Final Graduation Paper
Developed an Augmented Reality Application

Oriented by Professor Ildeberto Rodello, I studied Virtual and Augmented Reality platforms to develop an AR app as a prototype for my final work. I used Unity, Vuforia and C#. When the app finds its targets (images placed inside the Faculty's building) it displays old pictures in 3D related to its history. Also built a 3D model of the building which is displayed when it finds the right target.
