I represent an event photography agency in Singapore. I have a client interested in doing an Augmented Reality App. Below are my requirements. Basically, the app is a photo/video taking app. Guests will stand in front of a backdrop. For instance, the backdrop may be that of a dragon and a castle.
In photo mode: My app will capture photo as it is. Just like the normal phone camera. Nothing special.
In video mode: When the camera from my app is pointed to the guest (who is infront of the backdrop), AR will kick in. When the camera on the app is point towards it, on the app, guests can see the dragon moving and breathing out fire. Then, on the app, we can activate the video camera to capture the short digital footage. For example, guests 'screaming' at the digital dragon breathing out fire at him.
After a video or photo is taken, it can be instantly previewed. Then on submit, it will be sent to our computer for post processing. We are running a windows computer. How to send the media file from the app to the computer, i was thinking of using Dropbox (via its API). But I am open to any other suggestions as well. As long as the media file (which can be a large file) captured by the app can be sent quickly over to the computer.
- Button to turn AR mode on or off
- Photo taking button
- Video taking button
- Option to set video recording duration (3 to 20 seconds)
- Button to change camera to front camera
- Sending of media file captured to nearby windows computer
- Preferably, I hope this app can be cross platform on Android and iOS built using React Native. But if it is not possible, then we will start with iOS.
- For a start, we will have just 2 to 3 backdrop. Each backdrop to have just 1 kind of AR effect. But moving forward, I will be adding more. So i need an elegant solutions on how to add more backdrops and more AR effects.
I actually found a similar app doing almost the exact same thing I wanted. For those who require some information about this app, please contact me. I will send the relevant information over.
I am looking at an experience developer who can get this done. I am not in a rush, but I want the app to be done properly. Looking also at a long term relationship as I have plans to add in other features (as below)
Phase 2 developement
- Adding of selfie camera AR (just like those snapchat, Instagram stories selfie filter whereby a cat ears will be attached on a human head)
- Adding of multiple AR effect on one single backdrop
- Social media integration (sharing captured media instantly on Facebook)
- Option to embed captured media on a custom design overlay
- Option to include user's text input
