Google – Singapore Time Walk

August 2015

The Singapore Time Walk is a specifically designed augmented reality app by Google as sort of an SG50 birthday present to Singapore. With Time Walk, you can use your smartphone camera to point at landmarks such as the former City Hall or Old Supreme Court, bring up information and trivia about the place, plus view what the location looked like in the past. The coolest feature however, has to be the animated playback view of the past 50 years of these selected landmark locations. Google collaborated with the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth, National Heritage Board and Urban Redevelopment Authority to secure as many historical images as they can to form this historical reconstruction.
