Zappar is an application that, according to developers, allows you to "combine" the digital world with things around you. It uses augmented reality technology - AR, allowing you to "animate" various objects in the camera lens of a portable device.
Yes, the program does not perform any practical functions, but it allows you to surprise others with the capabilities of modern technologies. Unfortunately, due to the need to build and display three-dimensional models, Zappar works exclusively with "powerful" Android devices.
Revitalizing things with Zap code
To use the application, just start it, open access to the use of the built-in camera and focus it on the subject, marked with a special Zap code. Typically, these codes are used for various promotions, placing on food, posters, books and other things. After the “revitalization” of the 3D model, you can view it from different angles and take a photo (including a “selfie”). By the way, as we said earlier, some models are animated.
Relatively old and low-power devices do poorly precisely with the “recreation” of those. Among the shortcomings of the application, we note the lack of a Russian interface. However, this is not a problem - to start the scan you have to press just a couple of keys. The application menu is very convenient and allows you to quickly switch between important functions in a few clicks.
