A new augmented reality Walking with Dinosaurs smartphone and tablet app lets you free the prehistoric monsters to stomp down the street and roar to life in your home.
Released by BBC Worldwide in partnership with Twentieth Century Fox and creators Evergreen Studios, the app ties in with the 3D Walking with Dinosaurs movie which hits cinemas in December.
Using the camera function of a mobile or tablet device users will be able to pose in any real world location with the film’s stars.
Using state-of-the-art technology created for the movie, Walking with Dinosaurs: Photo Adventure brings the dinosaur characters to life in incredible lifelike detail with sophisticated animation, sound and graphics that show every tooth and scale.
The free to download app, available at iTunes and Google Play, awakens six dinosaur movie characters and thanks to enabled picture sharing, allows users to instantly upload their unique dinosaur posed images to Facebook and Twitter at the tap of a button in both ‘Photo Booth’ and ‘Adventure Mode’.
The app’s Adventure Mode uses a printable target to uniquely create a virtual dinosaur habitat on any flat surface.
Watch dinosaur rivalries play out in front of you as the beautifully animated Pachyrhinosaurus and Gorgosaurus, the 3D movie’s hero and villain, spring to life and vie for territory.
“Walking with Dinosaurs: Photo Adventure brilliantly uses augmented reality to bring the big screen stars of Walking with Dinosaurs bursting into your world thanks to a fun and creative app that allows you to come face to face with a gigantic Gorgosaurus and share the moment with your friends,” said Paul Joffe, VP Digital Entertainment & Games, BBC Worldwide.
