    I was thinking that that is another functionality that was very little used in this device.

    I only know the following

    1) AR Games (preinstall)
    2) Spirit Camera
    3) Kid Icarus
    4) Kingdom of Hearts 3DS
    5) Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Gates of Infinity

    Off the top of my head at the least Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, Bravely Default, Bravely Second, and the Nintendogs+cats use it.

    There really weren't that many which is a shame seeing as it was a fairly cool gimmick, even if it was just that; a gimmick.

    Although not a game, there's also Pokédex 3D Pro, which is a pretty cool app imo.

    Man 3D Pro was so good.

    It was actually useful as a Pokédex, the quizzes were neat, and the models were by far the best of the series.

    It's honestly sad that a side app has better models and animations than the main series games.

    I remember somewhere official (the manual maybe?) that stated that if you made a QR grid that was 1x1 meters, you could summon life-sized AR Pokemon. I tried to find a way to do that for the longest time (the plan was to have movable squares so I could assemble any grid I wanted) but never could find a cheap source of giant flat material.

    I printed a QR Code for a Manaphy on an A2 paper once.

    It was pretty difficult getting the 3DS camera to really detect it, especially due to the size.

    You could set Contest backgrounds to use the system camera instead of the default.

    A side app is to the main app what a side dish is to the main dish.

    Just remembered, Tomodachi Life used it for at least one thing: In one of the dream sequences, a Mii will open their window blinds, and what's behind it is whatever's in the face camera (so, you, probably.)

    No idea. But I am hungry too, so I will go to the kitchen to check it out.
