Experience Design Studio
SENSEcity is an Experience Design Studio based in Glasgow. They specialise in the development of Augmented Reality (AR) experiences for the cultural heritage and tourism sectors that enable users to explore our shared cities, venues, and rural heritage sites through immersive experiences which bring those environments to life. SENSEcity deliver their work through two primary channels, SENSEcity Walks and Studio SENSEcity.
SENSEcity Walks is an AR enabled, self-guided walking tour app, which offers users a curated city walk through which visitors can experience stories of the past through the technology of the future. Over 20,000 visitors have enjoyed the experience to date.
Studio SENSEcity delivers bespoke immersive projects while merging innovative 21st century technologies with custom hardware designs using sustainable methods.
In 2020 SENSEcity were selected to respond to Historic Environment Scotland’s (HES) Creative Informatics Challenge Project. They developed and tested a proof of concept of a viewing scope with integrated AR software that let visitors of Urquhart Castle be transported back to the 15th century and experience a Castleton come to life.
Through further support from Innovate UK and as Creative Informatics Resident Entrepreneurs, they are now developing a prototype of Historiscope at Stirling Castle bringing parts of the Castle back to life when it was at its prime.
