Augmented Reality App Exploring Artifacts from Around the World
Civilisations AR, an iOS app from the BBC, gives students an unprecedented look at 30 artifacts from around the globe—for example, the Rosetta Stone from the British Museum; an Egyptian mummy from the Torquay Museum in Devon, England; and Rodin’s The Kiss from the National Museum of Wales. Included are audio tours in which an expert guides students through the origins and backstory of each item. The app also has an X-ray feature that lets students peel back layers of a painting and a sarcophagus to get an inside look at history. A cool factor is the true-dimensional scaling of each object.
