Grand Teton experiments with ‘augmented reality’

“Walker enjoyed the faulty, arboreal ‘augmented reality’ moose courtesy of the ‘animal cam,’ a feature of the all-new Jenny Lake Explorer App. The software, still in the beta phase, is geared toward young people, providing them with a digital, interactive extension of interpretative signage and other features passed annually by the million or so annual visitors who go check out Jenny Lake. Other than seeing the computer-generated critters, the application also helps kids to identify plants and animals, identify the Teton peaks and even gear up and virtually climb the Grand.”
