Augmented Reality: Barcelona poetic route
This post is also available in: Spanish, Catalan
We’re now developing a Barcelona poetic route layar. Everyone who has layar browser installed in their iPhone/iPad and Android will be able to download the layer for free and do the same route we’ll do on 7th March 2012 with Jaume C. Pons Alorda.
The idea is to give people the chance of making the same route Jaume C. Pons did reciting his poems – and do the route in a very interactive and interesting way. Augmented reality! The user will be able to follow the route (receiving information about how to get to the different points in which Jaume will recite poems). Once the user arrives at the different points she/he will be able to watch videos of Jaume reciting the poems in the same place they are. Definitely, a different way of experiencing Barcelona – and a different way of experiencing poetry.
It’s like the idea of “i was here” but better. We want to give poetry all the chances it has to be listened at and to be experienced. And also the idea of ubiquity (ubicuo) – being everywhere.
