New App Lets Your Trace Drawings from Your Phone onto Paper. Get ready to draw like Leonardo da Vinci, or, at least, trace like him. A new augmented reality app, SketchAR, is the first mobile app that uses AR to allow users trace an image on real paper. The Lithuania-based company describes their product as "an application through which the user sees a virtual image on the surface of which they are planning to trace a sketch. " The user is given the option of drawing preloaded sketches or choosing a personal photo that will then be converted into an easily traceable image.

To begin drawing, select a sketch and then aim the camera at the piece of paper you wish to draw on. The app will then prompt you to draw three circles — one at the top of the physical paper, one on the left, and one on the bottom. Currently, the app only works on A4 paper, but that will soon set to change. SketchAR is currently available on iOS , and it will soon be available in the Google Play Store and for the HoloLens.
