How to Launch the WebAR Experience!

What is AR?

AR stands for augmented reality. It is a technology that adds digital content to our physical world. Typically the augmentation occurs through a device such as a smart phone or tablet. The device camera displays the real world and the digital content is displayed over the camera image, making the imaginary come to life.

Any type of digital content can be displayed - from videos, to interactive 3D models to games. 

The goal of adding AR to the Santa Fe Sam Books Series is to provide additional learning opportunities. By augmenting the printed content with additional educational experiences, learning becomes even more fun, engaging and effective.

Santa Fe Sam Books is pleased to partner with Tripod Digital Ltd. ( to bring you the WebAR experience - no need to download an app! Best of all, we can update the experiences and let you know it's time to read the books again and see what adventures are in store.

How does it work?


 1. Open your camera 



2. Point it at the QR code on the book (or the one below)



3. Click the link to open in your phone's browser (note: if you see a pop-up that says "copy text" click the "X" - the link should appear next)



4. Click "allow" camera



5. Scan illustrations and play the videos/animations that pop up! not all images trigger the AR so you'll have to do a little hunting.
