Well can you believe it? Westminster Abbey have released an App that will give Android, iPhone and iPad users intimate access to the royal church in a way which has never been done before!
From their website “Abbey 3D features an internal scaled replica of Westminster Abbey in a way which enables users to feel as if they are visiting the church where ever they happen to live or happen to be. It uses the latest laser scanning technology combined with 3D modelling to create a super realistic version of the Abbey, a technique commonly used in film production but rarely applied to mobile devices.
The App opens at the Great West Door, the spot where Kate Middleton will start her walk down the aisle with her father to the High Altar. Flashing up along the way are “hotspots” of information about key areas of the Abbey, such as the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, and their significance on the day of the wedding, it also includes archive pictures and potted biographies on key participants at the Royal Wedding.
What a completely fantastic idea, priced at £2.99 the App will soon be available in stores and proceeds will go towards Kate and Will’s charitable fund and the Westminster Abbey foundation.
