Augmented Asbury Park is an augmented reality reconstruction of key landmarks on the Asbury Park boardwalk.

Augmented reality allows the user of a smart phone or tablet to see a three-dimensional image on their screens. The 3D model can interact with a flat image or it can exist out in the open at a specific geographical location.

This whole thing started with the reconstruction of the carousel that was once found on the Asbury Park boardwalk. We were given a grant from Monmouth University to research the whereabouts of the carousel and reconstruct it in augmented reality. We drove to Hatfield, Pennsylvania to visit the Philadelphia Toboggan Company, the original manufacturer of the carousel. We discovered that in the 90s, the Asbury Park boardwalk carousel was sold to Family Kingdom, an amusement park in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. We drove to Myrtle Beach to shoot photos. We textured 3D models with the photos, and we uploaded the model to the web and published it.

This card is augmented. Download this image, follow the instructions, and you can have your own augmented carousel for FREE!

This augmented model is done and should remain in place indefinitely. You can see it using the free mobile app Layar either on site at the Asbury Boardwalk or with an augmented reality card-available for free at www.augmentedasburypark.com . It’s important for us that the experience is free for everyone.
