Examples and Case Studies

Bringing Augmented Reality to our Walks:

Imagine transforming two dimensional signage on our regions hiking trails and walks into augmented reality complete with interactive 3D models, video content, sound and more! PEEKAVU is a new technology which has been implemented into the Otago Settlers Museum in New Zealand. This technology is completely mobile and easily accessible to tourists and could provide a completely unique and immersive experience to our visitors.

Destination Animation (an example from Canada):

Stratford in Canada was identified as a 'Cultural Resort Town' but suffered from a rainy climate. To leverage the region's strong cultural identity and make the most of the rainy weather, a consortium of businesses painted hidden quotes from Shakespeare throughout the city on sidewalks and walks, but these only appear when it rains!
