During the Covid-19 UK summer lockdown, I worked with Universal Everything on a project to try to help bring a little meaning, joy and positivity to our lives. The result was Super You, an AR costume arts experiment that lets you transform your friends (at a safe distance).
Super You is an AR costume arts experiment by Universal Everything.
Aim your camera at your super friend, see them transform and swipe to change costumes.
Using the latest body tracking technology, film your Super You taking a walk in the park, dancing in the kitchen or relaxing on the sofa.
Make a film of your creation and share it directly from your device’s gallery to social media, using the hashtag #SuperYouAR to join in with this collaborative artwork.
The Super You app was developed and animated by Universal Everything as part of their Future Human art series and is available internationally for free with no in-app purchases.
Please play nicely, make sure you are in a safe environment when you play in AR and always remain aware of your surroundings.

These are currently the iPhone XS, iPhone XR, iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, iPhone SE (2020) and iPad Pro (2019, 3rd generation), on iOS 13 and up.
