New Augmented Reality Hiking Tour Launches at the DinoTracks Site
Did you know that the El Paso region was once a beach where dinosaurs roamed?
Dinosaur footprint fossils at Insights’ DinoTracks site in Sunland Park, NM reveal a 98 million-year-old history rich with over five different species of dinosaurs, volcanos, and marine organisms. With Insights’ new Explore AR app, you and your family can hike with dinosaurs in augmented reality when you visit the DinoTracks site and use the app to take a guided hiking tour of the site. English and Spanish versions of the app are FREE for a limited time. The app download price will be $5 after the first 1,000 downloads.
The Explore AR DinoTracks tour allows visitors to use their tablet or smartphone to see augmented reality outlines of real dinosaur footprint fossils by scanning QR codes along the tour. Visitors can also see animations of the dinosaurs that made the tracks and 360 degree panoramas of the prehistoric ecosystems in which they lived. The Explore AR DinoTracks tour will guide you through all ten stops on Insights’ 1.5 mile loop hike at the DinoTracks site near the base of Mt. Cristo Rey in Sunland Park, NM. This app was developed by Boost Human with support from the Paso del Norte Health foundation.
