Augmented Reality Basketball App for Math

A few weeks ago, while in Austin, I attended @EdcampATX! The Austin sponsors did a great job of hosting the event.
@CoburnCori (Cori Coburn-Shiflett) facilitated the session on Augmented Reality. We talked Aurasma and ColAR Mix.  Love both of those, but I had never seen . . .
ARBasketball - Augmented Reality Basketball Game by Augmented Pixels Co Ltd
This is the perfect app for your sporty kids!

To start shootin' some augmented hoops you will need to download the image below.
It is the trigger that allows you to virtually shoot hoops! (Click on the image below for the trigger or access the one like this in the link at the end of the post.)

It is best to play the single version. The multiplayer version wants you to connect online. 

There are various game modes. 
Here it is in action! Notice how the basketball hoop appears over the trigger. Use the bar on the right to pull down, release and shoot. Also, notice in the bottom left corner, this allows you to move to different parts of the court by moving the angle of iPad.

The 2 minute game!

The 5 minute game!
So many great ideas for this app!  
I created a few math activities to use with the AR basketball.

Have a great Saturday!

  2. Thank you for your post, AR basketball is really cool. I am really like interactive games and applications. I think it is a good teaching method for children. All children love to play. And Augmented Reality can help with learning. You can read more read here.

  3. Thank you, sports applications with the technology of augmented reality is very cool. Children love these applications. And parents are happy, because the care of children rises to a level and the learning process is quite easy. I want to share a list of useful AR applications that will help in the learning with your children -
