Space Shuttle Atlantis Augmented Reality
Virtual reality simulators let a visitor to the Space Shuttle Atlantis Attraction feel what it’s like to be an astronaut, walking in space and making repairs on the International Space Station. Other simulators allow the visitor to work the Shuttle’s robotic arm or operate a virtual crane. They can even dock the shuttle and bring it in for landing back on Earth. Moving an augmented reality viewer along the side of the actual Shuttle, the visitor can discover otherwise invisible aspects of its mechanical structures, from the cockpit to the rocket engines.
The Marvel Experience
Unified Field created the Avenger's Augmented Reality Wall for The Marvel Experience. This giant projection invites visitors to get up close and personal with their favorite superheroes. Standing in front of a giant projection, a visitor sees live video of themselves. Using a gesture technology interface, they strike a specific heroic pose and summon the corresponding superhero into the projection. The heroes leap, drop, and tumble in to interact with the visitor’s image, offering unlimited fun and plenty of opportunities for selfies with the superheroes.

You! The Experience
An augmented reality interactive puts a virtual human brain in the visitor’s hands. Holding a game card under a video camera triggers a 3D image of the brain to appear. The visitor plays spatial puzzles or memory games in augmented 3D space. As they play, they can see how different brain processes work, and zoom in to explore the brain’s structures.
