Tap on your screen to populate your surroundings with life-size augmented reality flamingos. Start or join a flock! Collaborate on a flock with app users around you in a shared reality. Turn up your volume and dance in interspecies solidarity to original flamingo-inspired music. Snap photos and record videos to share. Pick up flamingo dance moves researched by scientists, and adopt a wild flamingo through a wetlands conservation initiative!

FLARMINGOS is a project of artist Kristin Lucas, produced through a Tech Residency at Pioneer Works in Red Hook, Brooklyn, and made in partnership with Tour du Valat research institute in Arles, France. FLARMINGOS are virtual representations of wild flamingos the artist has adopted. They are animated by human motion capture and a dynamic flocking algorithm that influences their collective behavior.

The shared reality feature requires a cellular or Bluetooth/Wi-Fi network and supports collaboration for up to 6 app users per flock, contingent upon network strength.

Performs best in a well-lit space.

The app is compatible with the Apple iPhone 6s and higher, Apple 9.7-inch iPad (5th and 6th Generation), Apple 10.5-inch iPad Pro, and Apple 12.9-inch iPad Pro. The app runs on iOS 12.

It’s ok

The flarmingos app is ok I’m not sure why but it doesn’t really work on my phone and i don’t know if it will stay like that forever but if I could do more with it I would say that this is a good AR game


Am I doing it wrong?

When I opened the app and clicked all the things I saw and buttons music turned on, nothing else until I say start a flock I clicked that and it told me the name of my flock I mean I would like to name it then it said look at the ground and move and touch the ground to start a flock I clicked okay to what it told me to do it didn’t do ANYTHING I had a black screen and stuff telling me to look at the ground it wasn’t specific telling me to point my device at the ground or something else if I’m doing it wrong or doing the wrong things I’m sorry because what made me think I did it wrong is because I see other reviews with t stars so maybe some people know how to do it, please respond.

I hate it.

This looked super fun I thought I was gonna see flamingo’s..But when I got in it just said Look at the floor and move around, I pressed everything. I pressed the music button and it just turned on the music. I pressed the button with flamingos on it and it just said Start a flock of flamingo’s, it kept going away and going on. I pressed it and it still didn’t work. This is HORRIBLE.
