What is it
WallaMe is a free iOS and Android app that allows users to hide and share messages in the real world using augmented reality.
Users can take a picture of a surface around them and write, draw and add stickers and photos on them. Once the message (called Wall) is completed, it will be geolocalized and will remain visible through WallaMe’s AR viewer by everyone passing by. A Wall can also be made private, thus becoming visible only to specific people.
All the Walls created worldwide can be seen in a feed similar to those of social networks like Facebook and Instagram, and can be liked, commented on, and shared outside the app.
WallaMe is mostly used to create digital graffiti and for proximity messaging.
How it works
Wallame allows you to create your own markers based o photos and map AR instances to them.
Content can be in the form of;
- Doodles(drawn using the app)

What will we use
The ability to have a user created content is exciting as users could leave their own messages/ marks on the overall experience.
Other interactions such as the ability to doodle/ place content in space could be very powerful.
One limitation is that the app can only see one AR instance at a time, which is chosen by the user.
