All is not what it seems, because at first glance this is an image that could be used during Advent in preparation for Christmas. However this is also a trigger image for some augmented reality. If you follow the instructions below then what you see in your smartphone will transform into a mini movie using a David Adam prayer.
You can read about the basics and how it could be used here. I first came across this in a training session earlier in the year and have blogged about the concept here. It’s well worth playing around with this to see what is possible, although an Android or Apple device is fairly essential kit to achieve this! Sorry everyone else.To make the most of this Free Advent resource and to gain access to the visual reflections follow the steps below:
1. Search for Aurasma in the Apple or Android app stores and download it for free.
2. Follow the registration procedure.
3. Using the search facility at the bottom, search for the “Traces of Advent” channel and subscribe to it.
4. Hold your phone over one of the trigger images until it loads the reflection.
The reflections are taken from Traces of Glory by David Adam
