We’re going to take the focus off of the upcoming insideAR for just a moment while we tell you about this very cool project from developers Marius Hügli and Martin Kovacovsky, who worked with the Museum zu Allerheiligen Schaffhausen, Switzerland.
Marius helped to implement augmented reality powered by metaio technology in this permanent museum exhibition focusing on the rise and fall of Celtic culture in Switzerland, in a project commissioned by Basel studio Anex Roth (The book used for the Augmented Reality experience was written by Valentin Homberger). Marius has been kind enough to provide us tons of photos of the exhibition and the experience, as well as the video that the team produced.
“For a permanent archaeological exhibition of the Museum zu Allerheiligen in Schaffhausen (Switzerland) we created an Augmented Reality book about the Celtic culture.
Divided into six chapters the book talks about the rise and fall of the Celts with the focus on Switzerland.
Our goal for this project was to create a highly innovative and playful experience. Both the content and the installation should be memorable and create several “wow” moments. On a magical journey the user learns about Celtic history, art, living and warfare. The AR events reach from informative motion graphics to complex interactions, such as conducting an archeological dig!
This project was commissioned by Basel, CH based studio Anex & Roth which designed the exhibition. We also worked closely with archeologist Valentin Homberger who wrote the copy and created three 3D models. Our work was focused on designing the book, creating most of the multimedia content and imagery, programming all interactions and concepting the installation.”
