The augmented reality experience in the Futurecade exhibition housed in the Millennium Gallery provides a fascinating glimpse into the near future, showcasing Fargate’s potential as a hub for cultural and creative activities.
The technology allows you to step into a future-Fargate, experience the look and feel of it and see how a creative approach could revitalise our city centre. As you stroll around this virtual Fargate, you can move around it 1:1 scale and view it as if it were really there. You can use the walk function to teleport around the model
Here you can see here a ‘fly-through’ video of the augmented reality experience:
The interactive 3D model of future-Fargate is also available to view from home on your PC, Mac or mobile device.
Note: experience is best on the Kubity Go mobile app
