[prMac.com] Ann Arbor, Michigan - Saagara today officially launched its new Augmented Reality app, Saagara AR. It is available free of charge for both iPhone/iPad and Android operating systems. The company hopes the launch of this app will further its mission of improving health and raising consciousness while utilizing innovative mobile technology.
Saagara's founder and CEO Bobby Peddi says of the AR experience: "It is the embodiment of what Saagara does. By combining extraordinary images, new technology, and mobility, we're giving people something magical, unlike anything they've ever seen before".
How to Use Saagara AR:
Open the Saagara AR app on your device and go into the camera view mode. Pull up target images from the Saagara AR Collection at Saagara online. Point the camera at any poster or card image to experience the augmented reality for yourself. You can also download and print small versions of the AR target images free of charge.
Stunning Health Posters and Portable Wallet Cards:
Posters and wallet cards are available to purchase, for those who wish to share the app with friends, clients, and the like. The AR sets also make unique gifts. The cards provide a supremely portable user experience that one can share on the go, while the posters provide an attractive, multi-purpose decoration for doctor's offices, yoga studios, holistic health centers, and the wellness-conscious home.
What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented reality (AR) is a live view of a real-world environment whose elements are augmented by computer-generated sensory input, such as sound and video. In Saagara AR, the live view (generated using the camera on a mobile device) is augmented by text and audio explanations of health and wellness concepts, as well as 3D graphics which illustrate those concepts. The app also provides information on Saagara's other apps, which expand upon these concepts and offer instruction for various healthy and mindful practices.
Saagara hopes to enrich people's lives with their stunning AR-enhanced posters. Saagara AR will provide a fun, innovate way to learn about health. This will help to bridge the gap between health and technology, two increasingly important areas of people's lives. Saagara also hopes to attract more people to the field of health, by showcasing healthy living in such an engaging way.
