About this project
We are proud and honored to introduce our LearnMore™ App – an incredible tool that brings ‘Augmented Reality’ to history and science education!
These are exciting times for technology and education! Learning is no longer limited to linear, text-based resources. Students are no longer restless and inattentive in classrooms that have no sensory stimulation! Technology has revolutionized how we interpret and process information! Our LearnMore™ App coupled with our interactive posters is riding the crest of the wave of the most innovative learning tools that are surfacing on the horizon!
Augmented reality taps into our senses of seeing, hearing and feeling. It connects those senses to powerful experiences that translate into a learning moment that today’s technology-hungry populace eagerly embraces.
With six different posters focused on science and history, there is something for everyone – whether it’s learning more about Thomas Edison's lightbulb, the inner-workings of a Model T Ford, the basics of human anatomy, the Wright Brothers historic airplane, the Constitution, or even the solar system! The LearnMore™ App is a window into depths that satisfy the most inquisitive scholar!
Edison's Lightbulb: Experience the history and science of the perfection of the incandescent electric light bulb. With the power of the LearnMore™ App, Thomas Edison and this historical moment in time comes to life right on a student's cell phone or tablet. This poster creates a full cinematic experience based on the history of Thomas Edison encompassed in a two-minute video. You can also interact with options on the poster and learn about the different components that make up a light bulb and their role in creating light.
History in Motion: An Augmented Reality Experience. Users are the drivers of this ride through history in a Ford Model T. In this interactive poster, you select and learn about the different systems and components that make up the Model T. Hop into a vintage model and take a scenic 360-degree virtual ride through the country side. Your understanding of this iconic vehicle will be revolutionized as you discover history in the making.
Flight School: Take to the sky with this educational, avionic adventure as you discover the history of how the Wright Brothers invented the airplane and learn the science of flight along with the fundamentals of the controls. Watch as a 3D model of the Wright Flyer emerges from the poster and witness the relationship of the yaw, pitch and roll to the movements of the aircraft. Explore the relationships of aircraft movements to the controls and instruments – all within this fun and educational poster!
Space Journey: This is a glimpse of your solar system like you have never seen it before, beautifully rendered in 3D from all angles of the sun, showcasing beautiful detail and correct positioning and alignment. Students can explore the Earth's solar system from an amazing first person perspective and learn about orbits, the sun, distances, gravitational behaviors and world changing scenarios. The LearnMore™ App will take them on a wild ride through the solar system while providing important educational messages.
Fathers of Invention: This poster is the platform for a journey through inventions of the founding fathers of the United States of America. Discover the stories of scientific and creative inspiration behind their inventions and discoveries. The interactive poster takes the viewer on an interactive tour of inventions from George Washington's 16 sided threshing barn, Thomas Jefferson's secret message sending "wheel cypher" and Ben Franklin's visionary invention the bifocals.
Human Anatomy: Peel away layers of the human body from the top layers of the skin all the way down to the bones. Students can explore internal organs while they learn about how these organs function and their role in keeping you alive. These fully animated, interactive video animations bring the poster to life as they explore the inner workings of the human body; the lungs expanding, the blood flowing, and the heart pumping. Students will be excited to explore, interact and learn about human anatomy simply by using the LearnMore™ App.
Help us inspire everyone to enjoy the thrill of learning with our science and history adventures! With the help of mobile devices and augmented reality, our videos, animations, and lessons come to life as truly memorable learning experiences!
We have options for everyone! For individuals or families interested in single topics (or all of them) to educators or museums that want to offer exciting new educational adventures.

Led by content producer Michael Hobbs, Revolution eMedia is a small team of multimedia and content producers. Our team members have worked together to produce educational and instructional content for all types of learners and mediums. We have been involved in immersive media like AR and VR for over three years now, and we know how to make learning exciting, how to encourage engagement; and how to spark imaginations.
Now, as we start our journey with LearnMore™ App, we aim to create engaging educational tools for next generation media implementing augmented reality and virtual reality. Our goal is to use augmented reality technology to make posters come to life in museums and classrooms and encourage education through interactive technology.

Ensuring that the content and experiences that these posters provide are accurate is very important to us. We continually consult with educators and subject-matter experts to verify that the information we are producing is correct.
Backers will also be invited to review demos and other content, such as videos and animations, in order to provide creative and important educational feedback for the project.
We are developing the app to run on the widest range of devices possible. In order to provide the best possible experience, some older devices may not work or could have a faulty experience.
- You must be running: iOS 8.3+ and Android 4.4.4+
- We support: Current generation Samsung, Apple, Sony and Nexus tablets.
Ensure your device has a forward facing camera and supports OpenGL ES 2.0. See your device manufacturer for more information.

Risks and challenges
We have produced much of the interactive content and have tested several demos of the augmented reality on mobile devices. The posters are already designed, ready to be printed and will be in your hands around August 2016. Our carefully-selected printer in the U.S. is ready to print so that we can get the products to you in a timely manner.
All we need to do is reach our backing goal. So the more you pledge, the closer we will be! Tweet it; Share it; Facebook it; Pin it; Yell from the roof tops; Email it; and Instagram it.
Other risks may include unlikely delays in shipping, but we will keep you updated in case that this occurs.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
