Handheld City is an online streaming experience developed by the AR Lab for the city of Toronto’s virtual museum project, which launched March 6 (Toronto’s 176th birthday). Using AR as a storytelling device, the researchers organized and animated the digital objects in the museum collection and created an interesting way to interact with the objects and access the accompanying text.
You can download the code and make your own handheld city!
The Augmented Reality Lab is supported by: Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Canada Research Chair Program, York Research, Ontario Innovation Trust, and the Canada Foundation for Innovation.
