Augmented Reality table radio made with AR-media

After developing a successful method for moulding plywood in the early 1940s, Charles and Ray Eames employed the acquired know-how to create a wide range of products – including radio cabinets. By 1952, roughly 200,000 radios with cabinets designed by the Eameses had been sold by various manufacturers.

One design, however, never went into production: an elegant table radio with a moulded plywood case, whose compact shape and austere, more technical look were unusual for the time. (Source: https://designmuseumshop.com/products/eames-radio)

AR-media user and evangelist Daniel Nunes Kroll, CEO of the Brasilian company A Arquiteta, created a fantastic Augmented Reality experience using the Eames Radio itself, making it play music and giving the user the ability to switch from one radio station to another. 

This is a planar experience you can try yourself for free. Download the AR-media app for iOS or Android, download and print the image trigger from the app; frame the trigger using the AR-media app and enjoy this interactive AR experience.

How it was created using AR-media Studio

This interactive AR experience was created using AR-media Studio, the Mixed Reality platform powered by Inglobe Technologies.

This project was created as a planar project, meaning that the 3D content is anchored to a target image.

The 3D radio was added inside the 3D editor and from there the interactions were created by using the AR-media Behaviours Manager, that lets you manage several types of interactions and conditions.
