Apple Box Exploratorium AR Tour

in collaboration with Kelowna Museum Society
On public display spring and summer of 2021

The Apple Box Exploratorium AR Tour:
An augmented reality (AR) game and interactive historical guide developed by Chloe Chang in collaboration with the Kelowna Museum Society.

Visitors to Laurel Square are invited to experience a virtual world full of multimedia information about the Okanagan apple industry. When visitors first approach the square, they should look for the big Apple crates/boxes where they will find a QR code to scan using their phone. The scanning will trigger a web AR tool or the option of download an app powered by Onirix.

The AR tour includes an apple game, as well as a glimpse into the Okanagan’s past - referencing historical imagery of the apple picking process. By using augmented technology, users can browse various multimedia information assets (audio narration, moving pictures), while seeing the site through the exciting lens of the AR world.

To make this project. Chloe Chang has created several 360 photos of the interior of the museum, scanned historical objects, created promotional material (photo, video and posters) and pitch deck.
