New Tech for an old Story
How Altuit helped the Witte Museum using Augmented Reality

Altuit's team recently crafted an augmented reality exhibit for the Witte Museum, a Smithsonian-affiliated establishment in San Antonio, Texas.

This immersive display portrays San Antonio and the Behar region as of 1836. Leveraging George Nelson's detailed 8x10-foot diorama, the 'Witte 300' app animates the history of the Alamo siege with a series of augmented reality scenes illustrating the unfolding events.

Esteemed historians like Stephen Hardin, Ph.D., Gary Zaboly, and Bruce Shakelford contribute to the narrative, which is a segment of the 'Confluence and Culture' exhibition that delves into San Antonio's 300-year history.

Alamo Reality, LLC, with whom Altuit collaborated to develop the remarkable 'Experience Real History: The Alamo' augmented reality apps, played a pivotal role in this project.

Chipp Walters, Altuit's CEO, remarked, "The exhibit has resonated with audiences, allowing visitors to peer through their devices or museum-provided tablets and journey into historical tales via modern tech."

Currently, the exhibit graces the Witte Museum in San Antonio and will remain on display until year's end.
