A pin board is also known as a bulletin board or  notice board. It is a surface that facilitates the addition and removal of messages and is used for posting important dates, projects, schedules, important announcements and public messages, for example, to advertise items wanted or for sale, announce events, or to provide information. Generally made of materials like cork, rubber or foam, pin boards are widely used in universities, corporate workspaces, local shops, cafes and at many sports and cultural events. The beauty of the pin board is its simplicity and versatility. Augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) are technologies that have seen a lot of progress in the past decade and are continuing to rise in popularity. Their applications are now found in almost all the fields and more devices are built with AR/VR support. Considering the global pandemic situation and the processing capability of current smartphones, we propose a way of contactless display of information virtually using augmented reality on handheld devices (Smartphone and tablets). Virtual pin boards can be used in numerous places, for example in schools, universities, workplaces, homes, fairs, tourist locations and crime scenes, etc., as a means to display information.
