What is it?
With fixed statues around my local town, I sought out to find a way to provide the history behind them in a new medium. Utilising augmented reality we detected a bollard, super imposed a mouth, and made it tell its story, right from a user’s phone.
Why we built it
Understanding and knowing history is important. We thought if we could provide new ways of experiencing that history, it might help retain the knowledge for future generations.
What are the possible applications?
In this case we utilised augmented reality on local bollards, however there’s no reason to limit it there. Similar applications could be utilised in any situation where there is a face, and information to portray. Many possible applications include museums, parks, statues and many others.
What is its status?
This project was built as a proof of concept, and wasn’t developed further.
