David Attenborough hologram to front tour guide phone app
Augmented reality app lets people visit UK green spaces with ‘Attenborough in your pocket’
Sir David Attenborough is to front a new app that will allow mobile phone users to enlist the presenter as a virtual tour guide who will appear in holographic videos when they visit sights across the UK.
The 94-year-old will be the centrepiece of a new augmented reality app, which will be released alongside the BBC’s next landmark natural history TV series, The Green Planet, which launches next year. It will feature digitally streamed plants and creatures in real-world sights when visitors use their mobile phones.
