If you’re going to be in New York between November 19th and August 12th, download the Beyond Planet Earth Augmented Reality app developed by Patched Reality onto your iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad 2, and stop by a certain museum that specializes in natural history (Map). The exhibit itself is stunning – Gizmodo calls it a “Can’t miss”. The curators and museum staff have really outdone themselves.
If you can’t make it to the museum, you can still have fun at home with the web version.
In all, there are 11 augmentations that you can collect. Taking photos is encouraged – so go ahead and take a picture of yourself with the Curiosity Mars rover or a lunar space elevator, and share it with your friends on Facebook or Twitter. If you stop by, I hope you enjoy the show and learn a lot in the process!
