Dr Karl Mobile App Instructions

Welcome and behold! The Dr Karl App, where too much science application is barely enough. Dr Karl’s latest book ‘Dr Karl’s Random Road Trip Through Science’ comes with Bonus Augmented Reality!

To access the content please download the free Dr Karl App:

The app is compatible with:

iPhones and iPads running iOS 11 and later, with 64-bit support.

Android devices running Android 8 and later, with camera, gyroscope and accelerometer.

NB: on older and lower-powered devices performance may be reduced.

For iOS, you’ll need to ‘trust’ the application by accessing:
Settings > General > Device Management > AUGMENTED REALITY SERVICES
and tap ‘trust this publisher’.

Click here to see an example of Dr Karl’s app in action, or just follow the instructions below.

To experience Dr Karl in AR, you’ll need the trigger images. These are the front cover and the first page of each chapter, which correspond to pages:
6, 12, 18, 22, 28, 32, 36, 44, 50, 58, 60, 64, 72, 78, 82, 90, 100, 106, 112, 114, 120, 128, 138, 148, 156, 162, 170.

Now you have the triggers, tap the ‘Begin’ button on the homepage of the app to download the latest AR experiences. When the camera view opens, point your device at the trigger page to see even more of Dr Karl pop up!

You’ll also see some hotspots or ‘floating icons’ that indicate there is further sciencey goodness to explore. Simply click on these icons and more shall be revealed.

The Dr Karl App was developed by the awesome team at Auggd.com. Videos were produced with support from the Media Room in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, University of Sydney. The loading image of a Dr Karl shirt is by Luisa Brimble for frankie magazine. Thanks to you all.
