Travel back in time with an Augmented Reality App
This project also includes the development of an Augmented Reality App that will allow the customer to travel back in time to visit a room of significance for each character.
Using a smartphone or tablet, this AR portal will transport the user into a room that has been meticulously recreated based on archival images. Clickable objects reveal stories about the scientists and their contribution to our history. Science enthusiasts will visit Albert Einstein’s lecture hall, Marie Curie’s laboratory and Nikola Tesla’s experimental station.
“We are thrilled to bring this new line of figurines to life and to introduce a digital aspect to our product with this immersive AR app” said creator David Beaulieu. “We’ve been working on the idea of branching out from art history and into other themes for a while. For us, science was the perfect way to venture into other chapters of our history. This new brand, The Historical Figures will allow us to explore more themes in the future!”
Each PVC figurine stands at 5 inches tall and includes 10 interesting and fun facts about the character on the packaging. This project has been authorized by the respective estates of the famous scientists.
