In a major collaboration with BBC R&D and the arts and museums sector, Nexus Studios developed ‘Civilisations AR’, the BBC’s first augmented reality app.
Created to accompany ‘Civilisations’, BBC Two’s landmark arts and culture series, the app showcases more than 40 historic artefacts from across the globe including an ancient Egyptian mummy from the Torquay Museum, Rodin’s The Kiss from the National Museum of Wales, iconic sculptures from Henry Moore and Barbara Hepworth and masterpieces by Tintoretto, Bellini and Turner.

Civilisations x Magic Leap
Based on the success of the original Civilisations AR, we collaborated with Magic Leap to bring some of the most iconic artefacts to life in Extended Reality. Through the combination of 3D scanning and spatial computing we’re crafting a new interactive experience for users. Now, not only can users hold history in the palm of their hands, but they can also curate a selection of their favourite artefacts, scale them to choice, move around them and get up close. Civilisations for Magic Leap represents the future of personalised cultural experiences.
