About the Item
"Super You" is an AR costume arts experiment by Universal Everything.
Aim your camera at your super friend, see them transform and swipe to change costumes.
There are 11 super costumes to choose from, which also sample the colours of the clothes you are wearing.
Using the latest body tracking technology, film your Super You taking a walk in the park, dancing in the kitchen or relaxing on the sofa.
Make a film of your creation and share it directly from your device’s gallery to social media, using the hashtag #SuperYouAR to join in with this collaborative artwork.
Some general tips for making your Super You film:
- Move gracefully rather than frenetically
- Find good lighting
- Wear colourful clothing
- Try filming different activities in different locations
- It works indoors and outdoors!
The Super You app was developed and animated by Universal Everything as part of their Future Human art series and is available internationally for free with no in-app purchases.
Please play nicely, make sure you are in a safe environment when you play in AR and always remain aware of your surroundings.
