DIMINISHING GENERATIONS BOOKS
A PERMANENT COLLECTION IN THE "LIBRARY OF CONGRESS"
AVAILABLE TO PURCHASE BELOW
History being told through the eyes of American Veterans from the Greatest Generation during World War II through to the Vietnam War.
The Diminishing Generations books utilizes Augmented Reality technology, which places digital content between the user and the physical world. In this case, the AR-enabled apps allow the user to “scan” the images of the veterans in the books and access additional content such as videos and photo galleries, sharing more of each veteran's story”.
With the help of advanced AR technology (e.g. adding computer vision and image recognition) the information about the surrounding real world of the user becomes interactive and digitally manipulable. Artificial information about the environment and its objects can be overlaid on the books. Who could have imagined videos coming right off the pages of a book?
APP IS FREE
Here is a video showing how the app looks and how it works with the books. Download the free "Diminishing Generations" app and browse around to see these amazing veterans who took their time to tell their own stories.
