Demo video of the Omaha Beach app
The Omaha Beach app lets you stand on the beach in Normandy and experience D-Day on your smartphone. See the demo video of the app developed by Professor Gunnar Liestøl here.
Professor Gunnar Liestøl at the Department of Media and Communication at the University of Oslo has together with 12 students developed an app that reconstructs the events that took place at Omaha Beach just before and after H–Hour (06:30 AM) in the morning of June 6 1944.
The augmented reality technology combines data from the physical world with digital information, such as 3D animation and sound. The app is published on the publishing platform Situated Simulations (SitSim), developed by Liestøl together with Tomas Stenarson in CodeGrind AB and Šarūnas Ledas in Tag of Joy.
