OJOO Mobile Games play with augmented reality


When I found OJOO the first time I have been very excited. It is basically what the World Wide Web offers of most similar to my wishes of a mobile augmented reality tool usable by everyone, and every teacher. It is not capable of the same raffinate game logic of FreshAir but it boasts wonderful gamification options, beautiful AR mini-games, challenges, 360×180 degrees equirectangular images (aka Photospheres) support, map personalisation, Bluetooth beacon support, interface themes and, very important, it supports both Android and iOS. OJOO is modular, so you can just add pages, enable in the page the modules you wish to use and your AR app shapes up under your eyes. I wished to use it in the garden where I’m working for my research now, Hestercombe Gardens, in Somerset (UK), for educational visits. Sadly, it lacks a couple of features which in this context are show-stoppers… but I really look forward to using it on the field.

I tried OJOO while building a visit to Roman remains in Verona.
