Nikola Tesla AR - Experience the world's first mobile augmented reality app to honor Nikola Tesla.

Nikola Tesla is arguably one the most innovative scientists and inventors of the 20th century. So why is he largely ignored in history and science classes across the country?

 

Using augmented reality, children and adults alike can now learn more about Tesla by downloading the free app and scanning poster designs with their mobile devices.

 

The app and its corresponding interactive posters up the ante on the "edutainment" experience. By way of 3D animation and the video playback of short documentary films, the AR app brings awareness to Tesla’s dream of a world with free, renewable energy. We're helping to make this dream a reality via education.

How the app works

1. Download and launch the Nikola Tesla AR app.
