You can tell which artworks have augmented reality features by a sticker pasted beside them.
The Trick Eye Museum AR app has two modes – photo and video.
In photo mode, press a button on the screen to take a snap that goes straight to your phone’s photo gallery.
When you switch to video mode, you can record a video of your friends and family posing with the animated installations.
To add to the experience, background music in the app helps set the mood.
