Paléoskop – AR and Animations

Augmented Reality

Idea / Con­cept / Design (2014)
with Ludic GmbH
for Juras­si­ca

With Paléo­skop, the visi­tor to the Dino­tec dis­co­very site in Por­ren­truy beco­mes a rese­ar­cher hims­elf. Equip­ped with an iPad, they start loo­king for hid­den dino­saur traces or the recon­struc­ted dino­saurs that left them – visi­ble as 3D objects in Aug­men­ted Rea­li­ty (AR). With each “find”, the visi­tor activa­tes an audio-visu­al chap­ter on the dino­saurs and their explo­ra­ti­on in his inter­ac­tive rese­arch sketch­book. Ani­ma­ti­ons of the 3D recon­struc­ted dino­saurs com­ple­te the hypo­the­sis.
