Find out more about October's best AR examples, including amazing web AR experiences and information about our upcoming AR Pioneers summit


October has been a standout Month in AR for me, with Disney Kitchen echoing the brand proposition of "playful goodness with healthy living" at its heart, using spatial storytelling to drive engagement and sales success. And with Jurassic World: Dominion teaching people their Rajasaurus from their Ankylosaurus with it's "build your own scene" experience in-store and at home. Not to mention epic interactive murals and detailed digital worlds from our Zapworks partners
