Augmented Reality (AR) Development Manchester

Augmented Reality is the merging of digital content with the physical world.

In simple terms, this can be an overlay of information on top of a video or picture. Thanks to powerful mobile devices though, AR is better known today for its immersive and contextual placement in between the physical and digital world.

2015 saw the town of Berwick Upon Tweed celebrate its 900th year. The town has a long history of rope making, so a project was put together to help celebrate its 9th centenary; 'The Great Performing Rope'. Gather was asked to develop an app that incorporated the memories of the local townsfolk. We delivered these memories in a modern and engaging way by providing content in the form of text, images, audio and video inside an Augmented Reality app for iOS and Android devices.

A selection of memories were brought to life in the mobile app, offering users a chance to watch a video or hear audio direct from the people of Berwick. Archive footage from Berwick Record Office was included alongside newly recorded personal accounts and attached to geo-location points around the town that relate to each memory. All users needed to do was to point their mobile in the direction of a memory, and the AR content would be brought to life.
