Fluxguide App “Ovilara – Heroes of the Roman Age” is nominated for the Special App Award 2019!
The Special App Award 2019 is an Award for Innovative Apps in Cultural Heritage and will be presented by an expert jury of archaeologists and digital heritage educators during this year’s CHNT conference (Vienna City Hall, 6th of November). The “International Conference on Cultural Heritage and New Technologies” organized by the Vienna City Archeology has been held annually since 1996.

Innovative cultural heritage mediation with augmented reality:

The app „Heroes of the Roman Age” is a gamified multimedia tour of the city center. Augmented reality applications playfully bring to life Roman inhabitants of the city  („Heroes“) and scenic representations of various locations. The app entertains, surprises and animates to learn more about the city archeology of Wels (former Ovilava).

  • Target signs trigger the animated augmented reality stagings. A bronze equestrian statue appears virtually, or the gate of the gigantic city wall opens. A bit further, it steams out of the pots of the food stall.
  • Carefully study the historical short explanations and correctly answer the quiz questions may collect points.
  • Completed all stations will be rewarded with a heroes card collection.

This app provides an unprecedented combination of mobile e-learning, location based gamification and augmented reality for school education. It enables teachers and students to learn about history, archeology and the European heritage. The project was consulted by renowed archeologists and historians which guaranteed high-level content backing the didactical and gamified learning approach.

Stay tuned & Fingers crossed 😉
