App of the Week: Aurasma – Augmented Reality

Augmented Reality is a view of a “physical, real-world environment whose elements are augmented (or supplemented) by computer-generated sensory input such as sound, video, graphics or GPS data.”*  Aurasma is an app that allows you create and view augmented reality experiences.  With this app you can take an image of an actual item in your environment (called a trigger image) and to it add an image or video (an overlay).  When the user points the mobile camera at the actual item the overlay displays.


  • Use a book cover to trigger a video of the literary analysis of the book.
  • Use a scientific poster image to trigger a video of the experiment or an explanation of the video.
  • Use a picture of a painting to trigger the artist’s explanation of the painting.
  • Use a picture of a building in town to trigger a video of the history of the video or a historical image of the building.
