‘Tech Tour’ Show by Creative AR Hub, Hollings Faculty, MMU @MSI’s Wearable Technology Festival

The ‘Tech Tours’ Show organised by Creative Augmented Realities Hub ( at Hollings Faculty, MMU was part of this year’s Wearable Technology Festival at Museum of Science and Industry from the 10th to 13th of March. Visitors were able to virtually explore an underground mine at Geevor Tin Mine Museum using Samsung GearVR as well as experience art collections at Manchester Art Gallery through augmented reality. The event has been a great success with visitors queuing to try out our application on Samsung GearVR.

“We were amazed and pleased by how very popular the activities were with visitors (and staff!) – there was constant demand all day, every day. However, nobody complained about queues because of the excellent people skills of all those delivering the activity. The activities themselves were beautifully designed and brilliantly presented – overall, most impressive!” Kay Gammy, Organiser of the festival
