WASHINGTON – The White House unveiled a new app Thursday that allows anyone with a smartphone and a dollar bill to take an augmented reality tour of the White House.
The app, appropriately called 1600, is available on iOS and Android operating systems. Once users open the app and point their camera at a dollar bill, they will see a 3-D, interactive tour of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue unfold. The tour is narrated by White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest.
During the tour, users will experience a year at the White House, from state dinners to the Easter Egg Roll and the landing of Marine One.
The 1600 app is a collaboration between the White House Historical Association and Nexus Studios.
