Warjakka project by TaikaBox works to investigate and publish the history of the old sawmill island of Varjakka, near Oulu. They had figured that Augmented Reality (AR) would be great for that and asked Playsign to create a first test of the Warjakka AR app. It was made in early 2019 based on our earlier AR work for building permit reviews in 2018.

Folks from the project tested the AR app by actual remaining foundations of a house and sent a nice screenshot from midst the snowy forest:

The area is rich both in stories and places — we are looking forward to the next steps! TaikaBox has discussed with the history department at the university, the Oulu museum of arts and many partners about a full implementation. That would be a world class AR experience and we are proud to be involved.
