We’re very lucky to be working with the extraordinary Luke Hollis and the team at Archimedes Digital, based in Cambridge. These talented digital nomads have created a prototype North End Story Vault app, and the possibilities for this cutting-edge technology are truly mind boggling.
In the near future, an “augmented reality” version of the bronze North End Story Map will be available on your mobile device while you stand in North Square. Stories from the North End Story Vault are attached to the map. You will be able to search the Vault, add your own North End stories, create a tour to visit the places of your chosen stories, and experience virtual historic reconstructions of the surrounding neighborhood.
While the North End Story Vault was part of A+J’s idea for North Square Stories from the very beginning, we will need to seek additional funding in order to fully develop the app. Any people or organizations interested in participating in this exciting phase of the project are encouraged to contact us.
Stories for the Vault can be submitted here.
