A tool to present Luxembourg research in an innovative, interactive way

The first campaign in Luxembourg to blend traditional ‘postering’ with AR technology, the letzSCIENCE experiences are meant to stir curiosity among viewers – by learning about a research topic, or scientific phenomenon in an augmented reality experience, letzSCIENCE aims to get people thirsty for more information about the research behind the augmented reality experiences.  

In addition to an interactive experience, each AR experience features an overview of selected research projects and groups in Luxembourg – the full stories can be discovered on the dedicated website letzSCIENCE.lu.

Why create an app for letzSCIENCE?

The first edition of letzSCIENCE took place in August 2020. For the first edition, we wanted to test our concept and see how people in Luxembourg would respond to science in augmented reality. It was too soon for an app, therefore we used a ‘Web AR’. As Web AR runs over the browser, we were very limited in what we could include in our AR experiences.  

The first edition was a success, so now letzSCIENCE returns with bigger and more immersive AR experiences! This is only possible in the form of an app, where the AR possibilities are almost endless.  

letzSCIENCE will continue and over time we will build up a beautiful library of immersive augmented reality experiences that provide a glimpse of the important topics researchers in Luxembourg are working on, with FNR support.
