Microsoft recently released an AR app called Reveille which gives users a view into the major redevelopment of its headquarters in Redmond, Washington. The project will include the removal of 12 existing buildings and the construction of 18 new buildings along with new running and walking trails, open spaces and sports facilities.

Users simply need to install the app and then point it at a special pattern on a screen or printed out to see the campus in all its glory.

Now the app has been updated with a number of new features which also makes it easier to use.   Using a side menu (first screenshot above)  you can now access interactive 3D renders of the various views of the campus directly from the gallery area (above), without finding them on the map, and users can now also access various layers of features on the map, including panoramas and amenities, including Lake Bill and the famous cricket ground. It also includes new video telling the story of the development.

Viewers can look at the structure from various heights or directions to appreciate its full extent.

The apps can be found at the links below. See the special pattern below or in Microsoft’s PDF here. iOS users can click here.
