Experience old stories in a new way with Black Terminus

Digital archivist Damien McDuffie is using Unity and augmented reality (AR) to open people’s eyes to the Black stories and histories that surround us. Founded to celebrate Black culture, the Black Terminus AR app is turning art and artifacts – public murals, statues, and memorials – into immersive narratives with a simple drag-and-drop editor. A creator portal was recently shipped, so you can now create your own AR experiences in minutes. Download the app to start creating immersive memories as you travel.

Travel to a sky temple with Cause + Christi

Cause + Christi are two of the most creative world builders around. With Unity, they’ve built a digital twin of the iconic Al Wasl Dome in Dubai, a VR red carpet event for the premiere of Baba Yaga, and so much more. They create metaverse destinations, and whether based in reality or wholly imagined, many of their virtual spaces support real-world sustainability efforts. If you’re looking for a place to travel this summer that will allow you to destress and decompress, check out Christi’s Sky Temple.

Staycation in style with Volu

Whether it is due to time, money, or pesky pandemic inconveniences, plans fall through. You might not be able to get to a beach, but with Volu you can be anywhere. Powered by Unity, the Volu app allows you to express and project yourself. It is as simple as recording a video, and within a few seconds, a 3D version (“vologram”) of you is ready to travel to any backdrop you choose. You can share the vologram with your friends to create content and be present wherever they are.

Trondheim

Explore the future of Trondheim

Located on the shore of Trondheim Fjord, Trondheim is the fourth largest city in Norway. The city was founded by Viking King Olav Tryggvason in 997 and has a rich Nordic history. In 2020, local architects went to work on modeling what the city will look like in 2050 to help address challenges regarding infrastructure, transportation, and climate change. Martin Vitsø, a geodata specialist, used Unity to visualize large sets of data and involve the community in its urban planning.
