Start drawing easily using augmented reality

SketchAR puts virtual images on paper to let you trace drawings from your phone. SketchAR is for those who have always wanted but have never been able to draw. Also, the app is designed for professional artists as a simple and convenient way to trace sketches onto any desired surface (e.g., canvas, wall, etc.).

ArchDaily
The ability to draw well is one of the most coveted skills in architecture. Unfortunately for those without an innate gift for sketching, it's also one of the most difficult to learn-even if it can, contrary to popular opinion, be learned with commitment and practice.
UploadVR
Update: This article originally published on January 6th, 2017 but as of today, April 18th, 2017, SketchAR is officially available for free on the iOS App Store. Download it today and get to drawing! Original: Augmented reality's potential is immense.

You may not know or care about Project Tango, Google's depth-sensing camera system, which can map augmented reality visuals onto the real world. You may not care about the Lenovo Phab 2 Pro smartphone, which is the first consumer smartphone to have Tango baked right in, either.
Gizmodo
Have you ever dreamed about impressing the people around your neighborhood with preachy Banksy-inspired graffiti? SketchAR is an augmented reality drawing app that uses a smartphone and its camera to let you trace images. And when used with a device that supports Google's Project Tango technology, suddenly anyone can become a tagger who doesn't suck.

I like Twitter. Tweeting helps me formulate thoughts in a unique way, and despite the company's many missteps, I think it's a net positive addition to my life. That should make me a good target audience for TweetReality: an augmented reality app, based on Apple's ARKit, that puts your Twitter feed in the real world.
Digital Trends
If the future entails everyone clad in glasses mixing reality and digitizations, what will future social media platforms look like? That's the question iOS developer Oscar Falmer asked when he started development for TweetReality, the first app to put Twitter inside an augmented reality space.
The Next Web
Twitter in augmented reality is exactly as cool as it sounds. TweetReality brings tweets, search, mentions, profiles and all your favorite features and displays them neatly on a virtual screen that overlays your iPhone or iPad display (sorry Android fans). Navigating is a bit different, but fairly straightforward and intuitive.

Art is a hobby and skill dating back to human's earliest days, which has been demonstrated by simple yet captivating cave paints around the world. On the other hand, technology is a field which, in recent years, has come to dominate human attention throughout the world in numerous ways.

I'm not a minimalist by far, but there's a reason the walls in my house are bare. I'm indecisive. It's the same reason I've never been able to get a tattoo. It's a commitment I can't seem to make because I don't know what my tastes and opinions will be five years down the line.

When Google and Apple announced their mobile augmented reality (AR) platforms last summer, they rocked the 3D world. Almost overnight, Google's ARCore and Apple's ARKit shifted the center of gravity for 3D UX design away from headsets like the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, and PlayStation VR toward already ubiquitous mobile devices.

Announcing Torch AR, the Design Platform for Mobile AR The single biggest obstacle to widespread adoption of spatial computing is not device price, form factor, or install base. Rather, it is the lack of great content. More precisely, the obstacle is a lack of content caused by the lack of tools designers need to create and deploy that content.
