Augmented Reality on Android Phone using Wikitude SDK

I thought I would do a write-up and share how to use the Wikitude SDK for Android to allow you to see how awesome Augmented Reality is from your phone.

Here's a little YouTube video showing the outcome of the slides presentation above:

any questions, feel free to ask.


  1. now that Apple have purchased this company, I fully expect AR to become ubiquitous by mid-2016 :

    You'll finally be using it during your normal daily lives, as if you always had it and cannot imagine not using it.... I have plenty of ideas, naturally :-)

  2. When I said, "this compnay", I did NOT mean Wikitude, I meant Metaio. Just thought I'd clear that up!

  3. hello, I tried to install the apk files on several smartphone but didn't work on all of them. I also downloaded the source code and tried to run it but also got an error while tap on both startAR button..could you give me the solution? the url cannot be opened too...

  4. Like you said! i spent weeks looking for something useful at google! and the documentation wasn't very clear at the moment, it was great that someone took the time to do this! I'm working on a project right now, i'll share it here when i'm finished!
    Thank you so much!

  5. Augmented Reality is a term for a live view of the physical environment whose elements are merged with, or augmented by virtual computer-generated imagery - creating a mixed reality.

  6. this is how it should be documented, for each functionality.
