What happens when you combine the powerful Unity Game Engine with the real world?

Come find out this summer at Augmented Reality camp, where you will learn how to make games and apps that combine the real world with a computer generated one that you create yourself!

Campers will learn to use Unity with  VuforiaTM to transform a phone into a window that shows your real environmental surroundings combined with virtual elements created for gameplay experiences in augmented reality. Think Pokémon GO, but you create all of the elements and gameplay!

Projects may include:

Fruit & Veggie Choppers Delicious Fruit and veggies fly around you as use a real playing card to slice them in half!

Magic Show  –  You make virtual objects appear out of thin air and disappear again!

Virtual Pet  Create a pet that you can feed, teach tricks, and move around in the real world!  Your pet’s size and energy can increase as he/she eats, exercises, and finds virtual bones that spawn around you!

At Camp we also explore how Augmented Reality is changing the world and why major companies like Apple and Google think it will be the next big thing!

Valuable Learning Opportunities:

Learn to Work with Unity: Learn to program and develop games with a powerful engine that has been used to make games such as Temple Run, Kerbal Space Program, and Hearthstone.

Be On The Cutting Edge: Augmented Reality is the newest of the new in technology. Campers will get to experiment with an endless world of possibilities that’s only beginning to be explored.

Making an Awesome App: Create and take home an amazing Android app and guess what – Unity is free! Continue developing your app at home!

The Big Picture: Learn how AR is going to change the world and what the future might hold.

Combine Real-World Environments with Gameplay:  Now gameplay exists in the real world, your world, and you can fuse the two together for an awesome experience!

Super Fun: AR Camp is about learning, but also having a blast – after all, it is camp!  Join us in a super fun environment where you can create awesome games that blow your family and friends away!

Campers receive a Lavner Camps T-Shirt and bring home their projects at the end of the week!
