Steetmuseum IPhone App use augmented reality

The Museum of London recently released a free iPhone app called Streetmuseum which incorporates their extensive art and photographic collections with augmented reality. According to the museum, the application would be providing users a window through time. The app leads you to various locations around London using either the map or GPS. Once you’re there, click the “3D View” button, and the app will recognize the location and overlay the historical photograph over the live video feed of the real world, giving you a brief glimpse into how the past looked - just like in the image above. More images after the jump!

This app allows the present and the past to collide and share their secrets. Streetmuseum opens up the city in new and exciting ways. The launch of the Streetmuseum app is an exciting development for the Museum of London.” – Jack Lohman, Director of the Museum of London.
