of any sort? Maybe an anniversary to remember? And you miss a nice
fireworks? No more!
Pocket Scientists' Fireworks family of products (Anniversary
Fireworks, Romantic Fireworks, Happy New Year Fireworks) represent
three of the most important „days-to-remember” of
humankind as potential scenes for Fireworks.
Using cutting edge Augmented Reality and the calculating power
of the new devices, the Fireworks family of products deliver the
explosion of the rockets to your mobile phone: you point your
camera to the horizon, and through your mobile device you'll see
the wonderful explosions of the colorful rockets in the sky.
Any of the Fireworks products works in the daylight too, but for
the full effect preferably use them from a hill or mountain side
over a city's lights – then you'll get the breathtaking
effect as with real Fireworks.
Virtual rockets are launched to a real-time calculated 3D space:
if you turn your camera, the explosion stays in it's virtual space,
it doesn't turn with the camera.

watermark to the view and to the photograph taken from the actual
augmented reality view. Paying the fee of USD 0.99 this watermark
