Paper Cubes is an experiment in DIY AR. With just some paper, scissors, glue, and a phone; anyone can explore how to make the physical world augment the digital one. You can use the paper cubes to control a crowd of stick figures – make them jump, turn, stop, you can even make them smarter with the AI paper cube.

Built by Anna Fusté Lleixà, Judith Amores Fernandez and David Ha with friends at Google Creative Lab using Unity and Vuforia.
