The CORE is pleased to announce that a state-of-the-art Augmented Reality Experience is coming to the downtown shopping centre this spring starting Monday, April 1. Running throughout the month until April 30, 2019, the family-friendly interactive installation will feature dinosaurs, whales, giraffes, elephants and more.

Presented in partnership with INDE, a UK-based technology provider, the experience will blend Augmented Reality (AR) characters with real life people, creating the illusion of real interactions on a large screen. Shoppers will appear on the screen next to the AR animals, creating uniquely memorable moments and photo/video opportunities.

Shoppers of all ages will get up close and personal with characters such as polar bears, penguins, and a T-Rex by interacting with three different experiences including:

  • Air, Land & Sea
  • Arctic Explorer
  • Back to the Jurassic

Calgarians are invited to activate their imagination and partake in this free Augmented Reality Experience daily throughout the month of April during regular business hours. For more information visit coreshopping.ca.
