Augmented Reality business cards are printed, physical business cards with the addition of an AR activation integrated into the design. Often triggered by a QR code, AR business cards give networkers the opportunity to digitize their existing business cards.
AR business cards can display different forms of media, triggered directly from the business card design. Video, audio and animated 3D elements can all be deployed from AR-powered business cards.
There are two types of AR business card types:
1. App-based AR business cards
2. App-less AR business cards
App-based AR business cards require the use of a 3rd party application, downloaded from the App or Play store to successfully scan and activate the business card AR experience.
App-less AR business cards utilize Web-based Augmented Reality to initiate the AR experience which means that users don’t need to download an app to view the AR business card experience. Instead, typically users will need to either scan a QR code or visit a shortened URL which then automatically launches the native mobile device camera with which they can then view the AR business card experience. If you're looking to make your own, there are no-code creator tools like the QuickXR Augmented Reality creator makes it easy to design your own AR-enabled business cards in minutes.
