Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong launches virtual Merlion.
This augmented reality experience was designed and created by STA and SEG (School of Engineering). Combining immersive experience with art, the virtual Merlion was wrapped with digital art pieces by Fern Green Primary School students. The installation was launched by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong together with Senior Minister of State, Ministry of Health and Ministry of Transport, Dr Lam Pin Min and Member of Parliament Mr Darryl David at the PAssionArtsFestival 2019 at Bishan Park. This immersive installation allowed visitors to pose and interact with the virtual Merlion and snap photos with it.
“The use of Augmented Reality technology was refreshing for many participants who have not been exposed to such technology before,” shared the People’s Association.
