Bring your AR to life with advanced, ultra-realistic animated movement such as complex human and other organic-style motions.

animals + characters 

This is the grand-daddy of all AR! From a wide range of animals through to advanced, animated real-time humans, we've got you covered.

alternate realities

Hybridised AR + VR. With this AR we can allow users to walk through a 'portal' door in real life, and subsequently explore an alternate reality built in 3D.

terrain + mapping ar

Providing stunning accuracy, we can map almost any area of the planet topographically to provide your users with a unique way-finding experience.
