The experience requires the ARc augmented reality app downloaded from the Apple App Store or Google Play. Readers can point their smartphone’s camera to a custom Washington Post logo adjacent to the story in both print and digital to trigger the content. Users can see 3D models, rotate around a scene, and tap on the eye icon for contextual information or map pop-ups showing key locations in the case.
The ARc app experience and the Freddie Gray AR story were developed in conjunction with Empathetic Media. More detailed information on how to view the experience once the app is installed is available here.
