End those frustrating calls where your parents ask how tech worksUsing your phone's camera, Vuforia's Project Chalk video calls let you make annotations on the screen so you can show someone how to set up and use gadgets.
Project Chalk is an app that helps you help others. You can look through the camera they they're looking at and then simply annotate your screen so that you can create annotations that someone else sees right there in their environment. [MUSIC] Hey JJ. I have a early morning meeting. I'm trying to get this coffee machine working. Just can't figure out what I need to do. Got it. All right. You're going to need to set the automatic timer here. That's actually up at the top of the coffee pot, right there. Push that first. Okay, got it. Okay, then just go ahead and hit that power button right there until you get to the time you want the coffee set at. Okay, 6 AM There you go. Looks good. Just go ahead and push classic brew, you should be good to go. Is that all? That's all. [MUSIC] Hey, JJ. I got a new sprinkler system and I'm trying to connect these wires. These are so complicated. I do se one loose wire up here. Getting close on that yellow one and then plug that into this terminal right here. Okay. Give me a second. [BLANK_AUDIO] So now ACs putting down the device to actually work on it and I'm waiting for him to come back And complete the step. So AC and he's looking at the step he just performed. I can jump over to a view I saved perviously. And now that AC has completed that step. His live view up in the corner. I can actually direct him to another part of the sprinkler system. So I'm going to highlight that and send AC to the other side of the sprinkler system to install. You see that way point that pops up? That's actually guiding AC over to the other end to plug that in. So AC, go ahead and plug that into the port there, that ribbon. [BLANK_AUDIO] So he's plugged in. He worked on a repair when he wasn't even looking at it previously. So by delivering that capability of being able to draw on somebody's world, we've enabled people to have interactions that they couldn't have otherwise had unless they were in the same physical space.
