Relative Scale is exhibiting at AAM 2022 in Boston on May 20-21. Please visit us in booth 820!
Our studio has been leaning heavily into WebAR. Being able to enjoy Augmented Reality across device platforms—directly in your web browser instead of having to download an app—results in a user experience that is efficient and nearly frictionless.
For our 2021 holiday card we designed and modeled an interactive snow globe and then activated it as a WebAR experience using 8th Wall. We began with a mood board and sketches to help us visualize the concept before illustrating every feature in the globe including the buildings, downtown Raleigh landmarks, trees, and snow. The illustrations were then modeled into 3D assets and developed in 8th Wall using A-Frame.
Want to brainstorm a WebAR idea with us? Let’s connect.
Join Relative Scale and the SEGD community for a Virtual Event on August 25. Nicole Ackman, Luke Cline, and Luis Zapata will lead a discussion about how our studio balances purpose with story in an effort to create a unique aesthetic for each media experience we produce.

The pandemic has reignited broad interest in touch-free technology in museums and other spaces. Here's an Ultraleap prototype we developed for the Georgia Capitol Museum. The app is designed for touch--and can still be experience using the touchscreen--but it was an interesting and illuminating exercise implementing the Ultraleap retroactively. Please contact us if you would like to discuss how we could do the same thing for your media installation.
