(In)Visible Princeton

highlighting lesser-known histories of Princeton using virtual reality web apps

Project team

“(In)Visible Princeton” is a series of themed historical walking tours of Princeton University’s campus. Tours are web-based and mobile friendly, and are accessible both on campus and off, making them available to the widest possible audience. Most tours consist of 10 to 15 stops, each of which includes interpretive text and supplemental media, such as images, audio, and video, to help explain the significance of each event, location, or person.

A series of unique sidewalk stickers corresponding to each of the individual stops on the tours in (In)Visible Princeton have been placed around campus. To activate a tour stop from its sticker, use your phone's camera to scan the QR code, or type into your browser the " bit.ly " short URL written out on the sticker. Tour-goers can elect to complete an entire walking tour at once, or to launch the content for individual stops as they come across the corresponding stickers. Look for them around campus!
