Is It Any Good?
This lovely, info-packed artistic exploration from the BBC does AR the right way. Civilisations AR is a pretty experience that's easy and fun to use. While many AR apps today are clunky, Civilisations AR easily recognizes flat surfaces in all sorts of light. Those who don't want to use it can turn it off, which makes it more accessible to a range of users. The collection of art objects is diverse and interesting, and you can rotate on-screen to explore all sides or zoom in for the detail work. Curious kids will delight in all of the additional information provided, as well as the chance to hunt down hotspots all over each artifact. Overall, Civilisations AR from the BBC is an educational gem.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
