What is Augmented Reality?
Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology which enhances the user’s reality by superimposing digital information in the form of images, videos and 3D objects. This additional layer of digital information is imposed and displayed through the use of a visual output display, which is often in the form of a smartphone or a similar device. As a result, the user’s immediate environment is augmented and enhanced.

Yes, it can. Glow-in-the-dark images can be perfectly implemented into Wear 4D+ without disrupting the AR content. For your information, please click here for a glow-in-the-dark Wear 4D+ design that we have developed.
How can we improve the existing 4D animation that we have chosen earlier?
The default development timeline to create a standard 4D design is 1 month for 4 designs. This is put in place so that the 3D model, animation, props, and sounds can be properly developed. Please let us know the exact date of the t-shirt launch so we can properly prepare the 4D development.
We have faced errors (not identifying the image, etc.) while we were using the app. Then it was solved by turning off and on the app. Is it normal?

The development time would be around 2 weeks until the animation is done. However, should the animation or the design is complex, there will be an additional cost. Also, the development time would increase to 3 or 4 weeks.
Will there be any additional cost/charge for the changes/corrections?
There will be no additional charge. But we will inform you should there be additional charges prior to development, which means we commence development pending your approval. The use of up to 40 graphics from our library does not incur any type of fee.

How does the app recognize the image?
The app recognizes the images through the edges of each unique outlines. But please avoid repetitive patterns (such as grids) and printing on glossy material as the light reflection affects the AR trigger image.
Does the size of the image matter?
Size does matter, and we do have the smallest advisable dimensions.
Can we design a brand new image and link that image to your existing 4D animation?
Yes, you can. Please send us the images that you have designed prior to starting the production process. We would need to first examine your design and determine whether or not it would make a good marker.
Can we design any background behind the artworks you have on the flashcards and still be able to see the 4D animation using the app?
Yes, you can. Because the app recognizes the images through the edges of each unique outlines and contrast color. Therefore, please make sure there is sufficient contrast between the color of the background and the marker itself.

Can anyone access the library without having the serial number? In terms of accessibility and available features, what are the differences in actually owning the cards and serial numbers?
That is correct, anyone who has downloaded our apps can have access to the library even without having to input the serial number. However, their access is limited to simply reading the objects’ description in the 3D library. To gain full access and features (e.g. on Dinosaur are Holoprism mode, AR/VR mode, Language Selection, etc.) one would require a set of serial number and the corresponding AR cards.
