Exeter Immersive

Augmented Reality in Education

Dinosaurs and Robots was a £5.6M project that involved the development of AR educational experiences, in collaboration with Innovate UK and a range of partners (including Factory 42, Almeida Theatre, Natural History Museum, Science Museum Group, Magic Leap, and Sky VR).

The University of Exeter received ~£100k to study the intended and realized user experience of a new augmented reality simulation, called Dimension X: Dinosaurs. This AR experience used Magic Leap technology to superimpose computer-generated graphics onto a specially curated set. Here, teams of players were called to Dimension X, an otherwordly realm, where they used ghost tracking equipment to contain onsite paranormal activity.  

By collecting and analysing user feedback data from this immersive experience, the research team were able to explore how the Natural History Museum can engage audiences beyond its own buildings.
