This course introduces Android developers to Augmented Reality concepts and applications. AR apps are already available on smartphones and tablets, but in the continuing months and years, with the wide adoption of smart-glasses, they will redefine our lives by blending the physical world with virtual worlds and shifting applications from our device screens directly to our eyes. Starting from the theory, hands-on examples will enable students to quickly develop and deploy amazing Augmented Reality applications, either using low level algorithms or leveraging high-quality AR frameworks like Vuforia and Metaio.
