The Magic House, St. Louis Children’s Museum, sought to elevate user experience at Kenya’s Kids, a rotating exhibit. The museum offers hands-on and interactive based learning for children, designed to inspire a love of learning. Nanonation designed an innovative solution to enhance children’s learning experience by utilizing Augmented Reality with 3-Dimensional rendering to bring the animal statues to life.
Using tablets, visitors snap photos of the elephant, giraffe, monkey, and a lioness with her cubs, as if they were on a safari in Kenya’s savanna. After taking the picture, the AR element is triggered to display a 3-Dimensional rendered image of the animal in its habitat. Information about their species and lifecycle will also appear, allowing the user to swipe through various facts.
