NormanAR is an open-source mobile app that displays animations in augmented reality. Created as a complement to NormanVR, a tool that allows artists to animate frame-by-frame in 3D space, normanAR takes these animations and adds them to the real world.

Just cycle through a variety of animations and tap a spot in the world to anchor that animation in space. Walk around to see it from different angles.

Built by Jonas Jongejan and Irene Alvarado as part of a larger collaborative experiment between James Paterson and Google Creative Lab. NormanAR uses ARCore and openFrameworks.
