If there’s a will, there’s a whale.
Netherlanders (and anyone else) visiting the Rotterdam Zoo in Blijdorp were treated to an extra augmented reality experience as part of the new Virtual North Sea Reserve exhibit, developed by Idzard Kwadijk for Greenpeace NL.
Smartphone users just needed to download junaio, launch the Greenpeace Noordzeereservaat Blijdorp channel and point their cameras at the markers visible in the above picture.

Great work Idzard!
And enjoy your weekend everyone!
