New Tech for an old Story

How Altuit helped the Witte Museum using Augmented Reality

The team at Altuit recently completed an augmented reality exhibit for the Witte Museum, a Smithsonian affiliated institution in San Antonio, Texas.

The interactive exhibit depicts San Antonio and the Behar area in 1836. Using George Nelson's 8 foot by 10 foot meticulously crafted diorama, the Witte 300 app brings to life the history of the Alamo siege using an overlay of multiple augmented reality scenes displaying the action.

Multiple noted historians including Stephen Hardin, Ph.D., Gary Zaboly and Bruce Shakelford help tell the story that is part of the Confluence and Culture exhibition which examines 300 years of history of San Antonio.

Alamo Reality, LLC, which Altuit has worked with to create the amazing Experience Real History: The Alamo augmented reality apps, was also instrumental in the development process.

Altuit's CEO Chipp Walters commented, "The exhibit has been a great success where visitors can use their phones or museum supplied tablets as a window to old stories using new technologies."

The exhibit is currently being shown in San Antonio at the Witte Museum through the end of this year.
