Casual Friday: A Tour of Westminster Abbey

Westminster Abbey

Didn't get an invitation to hang out at Westminster Abbey today? Never fear. There's an app for that, of course. With Abbey 3D, you can tour the Abbey right from your smart phone. The app features an internal scaled replica of Westminster Abbey and includes several historical facts and figures about the Abbey along the way. The app "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." It's a bit pricey at $4.99, but proceeds from sales will be split equally between the Prince William and Miss Catherine Middleton Charitable Gift Fund and Westminster Abbey Foundation, which is responsible for the care and upkeep of the Abbey. It's available for Android and iPhone. You can view a demo below and check out the procession route in 3D on Google Earth. Happy Friday, y'all!
