Augmented Reality (A.R.) is becoming a huge and major player in the technology arena, with corps such as Facebook and Google even dedicating AR teams for possible future projects and releases. Aryzon 3D AR launched their Kickstarter campaign 21 days ago and has already reached over triple of what they had hoped to in regards to their $29,000 goal. They are a team of five Dutch gentlemen based in the Netherlands, with Maarten Slaa being the original founder. One of the most intriguing aspects of this AR device is the fact that it is largely made from cardboard, which keeps it affordable and lightweight. Of coarse, inside where the magic happens, there are lenses and mirrors, and, well, your phone, which will all work together to create the AR effect that they showcase on their campaign site. This appears to be a real legitimate game changer in the AR field. Watching the demo videos details the amazing potential that Aryzon has to offer. They advertise this technology can be used for all sorts of functions from just plain fun, to education, gaming, entertainment, and even e-shopping. One big selling point of Aryzon is the affordability, which again, is assisted by the fact that its framework is made from cardboard. You can purchase one kit for $32. You can also expect to have to assemble it yourself after arriving in your mailbox. It arrives in a nicely slim fashioned box that is only 32cm by 18 cm. It is then up to you to open it up, follow all instructions and get started with the AR technology with the assistance from your smartphone. Aryzon showcases on their campaign site that assembly is fairly easy and should be doable for anyone without any issues.
The company is said to begin official production in July 2017 and begin actual shipping to backers in September.
