Mural ARt in San Francisco
SOMA Mural Project looks to be an interactive piece that combines the beauty of city art with San Francisco's tech nature. Viewers of the mural will be able to use an augmented reality app to access additional storytelling information.
I haven't selected the initial augmented reality platform yet, and in efforts to help my friends in the industry, the mural will be the marker for a variety of AR browser platforms that will share the chapter's message over time.
Will this be the first AR mural in San Francisco? No, I have created AR experiences from murals around the city for personal testing, and sure others have as well, but it will be the first AR mural in SOMA around the intersection of 5th and Howard.
The mural will be completed this year so expect another write up with video from the launch event.
