Let’s Find Freshwater Crabs!
An Augmented Reality Educational Book for Children on Maltese Animals
‘Let’s Find Freshwater Crabs!’ seeks to combine analogue media with digital technology through the use of a picture storybook with superimposed animations and 3D models using Augmented Reality. The story follows Kiki the explorer’s journey in finding Maltese freshwater crabs in the wild- but there is a catch- Maltese freshwater crabs are a rare sight these days. The AR elements breathe life into the static book which helps to pique the interest and imagination of children, offering them an opportunity to learn about Maltese animals and how to safeguard them in their own little ways. This project was done as a part of the Batchlores of Fine Arts in Digital Arts Dissertation Project. You can view the whole project on https://adminctrlz.github.io/students/vincianne_scerri/index.html
