New vir­tual re­al­ity app brings Shake­speare to life

Timeless Travels Magazine - - ART NEWS -

Shake­speare’s England has an­nounced the launch of a new, free, aug­mented re­al­ity (AR) prod­uct that brings the story of Wil­liam Shake­speare’s New Place in Strat­ford-up­onAvon to vir­tual life. The ground-break­ing AR ex­pe­ri­ence trans­ports the user back in time to dis­cover the story of the man be­hind the works, with Shake­speare him­self as their per­sonal guide.

It has been de­vel­oped as part of a gov­ern­ment-funded project to at­tract new au­di­ences to 12 of England’s most his­toric towns and cities.
