Apple's Education event in Chicago showcases some impressive uses of augmented reality, but the WWF Free Rivers Augmented Reality may just be the most impressive showing. Available for iOS, the app turns any flat surface into an ecosystem of wildlife, people and rivers. The detailed AR environment gives users the ability to move around and explore the space and enforces a sense of discovery. As users move through the WWF Free Rivers Augmented Reality, they will gain more information from the actual bodies of water rendered in AR as well as the animals and people who live along the rivers.

The interface of the AR experience is incredibly easy to navigate and enforces the idea that this is experience is particularly geared toward education. Elements of historical importance are weaved into the real-world locations in the AR and are aimed towards showing how rivers and bodies of water affect human history. Several habitats are included in the WWF Free Rivers Augmented Reality, including the African Savannah, the South Asian deltas and more.
