Moonraker partnered with tech studio Zubr and Tourism Northern Ireland, to bring the benefits of Augmented Reality (AR) to one of Northern Ireland’s best loved attractions – Carrickfergus castle.. The result of the project is a unique and immersive experience for castle visitors, allowing them to use an app to reveal hidden layers behind the castle’s walls, taking visitors on a journey through pivotal points in the castle’s history.
The studio played a leading role in the process, using their expertise as visual effects artists to create high-quality and believable content. To really bring the past to life, the team chose three points of interest within the Carrickfergus Castle to be visualised. The plan was to combine beautiful visuals with a bespoke app, powered by cutting-edge technology.
