Have you ever wondered what the past might have looked like? Who was there, what they did? Well, for Union Station in the US, the guys at VML have created ‘Living History’ a mobile, augmented reality story telling app that takes users on a journey back through time as they take self guided history tours that play out on their phones, as they explore the Union Station their own way.
The app provides in-depth story telling through 360 degree, location and image triggered, Augmented reality experiences, before users can go deeper through written stories, images and artefacts… It’s a neat piece of work and the ghost-like graphics make it work really well. Expect to see more and more historic locations and museums entering this space. Get the app here.
