The figure of the mountain goat, «Guardiaun Grischun» has reigned on Piz Nair, high above St. Moritz, for 60 years. Steiner Sarnen Schweiz has now erected a virtual monument to the windswept and weathered landmark and popular photo opportunity. The augmented reality app, developed in cooperation with apelab, gives insights into the strange and spectacular history of this mountain goat – from design and manufacture to installation of the massive statue on the 3,057-meter summit.
At the VRCORE Awards 2018 in Beijing the App was awarded «Best Augmented Reality Application».
The app will be presented as a best practice example at the «Tourism Professional Meeting 2018» in Sierre, on 7 December 2018. The theme of the event is «Virtual Realities and Artificial Intelligence in Tourism».
