Dessert Wonderland – Immersive Worlds on Mobile AR

Dessert Wonderland – Immersive Worlds on Mobile AR

Featuring a pastel wonderland of Singaporean desserts, Dessert Wonderland is an augmented reality experience made to be viewed on Instagram via your mobile phone. Using colour pencils, the illustrator Studio Juliat started an ongoing project featuring local desserts during the lockdown. Using Instagram’s Spark AR Studio, the AR technologists duo GOWAAA turned these hand-drawn illustrations into an interactive AR experience. Float in a raspberry ripple ice cream ocean and bask in the sun made up of a pineapple tart. Catch a glimpse of the floating ice cream sandwich and take a screenshot of the ice kachang (shaved ice with syrup) mountains. Click on this link to view this experience on your mobile phone (you need to have an Instagram account to view it). Pan it slowly across the room and interact with it to see what hidden features we have put in!
