will soon see in a massive range of powerful augmented reality applications.”

He added: “With the portability, processing power and broad consumer adoption of the iPad 2, a simple face tracking app today could soon become an essential makeover tool with beauty products at retail.  Likewise a traditional game of online chess could become a massive, multiplayer game in the real world playing alongside vivid 3D characters and environments.”
