Book-It and Augmented Reality

Book-It is thrilled to be exploring the brand-new world of Augmented Reality (AR). AR is a way to view the physical world with an overlay of digital information.

Unlock secret Book-It videos and animations that we’ve hidden on physical objects called “triggers.” This digital content can only be seen through your smart phone or tablet, using the free AR app called Aurasma.

Here’s How in 5 Easy Steps:

Untitled-3_lowres Step One
Download the free Aurasma app.

Aurasma works on iOS and Android smartdevices. You will need an internet connection to operate Aurasma.


Step Two
Open Aurasma. If this is your first time opening the app, scroll through the tutorial screens until you reach the Login page. Select “Skip” if you don’t want to create an account.


Step Three
Aurasma automatically opens in viewfinder mode, so select the grayscale_thumb icon at the bottom to open the menu.

Select the mag_glassicon and search for “Book-It” to find our channel.
Don’t forget the hyphen in our name!


Step Four
Select “Book-It’s Channel” and select “Follow.”

Enter viewfinder mode by selecting the brackets icon.


Step Five
Point your camera at the trigger image, using the white brackets to frame it. Wait for the Aurasma spiral, which means you’ve successfully locked on to the trigger.

Enjoy the hidden content!

What Next?

Now that you’re following our Aurasma channel, you’re ready to unlock all future Book-It triggers.

Anywhere you see the grayscale_thumb icon (on posters, lobby displays, programs, etc.) we’ve got awesome hidden content waiting for you!
