FreshAiR GPS based games and story-telling


FreshAiR is an amazing tool.  My colleague Paola and I used it to develop GPS based AR experience for children, to let them explore a 19th century “romantic” garden in Italy. It boasts pretty unique features like AR graphical visualisation of POIs, the compass, overlay visualisation of pictures with a transparency slider, complex events logic and items inventory. One has not to forget that it supports both Android and iOS, which is very important in a BYOD view. It has been used widely from one of its creators Dr Matt Dunleavy, you would find very interesting articles here.
