Stargazing AR

Combining augmented reality, education, and live broadcast TV.

An App Preview of Stargazing AR, an AR app developed by Sydney based game development studio Chaos Theory Games
“ABC AR - Space Discovery” is a fun collection of minigames, and the ABC’s first augmented reality app.

Designed to be used in conjunction with the ABC's original TV program: Stargazing Live, each minigame explores an out of this world concept: Piloting sections of the International Space Station in zero gravity, learning about Jupiter’s most interesting attributes, and taking control of a futuristic laser to protect the ISS from incoming space junk.

We were presented with

The Challenge

Working with Nakatomi's in house team, we had 3 weeks to deliver an AR app that would be used in conjunction with the “Stargazing Live” TV program.

That became

The Solution

Tight Timeline = Tight Teamwork

Our team worked in-house with the client to ensure smooth integration of components. We ran performance benchmarks on target devices and wrote user guides on mobile specific considerations for using Unreal engine, making it easy for the client’s team to deliver their first mobile project using Unreal.

App Store Publishing and Distribution

We advised the client on publishing requirements, common pitfalls to avoid in the submission process, and how to navigate provisioning profiles and app signing. We also took screenshots and helped uploading builds to the app stores.

ARCore Support

Full ARCore support in Unreal was so cutting edge (at the time) that it was broken. We compiled a custom version of Unreal with modifications suggested by Google to fix this functionality and enable better tracking on Android devices.
