The ReplayAR app lets users add old photos to contemporary scenes.

Creators of an augmented reality app invite users to time travel through vintage Los Angeles. The developers of ReplayAR released an augmented reality video tour of LA's historical landmarks and local hotspots made using technology that virtually anchors historical photographs from the city's past in the Los Angeles of today.

"We want to build a community of AR time travelers who will explore, create, and connect with one and other using the app, like an AR social network," says ReplayAR co-founder Brandon Martin.

The company's app lets smartphone users turn their digital photographs into augmented reality experiences and videos that can be shared on social media.

Single-user versions of the ReplayAR app are available in iOS and Android versions.
