The SPIRIT research project team designs and implements a framework for mobile and location-aware interactive digital storytelling, turning history lessons into adventures. Through the installation of the SPIRIT App (under development), off-the-shelf mobile devices (smartphones, tablets) get transformed into ‘magic equipment’. It allows users to meet the ‘restless spirits’ of historical figures, by interacting with virtual characters in augmented reality.
