First iPad 2 App “AR Magic Mirror” is Now Available for Free on iTunes!

The first AR application for the iPad 2 is now available for free on iTunes.

Thanks to the new iPad’s front camera, users can try on a selection of wacky virtual hairstyles, glasses and accessories. The back camera can also be used to try these crazy looks on others.

Users are filmed by the camera and 3D objects are added to the video in real time thanks to facial recognition.


At Total Immersion we are convinced that the new generation of tablets, led by the iPad 2, is a fantastic opportunity for developing new uses of Augmented Reality. As Bruno Uzzan, Co-founder and CEO of Total Immersion says, “With the portability, processing power and broad consumer adoption of the iPad 2, a simple face tracking app today could soon become an essential makeover tool with beauty products at retail.  Likewise a traditional game of online chess could become a massive, multiplayer game in the real world playing alongside vivid 3D characters and environments.”

  6. Yeah, how about an Australian release? Why only US?

  7. Seems like I’ve been waiting ages to try out this app on UK shores but it doesn’t look like it’ll ever happen. Shame really, as it looked like a good showcase for what this type of software and hardware can achieve.
    If you do have plans for a more global release, could you please give me a little info?

  8. You can’t be all that committed to this if after all this time you still can’t release it outside of the US

  9. How do you use the rear camera for iPad 2? Can only use at the front camera..?

  10. How long still need to wait for release out of us country?
