Augmented Reality is the technology behind popular video games like Pokémon Go. Learn some of the secrets of Augmented Reality by creating some amazing filters to wow your friends and family on video calls.

Using SnapChat's lens studio, this cutting edge Fire Tech Experience will take you through making a series of fun and exciting filters that will wildly transform your appearance onscreen and can be used with Zoom, Google Meets, Teams and SnapChat. 

We'll show you how to warp a face using the transform features. We'll also show you how to trigger actions on certain facial expressions, hand gestures, segmentation, markers and object detection. Once you've made your own filter, we'll show you how to publish it as well.

FireTech Experiences are a new series of short, high interest, fun and engaging tech demonstrations and talks. These are delivered in webinar style, using Zoom, with the main expert tutor showcasing a new interesting aspect of technology and learning. Apart from Zoom, no other downloads are required.
