Travelocity launches first augmented reality experience within its mobile app


The AR feature gamifies an experience everyone can relate to: taking vacation photos.

Users of the Travelocity mobile app simply point their camera phone toward the floor or flat surface and tap once to place The Roaming Gnome in a picture or video. Optional weather filters, 3D props, sound effects, geotags and photo frames add an element of fun as travelers create and share memorable vacation photos and videos.

The AR experience operates with or without a Wi-Fi connection or cellular data access. Users of the app can save and share Roaming Gnome photos and videos to their phone or favorite social applications.
