The Knowledge Media Institute's Paul Hogan has developed a mixed Augmented Reality / Virtual Reality mobile app to complement its Christmas card this year.

Users can simply point their device at the card and see it come to life. They can also use the app with Google Cardboard and enter a virtual winter wonderland and take a sleigh ride through the snowy landscape.

Although this is some festive fun it is a way to demonstrate the use of AR and VR in action. Google Cardboard is an inexpensive way to experience this technology, there are however other more sophisticated VR headsets availble on the market.

To get the app for both iOS and Android plus a copy of the card visit the URL below and sign in using your OUCU from your mobile device and follow the instructions.
