Dinosaurs invading The St. Louis Science Center
On Saturday July 18th, 2015, MindActive was invited to exhibit at the St. Louis Science Center, for the Bright Ideas Expo. MindActive developed an augmented reality app incorporating virtual dinosaurs and a jungle environment to delight visitors and especially kids. Over 350 photos were uploaded to for the participants to view, print or download.
How it works
From the visitors perspective they see a forest background or photo backdrop. When we focus our iPad on the subject, the forest scene “triggers” the dinosaurs to appear and the visitor is now immersed in the world of augmented reality. When the scene is set, the dinosaurs are triggered to appear – we capture the photo. As an additional attraction, we mirror the iPad to a screen and let the audience see the process. Props were provided for our “actors”.
