The Actual World of Virtual Reality

For several years now, EMAS study tours have included a brochure that gives basic information about the sites visited and can sometimes even help as an aide memoire when you look at the photos that you took on the trip.

Printed brochures are fine, but they have their limitations.  Wouldn’t it be nice if they could include additional material, such as short videos?

Well, thanks to modern technology, they can.

If you have an iOS or Android smartphone or tablet, you can use an amazing free app called Aurasma.

With this app you can view images that have added content and your mobile device will show you the added video.

The brochure that will accompany the EMAS study tour “Castles of North Wales” will be the first of these brochures to include such content.
