Augmented reality is a cool technology that displays information in 3D when you hold your smartphone’s camera over an item. And now, we’re excited to have the first augmented reality banking app in New Zealand.
When you hold your Westpac MasterCard or Visa under the camera of your iOS device, the AR banking app shows you your recent transactions and spending trends – in 3D, and in a flash.
The app was developed from a winning idea in Westpac’s Global App Challenge, amongst hundreds of other creative, innovative entries. Watch this video to find out more about the app:
