Have you ever wondered what it would look like if a dragon flew out of your screen, or out of your wall?
Proto is green, has three eyes and likes to scratch himself sometimes. But he’ll go wherever you tell him to go.
We started an internal project to interrogate potential use-cases for user generated AR content, as well as looking for a cool side project.
We asked the question: “How can users be creative with this technology rather than passively viewing content?”
What came out of those explorations was Scrawl, the first world’s first 3D augmented reality drawing app for iPhone.
We have big plans for Scrawl but for the moment, here is a very early preview.
An in-house experiment for customising virtual footwear, triggered by a poster or print advert. One day, we may all be able to buy our sneakers like this, right from our phones.
String™ Augmented Reality.

Ratings and Reviews
This app is awesome. Must admit it took me a while to figure it out as when I had the images up on the computer screen I was sitting too close with the iPod. Once I moved back a bit it worked. I also printed out the images and I am really impressed with the little green monster, you can control him to walk in different directions. I love this and would love more images to play with.
The AR images looked amazing, especially the dragon. Loved the shoe image as well. Didn't need to print off the pictures, just accessed the site from another phone and downloaded it as a PDF file. Admittedly the site doesn't give instructions about finding the images to download, but using common sense and a bit of exploring the site, the images are easy to find.
How to use app
Print off the sheets and load the app whilst pointing the camera at the sheet, it should pop a box up below the message telling you to download the images etc, click the box that says I am ready, if it doesn't work reinstall the app and do the same thing. The printed images must have black boxes around them for it to work.
