How to Use Augmented Reality Business Cards

July 23, 2019

Using Augmented Reality in years gone by has been notoriously difficult and quite frankly, clunky. The previous need for downloading 3rd applications from an app store was a clear barrier to entry for any legitimate Augmented Reality business card service. Our team identified this problem early on, and setup upon creating an AR business card service that wasn't victim to these issues. Spoiler: we succeeded.

Editors Update - 31.03.21 - we are very close to launching our brand new AR Business Card creator tool, available for anyone to design their very own Augmented Reality business cards with ease.

After handing one of your AR business cards to a lucky recipient, they will see all your standard contact information that you expect to see from a business card. Name, telephone number, email address etc. On the reverse of the card will display the following Augmented Reality experience activation instructions

"View this business card in Augmented Reality! Scan using your phone camera or go to on your mobile device"

Super simple. Your contact uses their mobile device camera to scan the QR code or manually go to the URL within their phone browser where they can view your custom video and access the links that you've chosen to display!
