1. Snap a photo of any flat object
2. Pick a photo, video, or 3D model to overlay on top of it
3. Done!

You’ve made your first halo! Now, scan the object (a book cover, textbook image, postcard, etc.), and watch the overlay spring to life. No technical know-how required.

Teachers, whether your class is in person or remote, use Halo AR to create learning opportunities for your students anywhere, anytime.

• Tag shared course materials (e.g. textbook diagrams or worksheets) with explanatory image or video overlays.
• Ask your students to record their own explanation to demonstrate understanding!
• Attach a 3D model to a postcard, then move the postcard around to intuitively manipulate and examine the 3D model in all directions
• Create a scavenger hunt around the house, classroom, or neighborhood
• Assemble a deck of flashcards that can be scanned for keyword or concept review
• Bring yearbook photos and hallway posters to life (Daily Prophet, anyone?)
• Your great idea that we haven’t thought of yet!

Ready to share the amazing halos you’ve created with your students, or the world? First, create an account to save your halos and organize them into collections (by class, activity, etc.). Then, anyone who follows your collections will see your halos appear magically before their eyes.

All you need to get started is an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch with ARKit.
