"Welcome to our Virtual Santa Photo Experience, enabling you to take your annual family Santa photo in your homes this year via Augmented Reality (AR). AR may be new to you, so we’ve provided some Q&A below to help you navigate the experience, should you need it. And don’t forget to share your photo, tag Officeworks and use the hashtag below.



01. I saw Santa, however now he has disappeared. What do I do?
a. Santa will appear static, you will need to hold the Santa and position him on your screen
02. Santa has appeared oversized/undersized. What do I do?
a. With two fingers either reduce his size or increase it until he is in proportion to the rest of your family
03. I keep scanning the room however it keeps saying 'continue scanning'?

a. Santa needs light, you may need to test the tool in different rooms on different surfaces if he doesn’t instantly appear

b. You may also need to try Santa on light surfaces.

c. Once Santa pops up, position him to the side and ask your family to step into frame and take the photo!

04. My photo is taken – now what do I do?
a. Save your photo to your camera roll and follow the north pole prompts to either share on your social channels or print using our print and create services. Don’t forget to tag Officeworks!

Things to note:

It performs best on newer smartphones with more processing power and memory (older phones will experience a slower frame rate.)

Recommend iPhone 8 and up, Samsung S9 and up, or the equivalent.

Make sure you're not running a million apps at the same time.

Make sure you scan the room with your phone thoroughly - fully left to right and up and down so the phone can gauge the size of the room and figure out where to drop santa/what size to make him.
