INDE’S GESTURE-CONTROLLED AUGMENTED REALITY SYSTEM LAUNCHES AT COSMOSPHERE
March 23, 2018 — Cosmosphere is a space museum and STEM education center in Hutchinson, Kansas, housing over 13,000 spaceflight artifacts. The museum is now home to INDE's fully interactive large-screen AR system, allowing viewers to gesture control the movement of animated 3D characters.
The AR experience is not only a cutting-edge addition to the museum’s exhibit portfolio, but it also perfectly blends into the main theme thanks to the AR characters – an astronaut and a robot. Besides simply immersing people in an incredibly realistic 3D environment, the system installed at Cosmosphere also features live interaction with the characters on screen. The level of interactivity, alongside enhanced 3D content quality, makes the user experience more realistic than ever.
"The Cosmosphere wanted to incorporate a fun interactive experience for its visitors into a stale environment at the museum entrance. INDE and its BroadcastAR Experience were selected by the Cosmosphere to provide its visitors with a new engaging exhibit. Patrons have really enjoyed interacting with the augmented reality characters and sequences and it's not just the children, it's been a hit with adults too", said Jim Remar, President/COO of Cosmosphere.
INDE's fully interactive large-screen AR system, originally launched at the Tekniska Museet, the Swedish National Museum of Science and Technology in Stockholm in March 2017
