Augmented Reality

moonmoons AR uses augmented reality, as such it works best in well lit environments.

Having a clean camera lens makes a surprsingy improvement to your device's ability to track the world, we highly recommend giving it a quick wipe with a dry cloth!

Flat surfaces, both horizontal and vertical, can be detected for use in AR. However, not all surfaces are detected equally: surfaces with visible patterns or borders tend to be picked up easily, while single color surfaces without much variation are difficult to detect. Reflective surfaces are even more problematic! Fortunatley, detecting surfaces isn't critical to moonmoons AR.

Your experience of the piece of music will depend on how you arrange the instruments. If they are close to each other, you will be able to hear all of them at once.

Conversely, if you spread them out, you will be able to walk between them, with those closest to you being the loudest. This lets you listen to the fine details of each part, and explore the different layers that make up the piece as a whole.
