BARPE=Bubiko's Augmented Reality Photograph Exhibition

Bubiko says thanks for stopping by!

You are very welcome to share the IPOH Photograph Exhibition by Bubiko Foodtour. It is a free download on Google Play and the APP Store.

To start the exhibition, you need a marker, or target, for your phone or tablet. Here is how to make one:

1. Get a white piece of paper the size of a dollar bill.

2. Use a crayon or marker to write IPOH in the middle. USE CAPITAL LETTERS.

3. Put the paper anywhere where there is good light.

4. Point your phone or tablet at IPOH.

5. Relax and enjoy the 30 minute ambient exhibition. Each image lasts about one minute.

6. You could also create IPOH with your computer, using A4 paper and the Arial font, bold at 60 points. Other fonts and sizes may also work, but you'll have to test.

Send us your photos of BARPE and we will be happy to share them!

AR DEVELOPERS: share the POSITIVE CHAOS?

AR is new, revolutionary, unpredictable, and in the painfully ecstatic throes of being born.

With that in mind, I find myself hoping to explore the following situation: Is there a Google Play and Apple App store approved individual or company that can uploading something of mine onto their store?

The "something" is a photo exhibition of Ipoh, Malaysia(PEIM). Kinda arty; nothing naughty, religious or political.. I can immediately send you an ebook of the images. I am hoping the PEIM can be ready for download by Sunday, or as soon as possible after that.

Why this situation?

Well.. I was recently interviewed by the Malay Mail, a large newspaper in Malaysia. I have been told that the interview is tentatively scheduled to be published on Saturday, October 14. In the middle of the night I realized this article is an opportunity to promote PEIM, which I had been working on. Suddenly everything is speeded up.BUT,the PEIM will only be ready on Friday or Saturday!

(Not to mention the 60 hour Facebook Live Symphony Suites marathon broadcast I am starting on Sunday the 15th.)

PEIM would be a free download. I am coming off of a ten year period of only writing books, so I can't really afford to compensate you with $. However I will do all I can to promote PEIM on your sites, so there is a strong possibility your apps will also get some eyeballs.A huge plus for both of us if your app is related to Asia, travel, food, art, filmmaking or photography. And, of course I would be extremely thankful and hope there is way to return the favor/pay it forward someday.

There may be a downside, but at the moment, it seems win-win. Perhaps in the future, when I have time and more apps I will have my own presence on GPlay and the App Store. If the powers that be don't mind, I could just put the same project up on my store, unless that sets off a piracy alarm. Anyway, we can cross that bridge when we come to it. For now I just want to get PEIM on line by Sunday.

Thanks in advance for your comments and ideas.
