Recreating Heritage in Augmented Reality

Join Hiamo on a tour to explore the past and view some of the Wellington waterfront’s remaining and long-gone heritage through augmented reality!

Using a smartphone’s camera and our application you will be able to view 3D recreations of objects, people, and stories tied to the Wellington waterfront. Our technology lets you see and interact with the past in a new way, watching stories unfold before you over the real world.

Come to learn more about this inner-city heritage, hear about Hiamo’s work, and discuss the uses of augmented reality in the heritage space.
