ZapWorks Game Development

ZapWorks Studio

This is the easiest software for creating virtual, augmented and mixed reality (VR/AR/MR) experiences! The experiences launch with a ZapWorks or QR code. Anyone who downloads the free Zappar App and has the code can view and interact with the experience.

If you want to create your own VR/AR/MR experiences, you can purchase the developer software. Anyone with a little bit of programming experience can use the excellent video tutorials to learn this software. It’s surprising how much success you can have the first time you use it!

This semester, I’m leading a group of college students to design an interactive augmented reality game that can be launched from my soon to be published book for middle grades, “The Kitten and the Robot.”

Disclaimer: most of what I post here will be in draft format. I’ll guide you through some of the tips I’ve learned about authoring a book, leading a virtual internship and authoring an Augmented Reality (AR) book!

The Kitten and the Robot is about an adopted kitten who learns to use a robot and work with a team of animals to make repairs after Hurricane Michael. Check back next week to read the Preface and find out why I decided to write a children’s book.
