Powerhouse Discovers Augmented Reality

Powerhouse Animation ventured into the world of augmented reality last week after coming across Aurasma during SXSW. Aurasma is a free app that allows you to integrate virtual content with real life objects and images.

Check out this video we made of Powerhouse experimenting with our newfound love for Aurasma!

If you'd like to subscribe to the Powerhouse Animation channel please follow the simple instructions below:

Aurasma setup and subscription instructions:

1. On your smartphone or iPad, download the app Aurasma Lite and install it

2. The first time you run the app it will ask you if you already have the Aurasma image. Select yes-- this will bypass the a cumbersome tutorial.

3. Within the app, there is a button in the top left corner that looks like a radio tower. Select it to bring up the menu.

4. Within the menu, scroll to the right to show the search button. Select search, and type "Powerhouse" in the search bar.

5. The search results will display the Powerhouse channel (the powerhouse animation studios logo will be displayed), with a button on the right side to subscribe.

6. Select the subscribe button to join the channel. This will allow you to have access to auras that Powerhouse makes, and will also prompt you to register for an Aurasma account. The account will require an email and a password.

7. After you have made the account, select done. Now you have access to the auras powerhouse animation posts.
