Augmented Reality at Waimangu Volcanic Valley, New Zealand
"We have found Specialist Apps to be a world class organisation to deal with. We have worked with them on some truly innovative ways to present what is unique and special about Waimangu Volcanic Valley for our visitors and the response has been great.
Using augmented reality has proven to be extremely useful as we look to engage guests in hidden aspects of our offering and the functionality for guests has been well received. A great bunch of talented people to deal with."
