BANGOR – Students at Husson University were showing off augmented reality apps they developed over the course of the semester on Friday.
One of them told us they spent at least 35 hours working on the app.
The app they created is a drawing kit, but they said they hope to develop it into a note app for students.
With augmented reality, you can alter what’s in front of you on screen in real time.
“It’s really important they had a chance to get into the programming and the example they have is really simple, but allows them to understand some of the fundamentals of spacial computing,” said Brave Williams, an assistant professor at Husson University.
“I would like to take this app, keep working with it and developing it, and kind of get it more implemented to our school,” said Serena Laro, a sophomore and IT student.
This class was part of a larger effort to expand the university’s IT program.
They plan to offer more like it in the future.
