Layar’s Stiktu is an AR (Augmented Reality) app that allows anyone to tag on anything in the real world. You are no longer bounded by special (ugly) code that the app can recognize. Just scan and tag any real life item and anyone who scans it will be able to see what you have tagged.
The process is very simple. First, you will need to get a Stiktu (or Layar) account to log in. Next, scan on any object that you wish to tag (scan means capturing it with the camera). Resize the object until you are satisfy. Add stickers, text on the object for others to discover.
That is it! You can now publish it so that when someone saw the object that you scan, they can use the app to see the content.
The only issue (and a major one) is that you will need to load the scan file (means discover what others had scanned) and then point the camera to the object. If it recognizes it, it will show the content in AR.
That means you have to know what you are looking for in order to see the content. At first, I thought I could just point the camera in any direction and the Stiktu will be able to identify it. However, it is not the case.
It will be good for playing games where the clues are embedded into the object. Once you identify it, you can unlock the clues.
Anyway, for your information, after I updated the app to the latest version, it crashes on me every time. I have to uninstall and reinstall to resolve this issue.
