The Mauritshuis in The Hague is a world renowned museum featuring the best Dutch painters. But it also has the Golden Room, an ornate space filled with exclusive paintings by Giovanni Antonio Pellegrini.
We were asked to use our Augmented Reality app buildings skill to inform and excite museum visitors about the artist, and reveal the magic behind their recent restoration. Using our app you are put in the driver’s seat of the restoration process. You make the decisions and you call the shots! And when you have restored all the paintings we will reward you with a revolutionary experience. Watch the ceiling break away and see our heavens in an amazing display of what Pellegrini could have made with the latest technology!
Cutting edge Augmented Reality
Working in such an extraordinary space posed some big challenges for an Augmented Reality app.
Current AR technology is not suited to larger spaces, low or changing lighting or reflective surfaces – exactly what you have in a museum. TWNKLS decided to rise to that challenge and create an advanced new way of recognizing and tracking markerless worlds, by using Edge Based Tracking. This allows us to show a faithful 3D representation over a whole host of situations. This TWNKLS proprietary technology is a major breakthrough in AR technology, and at the very forefront of what’s possible.
About the Mauritshuis and the Golden Room
In September of 2012 the Mauritshuis and Royal Dutch Shell started a complete restauration of the works that Venetian painter Pellegrini made especially for their Golden Room.
Since a while the Golden Room is shining in all its splendor for the public.
Now available for Android and iOS.
