In a previous workshop with A-Frame - the web virtual reality framework - we showed you how to create simple immersive VR experiences for the web. This time, we’ll supplement A-Frame with the AR.js toolkit to create an augmented reality game that works in your browser, with only Javascript and HTML5.

In this workshop, we’ll leverage the ability of AR.js/ARToolkit to identify markers to create a fun treasure hunt game that can run from any mobile or machine web browser. In the game, once hidden objects come into the camera view, an overlay with a 3D animation/dialogue will appear!

We’ll show you how to get started with AR.js and A-Frame from scratch and take you over the basics of coding any app using the framework.

Prerequisites:
- Basic web programming knowledge (HTML/JS)
- Bring your laptop, mobile phone and headphones
