Computer scientists help push the limit of what animations are and what they can do.

(bubble popping)

Artists mixed animation with augmented reality.

To watch this film, the users move their mobile device.

(mellow music)

In doing so, the users could interact with the film.

Mobile devices combined with headsets like Google Cardboard can also create virtual realities where users can explore full virtual worlds.

That's pretty cool.

Augmented and virtual reality is made possible with computer science.

Computer scientists program the mobile device to act like a window into the virtual world.

When the user moves the device to the left, it broadcasts a message that tells the film to also move to the left.

When the user looks right, the film also goes to the right.

This technology and the coding behind it, opens up new ways to interact with media.

You can access your project outside of this club.

Just go to scratch.mit.edu and sign in.
