Augmented reality (AR) is a growing trend among companies involved in mobile computing and business applications in particular. Augmented reality is an interactive experience of a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced by computer-generated perceptual information, sometimes across multiple sensory modalities, including visual, auditory, haptic, somatosensory and olfactory.
Here’s a list of the top 6 most promising augmented reality android apps in India in 2021.
1. AR Ruler App – Tape Measure & Camera To Plan
AR Ruler app uses augmented reality technology (Augmented Reality) to tape measure the real world with your smartphone’s camera. Target aim on the detected plane and start to use ar tape measure tool.
1) Augmented Reality Ruler app – allows to tape measure linear sizes in cm, m, mm, inches, feet, yard.
2) Distance meter – allows to tape measure distance from device camera to a fixed point on the detected 3D plane.
3) Angle – allows to tape measure corners on 3D planes.
4) Area and Perimeter – allows to tape measure perimeter and area of the room.
5) Volume – allows to tape measure size of 3D objects.
6) Path – allows to calculate the length of the path.
7) Height – allows to tape measure height relative to the recognized surface.
8) Plan – generates plan projection for drawn objects and exports it to PDF format.
9) On-screen Ruler app – measure small objects directly on the smartphone’s screen.

3. Civilisations AR
Putting history in your hand – the BBC’s first ever augmented reality app Civilisations AR brings art and culture direct to you from across the world. Discover the secrets of ancient Egypt, reveal hidden layers beneath Renaissance masterpieces and learn more about the origins of these cultural treasures and the people who made them.
Treasures to be found include an ancient Egyptian mummy from the Torquay Museum, Rodin’s The Kiss from the National Museum of Wales, iconic sculptures from Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth and masterpieces by Tintoretto, Bellini and Turner. This personal, virtual collection contains over 30 historic artefacts. It is curated by the BBC with contributions from across the UK’s heritage sector and is developed in collaboration with Nexus Studios (https://nexusstudios.com)
This free Augmented Reality App forms part of a major collaboration between the BBC, Nexus Studios and more than 30 museums from across the UK to mark the launch of the new landmark arts and culture series, Civilisations.
Please treat these cultural treasures with respect when enjoying and sharing this AR experience.
Bring realistic, to-scale artefacts from History into your own home using cutting edge augmented reality technology.
Move, scale and rotate the collection, allowing you to become the explorer.
Use the magic Spotlight to reveal audio guides and special features.
Use the X-Ray feature to discover history’s secrets hidden within – see inside a sarcophagus or what lies beneath a painting.
Rub through the layers of history with Restore, bringing lustre to a Greek Corinthian helmet or colour to a faded Roman Cockerel statuette and find out what they looked like when new.
Translate hieroglyphics from the British Museum’s iconic Rosetta Stone.
Navigate the collection geographically in Augmented Reality.
Take and share photos of the objects in your home, garden or school.
4. Star Chart AR
Star Chart AR lets you explore the Earth in augmented reality through the window of your phone’s screen. All in real time!
Included in Star Chart AR are:
– AR Earth – the Earth beautifully rendered in realtime for Augmented Reality viewing
– AR Orrery – the solar system including the sun, planets, major moons, dwarf planets, asteroid & kuiper belts, and major asteroids (available as an in-app upgrade)
Star Chart AR is best experienced with ample room and good lighting. We like to view it outdoors when scaled to maximum size or on a large clear table when scaled down. Move your device in a circular motion while looking at the surface you would like the device to detect. An overlay will appear on the detected surface and fade out after a few seconds. Tap to place the AR object on a detected surface.
5. Human Anatomy Atlas 2021: Complete 3D Human Body
Human Anatomy Atlas offers thousands of models to help understand and communicate how the human body looks and works–and includes textbook-level definitions. Use it as a reference, instead of an anatomy textbook, or to create virtual lab experiences.
Includes over 10,000 anatomical models with descriptions in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Simplified Chinese. Human Anatomy Atlas offers the most complete human anatomy atlas available, as well as a fast to learn and easy to use ad-free experience.
The base purchase includes complete male and female gross anatomy models that can be dissected, common muscles actions, select microanatomy models and sample animations. Additional in-app purchases can extend the atlas to include more detailed 3D dental models, and animations that explain physiology and common pathologies.
6. Scriptum AR Escape Room
Sharpen your senses to escape from the 4 Scriptum rooms. You must find all the objects, clues, riddles and follow the game mechanics to solve the mystery and find the way out. Remember that you only have 30 minutes to escape so you must be quick to find everything you need.
Scriptum is developed in augmented reality, detects the ground plane thanks to Apple ARKit capabilities (the device has to be compatible) and the camera of your mobile device. Remember that you must grant permissions to use the Camera in the application.
They recommend playing Scriptum in a diaphanous place of 3×3 meters to avoid space problems, but with the new button to walk is not essential. Be carefully with the real objects around the game since you can get confused and bump into them. You can enjoy Scriptum both indoors and outdoors, but always in a safe place.
