Men of Money uses augmented reality in order to teach users about United States history. The project tries to combat the issue of people not knowing about history. The goal is that a deeper knowledge of history will cause more people to vote in elections because they will understand how the results of elections will shape their future. Augmented reality and 3d printed models work together to create an immersive game-like experience; this allows users to both see and hear the men talking about themselves. Animoji is also used in order to record the audio of the men. The user will come away from the project having learned about different people in the history of The United States. Anyone from a young student to a deeply knowledgeable history buff will enjoy the app, which is designed to be accessible to all ages, both socially and educationally.

U.S Currency does its job very well; being money, but one thing it doesn't do is teach about the history behind the presidents, monuments, and buildings it displays. By using Augmented Reality the app Men of Money can educate anyone with a phone and a full wallet about the presidents. Everyone from educators to animators to apprentices can learn more about U.S. currency and the history behind it. The hope is that by using this app more people will become interested in U.S. history and its presidents. By using Augmented reality the app is able to project a 3d model both onto and surrounding the bill without needing a physical object to be present; by doing this the experience is much more portable and accessible because all you need is right in your pocket. Vuforia allows you to track an image target in the real world by using cameras. This also allows you to move your camera around the bill and interact with different parts of the model.

Puppy love

Puppy Love has a four-fold purpose: To provide people who cannot afford or aren't ready for a real dog with the experience of having one, to help train potential dog owners in the care and responsibility required, to show potential dog owners the reward of owning a dog, and helping to promote the idea of adopting a dog from a shelter rather than buying a puppy from a breeder or store. It does all of these and more by using augmented reality or “AR” to place the user’s virtual pet into reality. After picking the perfect dog from the Virtual Shelter, the user gets to bring it home and play with it similarly to how one would with a real dog. Pets, and more specifically dogs, are at the top of many children’s wish lists. While their intentions in getting a dog are good, not all children are ready for a pet. “Puppy Love” helps children learn the responsibility and consistency that comes with owning a pet. It also shows potential dog owners the reward of owning a dog, as well as the not so rewarding things, like cleaning up after your dog.
“Puppy Love” uses a software called Vuforia to project AR dogs onto a phone screen and into the real world. The dogs are made in MagicaVoxel and later animated to make them more lifelike. Puppy Love uses the idea of truly learning pet care and responsibility by actually doing it. By moving your phone or interacting with the screen, you are also interacting with your dog. The more you play, the more the user and their said pet to bond with each other. The dog will let you know how it is feeling depending on how it’s tail moves.

Pet companion app - Dogs are some of the easiest pets to get companionship from. Most dogs are kid friendly and so much love to their family. So, what family wouldn't want a dog? One of the biggest reasons parents refuse to get there children dogs is because dogs are to much work to take care of, almost like "an extra kid". Before refusing to get a dog because of its needs how about understanding what its like taking care of a dog without investing the money into getting one. The Pet Companion app allows the user to do everything with a dog you'd do in real life through a phone screen. The user adopts a dog, names the dog, and brings it home. Then until the user feels they're ready to get a real dog the user will walk, discipline, train, and feed the virtual dog. There is also an information sheet on the app giving information on how to care for a dog. By interacting with the dog through your phone you learn so much and hopefully gain enough confidence that you can take care of a dog in real life. This app was used with Unity and Majicavoxel.

fire escape presentation

An AR app that leads students out of a "burning building". AR fires and special effects pop up on the students phone when they find image targets that the computer recognizes. The AR fires create virtual obstacles for the students try to avoid.

Sometimes in schools students blow off fire drills or ignore them, If there was a real fire those students would be in trouble. So, using their phone to simulate a fire could better educate students on how to escape one.

The creators used rhino to make image targets that show up as fire, water and arrows on the users phone. They wanted to make something that could train people for fire escape routes. The user only has to get the app, and use any smartphone or tablet with a working back facing camera to find the safest way out of their building.

THE FIRE ESCAPE APP is for school fire drills so the user can learn many ways to escape a fire. the app will help learn many other ways to get out of a fire because all fires are not going to be in the same the app is an improvement on a fire drill because it allows the user to practice multiple different scenarios and let the user  reach the exit without obstruction.

The fire escape project is made to demonstrate the motion of putting out a fire and avoiding fire to make the drills more realistic, different triggers interact with the Augmented Reality app. The user will hold a phone that has the AR app on it and will be taught how to put out fires and make a path to  safety.

The problem is that  Students are often under prepared for fires and don't think of or know about multiple exits multiple way to get out of a fire in schools and to make it easier for firefighters to improve there speed 

the  that we are using is vuforia and unity to add the image targets and the effects.

there are not any other apps like this for students and fire fighters.

This app can be used with an app on the phone. there may be a headset version.

Natural Disaster Simulator is an Augmented Reality game in which a player can learn what to do in the case of an earthquake or other natural disaster as they  interact with their surroundings through their phone screen. When their camera recognizes an image target (like a coaster or placemat), 3D image hazards like knifes, cups or plates will pop up and the player will have to dodge broken items, hide under something sturdy, or stay in a safe area to avoid getting hurt. When the player looks at a flat surface (e.g. a table) they will see a scene of a city being destroyed by an earthquake. 

Natural Disaster Simulator aims to teach people (for example, someone who live in Massachusetts and doesn’t experience many earthquakes) how to react and stay safe in the case of an outlier natural disaster. It can also be useful for people who just moved to or are temporarily staying in areas with a high risk of earthquakes, tsunamis, or hurricanes. In the 1970’s, the number of reported annual natural disasters worldwide was 78. Now, it has jumped to 780, mostly because of a rising tide. It is now more important than ever for people to become educated about how to stay safe.

 An interactive AR experience that immerses the user in a simulation of a natural disaster by using real-world and AR components. 

The Natural Disaster Simulator shows what could happen at a very high scale natural disaster. This application can be used by anyone who due to where they live or to their professional needs training in or is interested in what to do in different natural disasters.  The intent was to provide people who live or are staying in an area vulnerable to one of these natural disasters with concrete knowledge of what to do in that situation.  Or if people want they can use the application for fun while still learning what to do in that situation. The Natural Disaster Simulator was made with some props in Unity and some in the real world. Printed-out stickers are placed around the room to show the program where some different props are located throughout the room. The user will hold up their phone and look through the camera to get the full experience. There haven't been many applications using AR that look at these big events that can take the lives of many and help the people in the natural disaster know what to do to stay safe in these scary events.
