Limited Capacity seats available

John Russick and Alan Rhodes of the Chicago History Museum provide a tour of the site of the Eastland Disaster in downtown Chicago. This Augmented Reality (AR) mobile app creatively interprets images from the Chicago History Museum's massive photo archive and brings them back to the site where they were originally recorded. The app, called Chicago 00, is a new kind of experience with historical imagery. The AR technology and the user experience provide an opportunity to talk about digital preservation, mobile interpretation, and the future of historical collections.

Cost: $25
