New '1600' app gives augmented reality tour of White House

The White House is stepping into the next dimension.

For real.

A new free app known as “1600” takes its users on a virtual experience of the White House.

All you have to do is download the app and point your camera at a $1 bill.

Suddenly, the augmented reality kicks in and the $1 bill comes to life.

“From hosting festivals on the South Lawn to allowing people to explore its rooms via Google Street View, President Obama has used traditional events and new technology to open up the doors of the White House to more Americans than ever before,” the White House blog declares.

The White House says 1600 is a way to reach young Americans who are using apps like Pokemon Go.
