MXRS Launch – The Last Stand of the Argo


The Mixed Reality Storytelling exhibit has just been launched at the National Videogame Arcade in Nottingham!

It will be running for the entire month of February, every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 10 in the morning until 6 in the evening!
The exhibit will be open all week during half-term as well

At the exhibit you will be able to explore our Augmented Reality Diorama, “The Last Stand of the Argo”! Inspired Games Workshop’s Warhammer 40,000* tabletop wargaming universe, the diorama shows a thrilling snapshot from the desperate last stand of Squad Tigris, a strike force from the Imperium of Man, against the incoming forces of the Tau Empire.

Using our Augmented Reality application, you can scan the miniature battlefield and explore the story of the Argo and each of it’s characters.

In addition, you can bring along your own miniatures and have them scanned in our Miniature 3D scanning photobooth! Your models will be turned into highly detailed 3D models, such as those seen in our 3D gallery that you can use anywhere!

Later in the year, the National Videogame Arcade will host a Virtual Reality exhibit, where each scanned model will be become part of a VR gallery that you will be able to walk through and explore using a VR headset.

We got featured on Computerphile!
