Starmus AR app and PhotographAR



This is an Augmented reality application to promote the Starmus Festival V in Zurich, Switzerland. This app is proposed by Swiss Sociaty of Virtual and Augmented Reality (SSVAR) which is a partner of Starmus.

The fifth edition of Starmus is back to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the man’s First Step on the Moon.

One of Switzerland’s most important cities, Zurich is also a major research and innovation centre, where Professor Peter Singer from ETH, together with his colleagues from Bern Professor Johannes Geiss and Peter Eberhardt have proposed and designed the famous Solar Wind Composition experiment taken by the Apollo astronauts to the Moon.

Starmus V features top scientists, legendary astronauts and cutting-edge art, discussion panels, round tables, debates, amazing performances and concerts, and much more.
