Throw a Virtual Pie Using Your Smartphone on Pi Day!
by Rob Rothfarb • March 14, 2012
Ever wanted to throw a pie but didn’t have the nerve? Now you can, using this fun augmented reality experience on your iPhone or Android smartphone. Celebrate Pi, one of our favorite irrational numbers, on Pi Day or any day.
Here’s how: Install the free Layar Reality Browser from the Apple AppStore or Android Market. Search for the Pi Day layer or browse to layar.it/wQpDhM. Search for pies in the Layar app’s camera view. Line up the view of a pie with a friend. Hint: pie should be around your friend’s midsection area. Then touch the pie on the screen.
Snap a picture on your phone of your “pied” friend using the screenshot feature on the layer actions menu. Share your images with us on our FaceBook.com/exploratorium page or tweet it to @exploratorium.
