Hello!

I'm happy to present a mix of Augmented reality and VtES
Demo includes a single jyhad card and shows the latest card design and text on camera aiming.
To try this you need to proceed the following steps:
1. Download the Bizzar app:
iOS - itunes.apple.com/by/app/bizzar/id1294251453?mt=8
Android - play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.atomichronica.bizzar
2. Go through registration
3. Start the app and aim with the camera on image in attachments that you may find below. You may also try with the real card.




Did you like it?
Would it be useful to actualize other cards this way?
What other ideas can you propose?
Please, feel free to leave the comments here!

I tried (with a real copy) and it works well, even with a sleeve and in relative poor lighting. Impressive.
A bit shaky sometimes, but very crisp.
Will show a card when only 50% visible, which makes me wonder how much Z-fighting would occur with multiple cards.

Now, what to use this for?
Maybe settle a dispute about rulings or errata without trawling google?
If the app fetched all rulings and errata related to the card, I might just use it.
Actually visualizing a newer copy isn’t very useful unless the card text has changed functionally since the printing in your hand.

PS: Why does this require me to sign in? What data is it collecting?

edit:
I can see it wanting to upload photos to social media, but why does it need to sign me in via that account?
Share buttons work just fine (or just save to album), so why isn’t that an alternative instead?
Having to sign into a social media account is somewhat off-putting for me.

The app is also very good at draining my phone’s batteries (like most AR apps are).

Thanks, Snodig, for deep testing.
Don't think we can change the way of login/registration because the app was created not only for vtes purposes :)

Adding ruling to each card will be more complicated. I assume we won't do this in near future, unfortunately, at least in "money free" format

Any other opinions?

What it does now is... fine? I guess?
Don't think I'll ever open this app rather than open Amaranth though.
