The Irish is Uniform is an augmented reality mobile application based on an exhibition of the same name. The application aims to create a more engaging experience for museum visitors by allowing interaction with virtual content based from the physical exhibit. User's scan markers associated to an exhibit object and are presented with 3D replicas, videos and/or audio to help create a narrative with the content.

This application was made for those who seek a more engaging experience when visiting a museum. User-centered and iterative design approaches were employed in the development of this along with questionnaires, interviews and consistent user testing at each iteration.

The exhibition itself aims to educate visitors on Irish involvement in military conflicts both domestic and abroad while also highlighting historical content from the remnants of the Tipperary Military Barracks which was destroyed after the 1916 rising.

Unity3D, Vuforia and C# were used for the development of this project. Any 3D assets were designed in 3DSMax. The application was exported from Unity3D to XCode so it could be converted to an iOS platform but is also accessible to Android users.
