Augmented Reality Puts You In ‘Take On Me’ Music Video

Trixi Studios has created an augmented reality iOS app that puts the user in A-ha’s iconic ’80s music video “Take On Me.”

Back in 1985, it took months to develop A-ha’s classic video. It took more than 16 weeks to rotoscope the frames to create that signature blend between the real and hand-drawn worlds. This app showcases just how easy it has become to recreate these scenes.

Trixi wrote the software using Apple’s ARKit, a software toolbox that lets iOS developers weave augmented reality content into their apps.

Unfortunately, this app is just a proof-of-concept for now. So you’ll have to wait “a day or two” before you can relive this ’80’s moment.
