University Major Project.
This project is about giving a new life to products that have in time become obsolete, in a way loosing their true purpose. Tower Viewers have been around since the 19th century and have not evolved much since. There have been some attempts at re-purposing Tower Viewers yet most of them have been only in regards to the exterior design and/or magnification of the optics in the binoculars. Being passionate about Virtual and Augmented reality I saw the opportunity to implement one or both of these technologies within a re-design of a coin operated binocular, producing a device that can be not only aesthetically appealing and intriguing but also an educational and immersive experience.
