Civilisations AR

In a major collaboration with BBC R&D and the arts and museums sector, Nexus Studios developed ‘Civilisations AR’, the BBC’s first augmented reality app, created to accompany ‘Civilisations’, BBC Two’s landmark arts and culture series

The app showcases more than 30 historic artefacts from across the globe in glorious AR, including an ancient Egyptian mummy from the Torquay Museum, Rodin’s The Kiss from the National Museum of Wales and masterpieces by Tintoretto, Bellini and Turner.

We built the app entirely in Unity and used the latest in AR technology including ARKit and ARCore to bring this interactive experience to both iOS and Android devices.

I was the lead Unity developer in a small dev team that built Civilisations AR at Nexus Studios London.
