Unfortunately, the time-traveling technology featured in the television show 'Terra Nova' is fictional, but these mall visitors were lucky enough to get a blast from the past thanks to the National Geographic Augmented Reality PR stunt. It brought to life some extraordinary sights including a Tyrannosaurus Rex and the historic moon walk.

Created in collaboration with Appshaker, the National Geographic Augmented Reality stunt is currently touring different shopping centers in Hungary. Made up of a huge digital screen and high-powered camera that is placed in front of an AR marker on the ground, people see these mind-boggling prehistoric projections right before their very eyes. They can even 'interact' with these projections, though nothing is actually in front of them.
