Is This The Future For Street Art?
Augmented reality company Layar—who introduced us to adding digital and interactive content to print media–has officially released a virtual graffiti app that has been inspired by street artists and their works.
Called ‘Stiktu’, the app allows users to take pictures of any surface and add their own text, paint or stickers to create ‘virtual graffiti’ on their smartphones.
After creating their own ‘artworks’, users can share their works with other users or upload them on social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter.
According to Raimo van der Klein, the co-founder of Layer, he said “With Stiktu, we really put the power of augmented reality in the hands of the people.”
He further adds, “Stiktu opens tremendous new possibilities to interact with the physical world around us.”
Stiktu is currently available free for download on iTunes Store and Google Play.
