Throughout the summer, a new Augmented Reality experience created by GuidiGO will be available on iPads at the Fort Worth Museum of Science and History, Texas. The experience presents a virtual model of NASA’s Curiosity Rover in action within a real-life reproduction of a Martian landscape.
GuidiGO AR Composer has been redesigned from the ground up and is now available for iOS. It is specially designed to make it easy for museums and heritage sites to create life-size Augmented Reality experiences anchored in a physical space.
The GuidiGO team has worked on more than 30 augmented reality (AR) experiences for museums over the last 2 years using Google’s AR platform – Tango and now ARCore. One of the main obstacles we’ve had to work around is occlusion…
For the new exhibition “Still & Art”, the Clyfford Still Museum in Denver combines the display of Still’s artworks with digital reproductions of other artists’ works using augmented reality. Using an app designed by GuidiGO, through a partnership with Google and RYOT, the Museum offers the opportunity for visitors to compare and contrast Still’s works with virtual paintings from museums across the world, as if they were also hanging on the gallery walls.
On January 25, the Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) has premiered a mobile tour called Lumin that uses Google’s Tango technology to provide visitors with new, in-depth ways to engage with the DIA’s renowned collection.
The DIA is the first art museum in the world to integrate this 3D wayfinding and smartphone augmented reality (AR) technology into a public mobile tour, leveraging GuidiGO’s new augmented reality platform, AR Composer.
We are excited to announce the release of our new Augmented Reality product AR Composer which runs on the Google Tango platform. We have already had the opportunity to showcase this technology at several museums.
GuidiGO AR Composer opens up incredible new opportunities for museums and cultural sites, as they can now design their own AR experiences in just a few simple steps, and make them available on site or for remote use by schools and other educational institutions.
We are excited to announce a new feature for interacting with and exploring cultural sites using Sketchfab 3D reproductions of works.
For the arrival of summer, the web version of the GuidiGO app is getting a complete makeover! Tours are now even more accessible thanks to a new responsive interface that is easier to use. The updated Web App includes two new exciting possibilities for users: an instant mobile experience on the go and Street View Tours for remote use…
