Augumented Reality in AJ Play Wild

Hey Jammers!

Have you heard the news? The ever-growing popular trend of augumented reality (virtual reality) has made it into AJ Play Wild.

If you're not entirely sure what virtual reality is, think of Pokemon Go. You know how you can see the Pokemon on your screen when you're trying to capture it in a Pokeball as if it was in camera mode, so it looks like each Pokemon is actually there, in front of you, in real life? That's basically what augumented reality is. The Wikipedia describes it as follows: ''Augmented reality is a live direct or indirect view of a physical, real-world environment whose elements are "augmented" by computer-generated or extracted real-world sensory input such as sound, video, graphics, haptics or GPS data."

But instead of Pokemon, the Play Wild version lets you record videos and take pictures with your animal avatar. Isn't that neat? :D

Here's a quick video AJHQ made that summarizes what we've just talked about:


Play Wild AR is compatible with these devices and platforms only:

iPhone 6s and 6s Plus
iPhone 7 and 7 Plus
iPhone SE
iPad Pro (9.7, 10.5 or 12.9) – both first-gen and 2nd-gen
iPad (2017)
iPhone 8 and 8 Plus
iPhone X

That's all for today. Thanks for reading, and happy jamming!


  1. Apple, apple, apple..... They do know that not everyone can afford right? :|


    1. Yeah. Hopefully Android, Amazon, and other users will be able to experience AJ AR sometime in the near future.

  2. Hmmm... but do you really get rares from BEPPER? If so, I'm going for that magenta furry hat! :P

    1. *milks cow*

      OOH, LOOKIE! GOLD!!!

      oh wait. it's just iron pyrite

  4. That's so awesome! I've been so interested in AR lately :D

  5. Literally the only thing I was paying attention to were the forced jokes by Bepper and the Club Geoz poster behind Cami. Thanks AJHQ, thanks. :,) (This new AR feature sounds cool though. I might finally check up on PW after like 4 months.) :P
