In Tokyo, The Sunshine Aquarium can be difficult to locate, especially with several distractions visitors might meet with along the way.
In a brilliant move that combines human instinct with new technology, HAKUHODO Tokyo designed an augmented reality app with AR experts Junaio that features GPS penguins that lead users to the aquarium.
With the use of motion captured technology, adorable, waddling penguins can lead the way to the aquarium—users only need to follow their movements on their mobile phones.
The GPS penguins walk exactly like real penguins, making for an entertaining journey filled with smiles.
