Bigger. Badder. Boa. Explore the world of Titanoboa: Monster Snake. Use the camera to augment Titanoboa and come face-to-face with this enormous serpent as we bring it back to life in all its slithering glory!
Once you figure out how to make the app work it's pretty cool and innovative! I do have to agree though, how it's supposed to work after you download it should have been explained. I figured it out on a fluke ( I was @ the Dr's office & the mag was still on my lap while I tried to figure out how the app works, the camera on my iPod was aimed @ the mag, and it started working. Tried to move mag, and quickly realized how the app works.
Regardless , awesome app!
It does however needs directions. I found that if you google "titanoboa augmented app" you can find a site...and hold up the camera(app) to the marker(pic) of the boa wrapped around the croc, and the app will work...you can copy and paste the marker in a word doc and print it and use it anywhere! Smithsonian, you may want to add a link to where this marker can be found, like other augmented apps does.
Literally the coolest thing.
This app is the coolest thing I've ever seen. A big step-up from what you think Smithsonian is. They are all about learning and this was a super awesome way to do it. If you're not an idiot you can figure out that the only button there is, is used to start the app and you hold it above the page, watch and be amazed. Cool stuff.
