WHAT IS AN AR WEBSITE?
An AR website refers to a website that integrates augmented reality technology into its interface or features. This means that the website can overlay digital information, objects, or experiences onto the real world when viewed through a compatible device, like a smartphone, tablet, or AR glasses.
An AR website isn't just a collection of pages and links; it's a portal into a dynamic, interactive universe. For your customers, it's not just surfing the web; it's like reaching in and touching a virtual world.
HOW DOES AN AR WEBSITE WORK?
- User Access: A user accesses the website through a compatible device with a camera.
- AR Activation: The website may prompt users to activate AR features, often requiring access to their device’s camera.
- Interaction: Once the AR feature is activated, users might see digital objects or information overlaid in their real-world environment through their camera view.
- Customisation: The user can often interact with these digital elements, rotating objects, accessing additional information, or even customising the appearance of a product before purchase.
