What is Augmented Reality (AR)?
AR is the superimposition of a computer generated image on your view of the real world. Often with surprising and magical effects.

- Relies on special images to trigger content
- Requires a free app, Glimmer XP, that is available on Apple and Android phones
- Combines traditional art forms and next-generation technology
How do I view AR experiences?
Use the Glimmer XP app on your iOS or Android device to find AR Codes that let you know experiences are nearby.
I don't see any AR codes nearby. What can I do?
Not to worry! We have a number of exciting AR experiences available on our web site.
I found an AR code! What's next?
Each AR Code identifies a particular experience using the embedded QR code. Once we detect the QR code, the experience will load.
Umm, what if I can't seem to identify the experience?
You should cry. Haha, no. We have a solution. Just tap on the “Choose Experience” button and we’ll ask you where you’re at.
Yay, I've identified an experience! Now what?
Now it’s time to explore and be dazzled. Point your camera around to find markers that trigger an AR experience. Some markers are clearly identified, while others you may have to explore to find. The key is to have fun!
I have comments. Suggestions.
