For Startup Weekend New Haven 2012
Aasta came up with the idea for middle school education. Allow students to interact in their own location with historical items and places.
What it does
Uses Augmented Reality technology to assist in education. Allows teachers to build an A/R teaching module which enables students to interact (using a smartphone or iPad application) in their own location with historical items and places. Quizzes could be supported with data going back to the teacher for each student.
How we built it
Strictly a canned demo that we used in the video at this point.
What's next for HistReality
We tried to validate the company as a not for profit, which killed our chances with the judges.
Current Demo site is here: http://www.histreality.com/
