Curiscope has announced the launch of their next product, Curiscope Multiverse, in partnership with Future Tech Labs and San Shepherd, one of the creators of Star Chart, the astronomy app downloaded by over 40 million people worldwide.
Curiscope Multiverse will retail as packs for £39.99 / $49.95 and as individual posters for £24.99 / $34.95. Each poster covers a different Space topic, touching on the individual planets, the Solar System and the Earth. At launch there are 4 different designs with more to follow in the next couple of months. The posters pair with a free accompanying app that works on recent IOS & Android phones.
When viewed through the app, the wonders of the Solar System come into your classrooms and homes through augmented reality and are brought to life with animations, facts and cross-sections that let you explore them in detail.
With the product, Curiscope are also announcing their initiative to become a net positive company. For every poster sold, they’ll be planting a tree. They have announced this initiative in partnership with Bristol based company, Offset Earth.
Curiscope are well known as one of the leaders in Augmented Reality, creating the award-winning Virtuali-Tee that has now been sold in over 100 countries. This series of posters represents their next major product launch and their continued vision to bring learning to life through their AR apps and products.
Future Tech Labs has worked across AR and VR, recently partnering with Oculus and National Geographic on new releases. Future Tech Labs was founded by San Shepherd who, as part of Escapist Games, created one of the top immersive apps of all time with over 40m downloads for Star Chart and over 500k installs for their AR/VR specific apps.
Ed Barton, Co-Founder and CEO of Curiscope said “we’ve known San for about 4 years now and have followed his success with Star Chart. We’ve been really keen to create a new product around a new topic and to bring that to life. When we started thinking about Space, San was the natural partner.”
San Shepherd, Co-Founder and CEO of Future Tech Labs said “The quote, ‘Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I may remember. Involve me and I learn.’ has never been more true than today. Technology can now be used to make education immersive, fun, and social. Putting people at the heart, involving them, and letting them learn through playful osmosis.
As a result, Curiscope is the perfect long-term partner for us. With the success of the brilliant Virtuali-Tee, Ed has cemented Curiscope as a leader in providing innovative solutions for digital learning. We are pleased to have a partner of this calibre bring our vision of immersive education to a global audience and we’ll be working with one another on future posters, products and app updates.”
