Visit the Inter-war Bucharest using the mobile Augmented Reality channel

Newsroom 01/05/2013 | 07:05

Colorbitor has launched the mobile Augmented Reality channel that adds a layer of archival footage on the same spots in the city were they were shot. Visitors in some of the historical Bucharest sites are able to open “time windows” on their internet-connected IOS and Android devices. They will discover real life moments from around 80 years ago integrated seamlessly into the camera view looking upon the present locations.

For this project, Colorbitor team uploaded a gallery of short film documents and embedded them each in its place – marked on the map and printed on the pavement around town.

It’s a world novelty in terms of AR which until very recently limited the augmentable reality to 2D elements. The Metaio technology sets a whole new ground for outdoor visualization fusing GPS and 3-D tracking, enabling us to augment nearly any real-world environment, instantly and in real-time.
