As part of our ongoing exploration of the interaction possibilities of augmented reality, we released Aero One: an app that lets you place virtual instruments and audio recordings in space. Wave your phone like a virtual drumstick and hear the music come out of thin air!
At the core of Aero One is an augmented reality sandbox that lets you place audio bubbles in the 3D space around you. To play them, you physically move your smartphone into the bubble you want to play. The app also lets you record your own sounds to create your own custom instruments or place voice messages in space. To mix things up and give people something to play with out of the box, we added a collection of pre-made instruments like a harp, a drum kit and...a duck.
You can download Aero One for iOS . If you notice any bugs or glitches, please let us know at [email protected].
