Engadget: Thanks to AR, the Statue of Liberty is more accessible than ever

Engadget: Thanks to AR, the Statue of Liberty is more accessible than ever. “Rather than build the Statue of Liberty in such a way that its 200,000-lb copper shell stood upright on its own, Gustave Eiffel — the man behind the eponymous tower — designed it around a massive inner framework. You might have already known this, but it’s the kind of detail that doesn’t often spring to mind unless you’re 1) a French/American history buff or 2) someone who has already been inside the thing. Thankfully, to coincide with the opening of the official Statue of Liberty museum this week, there’s a new AR-focused iOS app to give visitors and the far-flung curious an up-close look at France’s majestic gift to the US.”
