The planners and developers of Eko Atlantic have released their first mobile app for use on all new generation smart phones and tablets (Android and iOS platforms). The app is also interactive with the new Eko Atlantic Milestones newsletter that is available at their sales office in Ahmadu Bello Way and online.
The physical reality of Eko Atlantic is clear to see with the naked eye off the shore of Victoria Island. But now the virtual reality of the project can be brought to life.
Without doubt, the smartest feature is Augmented Reality (AR) –a cutting edge technology that displays a digitally enhanced view of objects or locations. Using the camera and sensors in a smartphone or tablet, AR adds layers of digital information- videos, photos, sounds, graphics or GPS data – directly on top of items in the real world.
In addition to an easy-to-use presentation, the app features a graphic overview of the infrastructure networks progress as well as a gyroscope-enhanced virtual tour enabling users to navigate through the Eko Atlantic city construction site just by moving their mobile device around.
‘The pre-launch app is a curtain raiser for what comes next,’ said Brent Sadler, Eko Atlantic’s consultant for communications. ‘What you can see with the app now takes the visibility of Eko Atlantic to an entirely new level. But we are going to make the app even better, smarter and more interactive.’
The Milestones newsletter together with Eko Atlantic’s new mobile app enables recipients to interact with selected pages of the journal through the Augmented Reality (AR) function.
The journal has 20-pages of illustrated articles reporting on the construction of roads and bridges in Eko Atlantic as well as the first tower blocks being built.
The app can be downloaded for free from the App Store or Google Play. More information can be obtained by visiting the Eko Atlantic website http://www.ekoatlantic.com.
Milestones is available in printed form, PDF downloadable from http://www.ekoatlantic.com and flipbook from the same website.
