Seattleites impatient to see what the University of Washington’s new $110 million computer science building will look like can get a high-tech preview, thanks to Marc Kinsman of Mortenson Construction. He has developed an app that allows users to see the planned building through their smartphones, much like the popular augmented reality game Pokémon Go.
To see what UW has in store for the CSE2 facility, head over to the construction site and pull up the Mortenson AR/VR app. Point your device at signs posted along the fencing on Snohomish Lane and the building should come into focus. There is also an AR viewing area on the sixth-floor patio of the existing UW computer science building.
