Easy to build, often free, AR-building apps are powerful extensions for traditional content. See how AR is already being built -and see what's coming. Then build some AR together. Make it and take it! Free or low-cost Virtual Reality (VR)-building tools, inexpensive cameras, and simple applications make building virtual worlds possible. Then enter them with cardboard or Go! Walk virtually through real schools, monuments, or imaginary landscapes. Convert student crayon drawings into VR. Learn drag and drop applications than can build VR from the DE asset library. Explore building original VR landscapes then filling them with 3D models-- original or from a library. Build your own adventures in VR, too, with free tour creators. How to do it then view it.
