An App For Clicking Selfie With Mangalyaan
HYDERABAD: Hyderabad-based start-up Smartur has developed a mobile application built on augmented reality that allows Android and iOS phone users to click a selfie with Indian spaceship Mangalyaan that is due to enter Martian orbit on September 24.
The Smartur app is an augmented reality app that has been developed using a 3D model and provides the user with an almost ‘real’ experience of seeing the object, in this case Mangalyaan, in their living environment, the release said.
A participant would be required to download the app for free on their mobile device and take a print out of the ‘marker’. The combination of the app and marker would give users an actual feel of being right there with the Mangalyaan, it said.
