The vast majority of mobile technology today has developed over the past dec-ades. The thirst for information and communication has brought about high data transfer speed on modern mobile handset devices. This makes it possible for Augmented Reality to be used on mobile phones.
Vaasa University of Applied Science, Technobothnia science resource center and Lumivaara Museum saw the importance of information and decided to embark on a pilot project where Augmented Reality will not be only use as information shar-ing tool, but also to enhance user experience. The aims of this pilot project are: to improve product knowledge in Technobothnia mechanical engineering laboratory, to create pilot teaching material utilizing augmented reality and finally to improve user experience in Lumivaara Museum through Augmented Reality.
This was achieved by creating and editing of videos and audios as Aurasma over-lays for the Augmented Reality. Since Augmented Reality is still a new technolo-gy, we saw the need to use QR code technology for windows phone users and via these codes they can access the same information which Apple and Android users can access via Aurasma.
