Ready for a Treas-AR Hunt?! We are! Speculative media artist Nathan Shafer and the Anchorage Mini Maker Faire have teamed up to bring you an Augmented Reality (AR) treasure hunt! Participants scan images using the free Layar app downloaded via iTunes or Google Play. Follow instructions given out at the Faire to be entered into a drawing to win fabulous prizes!
