Oktoberfest 1910 .  Junaio Augmented Reality Channel by Jens Fakesch and Maximilian Hackenschmied lets you experience the history of the world’s largest public festival. Through augmented reality you can examine realistic 3Dmodels projected to an historical map of the Oktoberfest 1910.

Interaction – Through augmented reality the smartphone is the window to the past. You can either use the table version to examine a miniaturized version of the Oktoberfest on your desk, or you can actually be at the Theresienwiese and explore the historical ‘Wiesn’ in real size. Additional information in audio, text and animation is provided just tap on a building you’re interested in!

Table Version – A miniaturized version of the Oktoberfest is projected on a historical map, which you can print out. You can move the map or yourself in order to explore historical Wiesn from different angles and perspectives.

Reallife Version (not yet implemented) – Stand at the foot of the famous Bavaria explore the historical Oktoberfest in it’s geographical context. Buildings are situated at their actual position from a hundred years ago!

Mindset – We want to provide an unique experience in letting the user have a look at the great tradition of world’s biggest public festival.

This project was realized with Junaio, an app provided by Metaio. Oktoberfest 1910 and has its own Junaio Channel. Content, style etc. are uploaded with the Metaio Creator as well as coded by hand. All 3D models are created with Blender. 2D graphics are created/modified with various graphicsprogrammes (e.g. GIMP, Photoshop, Lightroom). The product is developed and tested on Android.

This project was created in the course of the lecture “Praktical Course 3D Modeling with Blender” supervised by Dr.-Ing. Wolfgang Höhl at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München | Media Informatics Groups in co-operation with metaio GmbH., summer term 2014.
