Augmented Reality Playing Cards

Create interactive playing cards with augmented reality


Welcome to the “How to Make Augmented Reality (AR) Playing Cards” course! In this course, we will explore the fascinating intersection of art and technology and learn how to create an immersive and interactive playing card using augmented reality.

Led by Steven Christian, a talented artist and AR developer with years of experience in creating engaging AR experiences, you’ll learn how to use the Unity game engine and Vuforia AR engine to create a fully functional augmented playing card based on one of your favorite anime shows growing up, Yu-Gi-Oh!

The course is designed for intermediate creators who have some prior experience in Unity and want to explore the potential of AR technology in traditional card games. However, even if you’re a beginner, we’ll provide you with all the necessary resources and guidance to create your own augmented reality playing card from scratch.

Throughout the course, we’ll work on a series of projects that will help you master the skills and techniques needed to create an augmented playing card. We’ll start by building a roadmap of augmented features that we want to include in our playing card, exploring different concepts, and developing a plan for how to implement these features in our card.

Next, we’ll dive into the Unity game engine and Vuforia AR engine, where we’ll learn how to create an image target for our playing card, import and rig 3D models of our characters, and add sound and particle effects to our card.

We’ll also explore how to design and build a user interface that allows us to control the augmented features of our playing card, including buttons to summon, withdraw, attack, and defend the card. This user interface will be the key to bringing our augmented playing card to life and providing a truly immersive and interactive experience for the player.

By the end of the course, you’ll have a fully functional and immersive augmented playing card that you can share with your friends and family, showcasing your skills and creativity with art and technology. You’ll also gain a solid foundation in the process of creating augmented reality experiences, which you can apply to other projects in the future.

In addition to the technical skills, you’ll also gain an understanding of the potential of AR technology in traditional card games. You’ll explore some of the innovative uses of AR in card games, such as enhancing the visual and auditory experience, creating interactive elements, and adding digital elements to the game.

Whether you’re a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh! or just love the idea of using AR to bring traditional games to life, this course will provide you with the skills and knowledge you need to take your creativity to the next level with emerging technology.

Who this course is for:

  • This course is meant for intermediate creators that have used the Unity Game engine before, but you don’t need to be an experienced user or expert to follow along.
