Augmented Reality

What is augmented reality (AR)? Well, AR is when 3D digital people, creatures, or objects look as though they existing in our reality.

At Activate Studios we produce AR experiences which help in the workplace or at home as well as getting customers excited and engaged!

We can make anything in AR but we love to focus
on training and marketing experiences.

Making Augmented Reality

Activate Studios is an awarding winning augmented reality production company based in Brisbane.

We pride ourselves in building incredible augmented reality solutions. Our production process moves through research, storyboarding and narrative production, creative asset construction, development, testing, refinement and deployment.

We produce AR for all sorts of devices like
iOS, Android, Magic Leap and DAQARI.

Our feature AR project:

Brisbane Marketing: AR Portal

AR Portal is an app that includes a series of 360 videos designed to showcase the city of Brisbane’s most popular tourist destinations to Aussie travellers.

Users step through an augmented reality doorway to enter a new destination where they can experience what it’s really like to be there! We created three different portal destinations including Brisbane’s Eat Street Northshore and Kangaroo Point Cliffs, as well as Stradbroke Island!

AR for Entertainment & Education

‘AR Adventures’ and ‘Magic Mirror’ are augmented reality installations at Ipswich Library south of Brisbane, which enable children to enter themed worlds, explore visual effects and share their video creations.

AR Marketing

AR Portals with 360 Video

Augmented reality portals appeared in Sydney and Melbourne where users walked through to experience three Brisbane locations in AR, whilst interacting with the 360 video. Brisbane Marketing used these portals to market Brisbane and increase tourism in the colder months and promote unique Brisbane experiences such as Stradbroke Island.

AR Education

Gamification of medication literacy

The MedAugment™ app uses augmented reality to help users get a better understanding about their medications and related diseases or conditions, by scanning the packages or boxes of the medications. The app has been developed for smart devices and is the output of a research collaboration in Australia, between Queensland University of Technology (QUT), Activate Studios, NPS MedicineWise, Diabetes Queensland, TerryWhite Chemmart Group, and Princess Alexandra Hospital.

AR Education

Teaching children to make better choices

An augmented reality interactive comic book using gamification to teach empathy to young people. A joint venture between Activate Studios and Griffith University in Brisbane, and supported by the not for profit Positive Humans Movement. Activate sponsored the Activate Studios scholarship which produced a report proving that REMI could indeed increase empathy in children!

AR Marketing & Education

A 12 month AR shopping centre experience

Lendlease were looking for an innovative way to increase the foot traffic of their younger audience in a particular area of the Sunshine Plaza. We built an educational augmented reality scavenger hunt experienced through a purpose-built iOS and Android App and collectable trading cards.

AR Marketing

A digital AR showroom

Suzuki was looking for new ways of engagement which would allow their customers to have a virtual closeup of the new Suzuki Swift when it launched. Activate Studios built an AR activation experience engaging customers to be able to view the 2017 Swift virtually with all its features and specifications available, which was set up in Brisbane’s Queen St mall for the launch and subsequently given to all Suzuki dealers across Queensland.

AR Art and Festivals

Digital AR art

Installed at venues such as the Brisbane Powerhouse during the 2018 MELT Festival, True Toxic Love presents queer narratives through Augmented Reality art. A digital art installation activated through a free iOS and Android application in which the audience can view each artist’s 3D representation of the positive and negative side of love.

AR Eduction

Augmented reality books!

Experience the illustrations of Narelle Oliver come to life in augmented reality with our IOS and Android App ‘I WANT TO BE IN AR’! The ‘I WANT TO BE IN AR’ AR book was developed for installation at the Ipswich Art Gallery south of Brisbane and was featured at the opening of the StoryArts Festival Ipswich.

Let’s work together

The possible commercial and educational applications of AR are unlimited.

There are many advantages to using augmented reality in areas like medicine, tourism, the workplace, maintenance, and advertising.
