The first two Apple Store retailers were opened on May 19, 2001. Now, 20 years after this event, IOS-devices users got the opportunity to visit the store in Tysons Corner, Virginia in augmented reality. He looks like the same as in the video recorded, written by Steve Jobs 20 years ago.
The model of augmented reality is a painstaking reconstruction of the original store in this form, how he saw the first visitors, up to the number and color of computers on each table. You can walk along the virtual model by downloading the file by reference to your iPhone or iPad. It is worth noting that it is optimized for devices based on Apple A12 chipset or newer.
The first Apple Store was divided into such sections as “house”, “for professionals”, “Music”, “Films”, “Photo”, “For Children” and “Other”. In addition to Apple products, it features software and hardware, optimized to work with Mac OS, including digital cameras and MP3 players. In the “Other” section, you could find printers, keyboards, cables and more.
The Apple Store was even the so-called “theater”, which conducted various lectures, seminars, demonstrations of software and much more. An interesting attribute of the Apple Store was a red phone that was intended to ensure that the Genius Bar employees are encountered with the user’s question, which cannot answer themselves, could ask him professionals from Cupertino. The phone is available as a separate AR object by reference, which can also be opened using Safari on the iPhone or iPad.
