The following links and videos show the ways in which Mimas has engaged with AR in the past few years across various subject areas to develop both location and object based experiences. Juniper Research has estimated that over 200 million users will interact with AR apps by 2018, in contrast to 60 million in 2013. AR will become an integral part of the consumer’s ecosystem, and education has the potential to harness this massive user demographic to move from single app examples to a key future learning platform.
