DATE: November 2015
VENUE: Dublin City
Take a walking tour of significant Dublin locations associated with the Easter Rising curated and developed by a team of researchers from University College Dublin. This project contributes to the UCD Decade of Centenaries programme through the design of an augmented reality (AR) mobile app. Easy to download for android and from the App Store, it will take you on a poignant journey through the streets of Dublin City relating the events of Easter 1916.
The research team behind this app aim to explore the convergence of human–computer interaction (HCI), digital curation and preservation in the field of cultural heritage tourism technology as well as understanding how this technology impacts on the tourist/user experience. The research will provide an app available for the Centenary as well as learning experiences for postgraduate students, with HCI and digital curation students working together on app content development and evaluation.
