SPIDERS Augmented Reality app complements the Australian Museum’s major new exhibition. The app uses Augmented Reality (AR) technology and your mobile phone to place scientifically accurate 3D spider models in the environment around you.

Watch the spiders come to life by scanning Spiders exhibition posters, outdoor markers and image tokens with the app! You can make them dance, snap a picture with them and keep the Peacock Spider as a pet.

Spiders that are featured in the app include:

- St Andrews Cross Spider
- Queensland Whistling Tarantula
- Wolf Spider
- Redback Spider
- Red headed Mouse Spider
- Peacock Spider

Needs to be some no-scanning spiders

I'm in Brisbane, and been to the spider exhibition and it was Awesome! I just wanted to let you know I think it should be changed so you don’t need to be in the museum, like if some one wanted to access it like me and loves spiders and there in another state or whatever they don’t have a chance. I have a SP2 Australian Tarantula and I would love to be able to access it thank you guys for making it I no you are probably not reading this but good job.
