Augmented reality film for Natural History Museum

The Guardian reports that the Natural History Museum in London has produced a world first for museums globally with its 45 minute augmented reality film, made for school children.

The film, titled Who Do You Think You Are? is viewed with a custom-built childproof touchscreen computer, similar to an iPad, and takes kids through the journey of life on earth from dinosaurs to homo erectus, all of which feature as 3D characters in the film.

E very seat in the Attenborough Studio at the museum is fitted with a computer and the documentary is narrated by Sir David himself.
