Virtual yearbooks are always a bit more fun than the typical paper-based ones. When you combine both though, you get something truly awe-inspiring. The University of Tampa is using an app that allows users to scan the yearbook pages like barcodes.

If you're a student of the University of Tampa then you have reason to be excited. You don't just get to give in your last, parting words as a student and give a half-hearted smile; you now get to give a short video, a slideshow or add in any other sort of cool bonuses, thanks to Aurasma.

The virtual yearbook will also show special stories from the year when certain pages are scanned, making the whole thing a more visual and interactive experience. Stats for Virtual Reality Yearbooks Trending: This Year & Average
