Augmented Reality – WEHI AR

Augmented reality is an interactive experience adding layers of digital information such as videos, graphics and sound to our view of the real world.

Our 2020 Annual Report features images that come to life with augmented reality.

To experience this, open the 2020 Annual Report in your browser then follow the instructions below to install the WEHI AR app.

Unlocking the experience is easy

Step 1:
