AR Enhances 9/11 20th Anniversary Memorial

Tech startup ReplayAR employs augmented reality (AR) to recreate scenes from the September 11, 2001 terror attacks on the World Trade Center in lower Manhattan. The company uses an app that overlays images of the historic events on present-day locations where they happened. The result is a unique video in which the New Yorkers of September 11, 2001 cross paths with the New Yorkers of today.

Taking images one at a time, AR scenes from 9/11 are set in and around Lower Manhattan using the free ReplayAR app on an iPhone 11. Inventor and ReplayAR Founder Jay Huddy says, “Augmented reality allows us to uncover and explore the invisible history that surrounds us in everyday life. As the 20th anniversary of September 11th approaches, we felt this was an ideal way to memorialize those who were lost and to remember the brave heroes who sacrificed their lives trying to save others.”
