Times Mobile Ltd has released an image recognition augmented reality application for giving the customers a captivating experience that stays in their mind for long. The application transforms text, image, symbols, patterns or objects into a virtual experience and instantaneous content which can range from gaming, social media, WAP pages, AV clip, mobile commerce etc.
How does it work
You need to look for the picture/news articles containing the Alive Logo. Open the alive app, and hold it up in camera mode to the image/text containing the alive logo. Fill the screen with as much of the image as possible – whether an ad, article, photo, label or logo. Hold still, tap to focus if required and enjoy. You can also use the flash feature (works only on supported devices) of the bulb in the corner of the screen to open the flashlight if you are in a poorly lit area. For blackberry and Symbian you need to go to options and then capture the image rather than just holding the phone over the image.
You can use Alive by following a few simple steps.
Step1 - Open the Alive app.
Step2 - Wait for it to sync with the latest content.
Step3 - Hold it up in camera mode to the image you want to recognize.
Step4 - Fill the screen with as much of the image as possible – whether an ad, article, photo, label or logo.
Step5 -Hold still and enjoy
Use the ‘share’ camera icon to share your experiences with friends via Facebook and Twitter.
