Just beneath the surface of the Johns Hopkins Medicine campus hides a rich history that spans the 125 years since our founding. By using a mobile augmented reality (AR) application, hidden video, audio archives, and 3-D experiences, stories and discoveries that helped shape our institution spring to life. Want to learn about our founders and their revolutionary new idea for medical education? Curious about the portrait you pass by every day? Enjoy stories in augmented reality as you follow along a scavenger hunt of pictures, paintings and displays throughout the campus.
Watch as photos of our founders come to life, listen to the scientists behind world changing medical discoveries or take an immersive trip through our medical archives. Be the first to capture all of the AR experiences on our scavenger hunt and share your photos and videos using #JohnsHopkinsAR.
