I made an AR App with App Inventor!
This app contains one extension : PosnetExtension.
I made the app to show the picture on camera in live time an then, put a pikatcu charater image on it by the ImageSprite Extension. You can move the pikatcu charater by dragging it. In addition, the camera starts in 5 - 10 secs after the app has been started. You Also have to grant the camera permission.
[Tested by : Samsung Galaxy Tab A, Samsung Galaxy S23]
AIA : augmented2.aia (1.3 MB)
APK : Open the AIA and make it!
If you have any question, comment. Thank you for reading.
Made a few adjustments
augmented2_revised.aia (1.2 MB)
Set posenet enabled to unticked in the designer, then you use the enabled property to start and stop the camera motion.
Set the canvas to the correct aspect ratio for the camera (4 high by 3 wide) when in portrait, which improves the image displayed
Added some blocks so the imageSprite is positioned (centered) on user touch position when dragged
Removed unnecessary components
Replaced copyright image
This could also be done using the ProCam extension and a canvas overlay, which would allow you to take a picture too !!
Can't see any "AR" about this app, but a clever use of the posenet extension to use the camera as a background.
I think it's a very clever App, well done.
There is an issue though - pikachu is a branded product, you can't use that image without the owner's permission. Create your own character image and replace pikachu.
OK! Thank you for telling
