BRING DINOSAURS TO LIFE
With Augmented Reality
***The Ultimate Dinosaurs exhibition at the Royal Ontario Museum is now closed.***
Works best with iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPad 2 and iPad 3. Also compatible with iPhone 3GS. (*Attention iPad 1 Users:* Unfortunately, this app will not work on the iPad 1, because this device does not have a camera, and a camera is required for augmented reality.)
This app lets you experience some unusual new dinosaurs in surprising new ways.
Bring dinos to life in the Royal Ontario Museum’s (ROM’s) time-limited exhibition Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana, presented by investment dealer Raymond James Ltd. Augmented reality (AR) technology allows you to learn more about select dinos, and virtually flesh out a dinosaur skeleton.
Bring this app to the ROM, or use the iPad mobile digital devices provided in the exhibition.
You can also experience AR on select advertising for the exhibition. Look for ROM transit shelter ads around the Greater Toronto Area and other materials that include AR instructions.
The dinos are waiting for you!
To get the most out of the augmented reality experience, try the following:
- Keep the black frame on-screen
- Make sure there's even lighting on the image (avoid shadows or glare)
- For print materials, make sure the marker is flat
Point your iPhone or iPad at the middle image on this page and watch it come alive! Despite what a previous poster said, you don't need to be at the ROM to make this app work.
App was not very useful since you have to always have the black rectangle in view of the camera and at the right angle. The iPads at the museum stations could do a lot more than the app available for the general public.
Got the app after getting a brochure for the new Dino execution and the pages from the actual booklet came to life after pointing the phone at them... Can't wait to get to the ROM to use this baby
