Jubilee Walk implementation:

Discover the history of Singapore in a new innovative way

Discovery the history of Singapore’s most iconic landmarks with the award-winning Singapore Time Walk mobile app. Using location based services, physical hotspots and augmented reality you will see Singapore in a way you haven’t seen before.

The app has an overview of all the iconic landmarks that can be visited. The user can freely navigate to each landmark or use the Jubilee Walk route feature which will lay out the route in the app. The map view in the app displays all the landmarks and the AR hotspots. When the user is physically near an AR hotspot the AR functionality in the app becomes enabled. In AR mode the user can view an animated playback of the past 50 years of history for that land mark over the actual video capture of their device. Another feature is the photo overlay view. Using this feature the user can view historic pictures as an overlay over the current camera capture. Using a slider the user can then compare the old and the new.

I created the UX / interaction design for the mobile apps.
