Glimmer XP is a mobile phone application that allows you to view augmented reality (AR) experiences.

What is Augmented Reality (AR)?

AR is the superimposition of a computer generated image on your view of the real world. Often with surprising and magical effects!

How do I view AR experiences?
Use Glimmer XP to find AR Codes that let you know experiences are nearby. Here is an example of an AR code. Sample AR Code
I don't see any AR codes nearby. What can I do?

Not to worry! We have a number of exciting AR experiences available on our web site. Use a second device to bring up our web site, click on View Our Web Experience, and point your camera at the AR code there to start the fun!

I found an AR code! What's next?

Each AR Code identifies a particular experience using the embedded QR code. Once we detect the QR code, a 3D cube will appear along with the name of the experience. Tap the cube to begin!

Umm, what if I can't seem to identify the experience?

You should cry. Haha, no. We have a solution. Just tap on the “Choose Experience” button and we’ll ask you where you’re at.

Yay, I've identified an experience! Now what?

Now it’s time to explore and be dazzled. Point your camera around to find markers that trigger an AR experience. Some markers are clearly identified, while others you may have to explore to find. The key is to have fun!
