The TeePeedU app uses AR technology to help students build real life connections across their campus. College students will soon be able to interact virtually in class and at sports games, with help from a new augmented reality app. TeePeedU is a free college social media app that aims to get students out of the dorm and connect with each other in real life. The name refers to the act of teepeeing, or stringing toilet paper trails around objects. TeePeedU allows students to teepee each other virtually by “dropping digital graffiti all over campus with everyone you want to know and hang out with,” according to the company. Users can leave photos of themselves around campus, which others can see through the app’s AR ecosystem.
