Create Christmas Magic With Interactive Augmented Reality App, Santa Was Here

Artificial intelligence (AI) and augmented reality (AR) developer, Immersion VR, in partnership with AI and AR publisher, Charactr, today unveiled brand new, interactive AR mobile app, Santa Was Here, bringing the magic of Christmas home this holiday season. Available now in the U.S. and Europe for iOS, use your iPhone or iPad to record and save exceptional, multi-scenario videos of Santa Claus around the house with the ability to add personalized holiday greetings before sending and/or sharing videos to social media directly from the app. Whether Santa is caught landing his sleigh and reindeer in the backyard, seen dropping presents off under the Christmas tree, or witnessed magically disappearing into the night, Santa Was Here allows users to tap into their creativity and record videos right alongside St. Nick.

Here’s How It Works:

  • Download Santa Was Here from the App Store on your iOS device
  • Find the perfect spot in your home for the Santa model and chosen scenario. Using “Night Mode Filter,” you can record the desired scenario in the day time or with the lights on, then run the recording through the app’s filter to transform the video to appear as though it happened at night
  • When prompted, grant the app access to your phone’s camera and microphone
  • Choose the right angle and start recording
  • Edit and save your videos in the app’s gallery
  • Add a season’s greeting or holiday message before sending and/or posting to social media channels direct from the app
