Course Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Harrison Hutcheon, and welcome to my course, AR Interactions and Worldspace UI in Unity. I'm a product developer at EQ Works Toronto specializing in interactive digital media. Augmented reality applications can be more than just super imposing 3D objects over a real-world setting. Interactivity in an AR app can engage users, encouraging them to explore your application further and bring the subject of your application to life. In this course, we are going to explore the different types of interactivity for AR applications. Some of the major topics that we will cover include intuitive and engaging AR interactivity, World Space user interfaces, multi-leveled World Space menus, and a simple AR target shooting minigame. By the end of this course, you'll know how to create an AR experience that engages users to explore the information being presented. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with basic Unity game development and behavior scripting. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn augmented reality interactivity with the AR Interactions and Worldspace UI in Unity course at Pluralsight.
