[Hong Kong] To align with the Tai O Leisure and Recreation Plan which includes 3 walking trails on 3 focuses, Cultural, Heritage and Scenery, LantAR was released on 29 Apr to guide visitors around Tai O. To remove the hassle of downloading apps, LantAR is a web application which does not require users to download any mobile application but simply browse the web using native mobile web browsers. Within the web “app”, a 3D avatar acts as a virtual tour guide to all attractions in Tai O.
Users using LantAR will also find location-based virtual signages providing brief information and interesting stories regarding the background of each tourist spot. The web app will also provide precise wayfinding for visitors in need of navigation assistance. Another interactive function is “LantAR” will change her costume when she arrives at specific locations around Tai O.
