How to: create your own Aurasma auras

In a nutshell, Aurasma’s augmented reality images are called auras. You make them with Aurasma Studio, which runs in your web browser. An aura consists of two parts:

  • A trigger image, aka the image viewers will point their device at to trigger the content;
  • and an overlay, or the hidden content that will be triggered. In Aurasma studio, you lay the content over the image to make an aura.

This is an aura based off the cover of This Dark Endeavor, a prequel to Frankenstein. Point your iOS or Android device at the image below:
