We are trying a fun, new kind of Treasure Hunt. Through a technology called Augmented Reality, or "AR," we create clues that come to life with animation. To see the technology in action requires the installation of an app called Aurasma, which is available in the iTunes store, for Apple devices:
Or from the Google Play store, for Android devices:
Aurasma allows you to point your mobile device camera at a "clue" poster to bring the clue to life. Augmented Reality layers animation over the poster and displays the animation in the device. It's a lot of fun.
If you do not have a mobile device available to try the Treasure Hunt with Augmented Reality, you can see the animations on this website, by clicking the clues below. Good luck!
For more information on the Aurasma app, visit their website at http://www.aurasma.com
Load speed depends on internet connection speed.
