In an effort to raise awareness on the importance of environmental conservation, WWF, Google, Netflix, PHORIA and ArtScience Museum have come together in a joint collaboration to present the first ever social augmented reality (AR) experience in Singapore: Rewild Our Planet.
From now till 2 June 2019, our very own ArtScience Museum will be housing an interactive AR experience that allows you to explore real-world natural landscapes using cutting-edge AR technology, which is developed with footage from Netflix’s brand-new original documentary series, Our Planet. This means you can go on a virtual trek around the planet – from exploring the forests of Borneo, to diving deep into the coastal seas of Southeast Asia – without worrying about your carbon footprint.
Narrated by world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough, this sensorial experience aims to build a multi-sensory connection between mother nature and the human mind through immersive storytelling aided by IMAX-style projections and spatial soundscapes.
Using the Google Pixel 3, you’ll have to work with other visitors to rebuild the environment that has been adversely affected by the actions of mankind – AR style. This enables you to unlock global weather patterns and magical animal encounters, all while being informed of the sustainable solutions that can help to conserve the environment.
The best part? Admission is free, so you have no excuses to not do your part for mother nature.
