Apple has started a new augmented reality app as part of its promotion for season 2 of For All Mankind on Apple TV+.
Apple is planning to launch season 2 of For All Mankind, with “For All Mankind: Time Capsule,” an application that lets users discover details from the show in AR.
“For All Mankind: Time Capsule’ is a new augmented reality (AR) experience that brings the world of the popular Apple TV+ series ‘For All Mankind’ right into the homes of fans to uncover memories from the lives of Danny Stevens (Casey Johnson) and his parents, astronauts Gordo (Michael Dorman) and Tracy Stevens (Sarah Jones), in the decade between season one and season two.” – Apple announcement.
The application provides an interactive augmented reality experience that lets users join Danny, one of the show’s characters as Danny goes through artifacts that give details on the other characters.
“AR presents a new and exciting opportunity to bring the world of ‘For All Mankind’ literally into the homes of the audience in a way that hasn’t been possible before. I was intrigued from the very beginning at the idea that we could use AR to immerse the audience in the alternate history aspect of the series, explaining and illustrating some of the historical events and technological advances that are implied in the show but which we never had a chance to fully present.” – Ron Moore, Executive Producer and Creator of the show.
Each augmented reality object in the application has its own story.
With LiDAR scanner such as iPhone 12 Pro Max, iPhone 12 Pro, and iPad Pro, Apple smart devices will let users use a slide projector to view photos of Danny.
Users can download the “For All Mankind: Time Capsule” application from the App Store for free in the US. The application will be made available to the rest of the world towards the end of February. Season 2 of the series will start airing this Friday, 19 February 2021.
