SupraScope comes to the emblematic viewpoint of Madrid
The Faro de Moncloa is one of the most spectacular observation decks in Spain, offering one of the best panoramic views of Madrid.
Its amazing sights will shortly be enhanced with a powerful and innovative augmented reality tool which manages to make the visit even more rewarding.
Presented at Fitur 2017, Faro Explorer is a customized version of SupraScope for the Faro de Moncloa at Madrid.
The augmented reality of the Faro Explorer identifies and explains the principle points of interest by simply pointing the SupraScope at the object and a floating message automatically appears providing relevant details. With a single gesture, the system provides more information such as photos of the building, and additional information, in both Spanish and English.
Madrid is a large city in which some points of interest are a number of kilometres from the Faro de Moncloa. The powerful zoom feature of the Faro Explorer enables one to see close up, and in detail, buildings a number of kilometres away. The Faro Explorer also incorporates a VIRTUAL TELESCOPE with 20 levels of zoom as well as an automatic focus and stabilizer, and permits a clear image even under foggy conditions or in low light levels.
From the Faro of the Moncloa, in spite of its physical height, it is not possible to see El Retiro or the Santiago Bernabeu, but by increasing the elevation using the VIRTUAL LIFT of the Faro Explorer, it is possible to view the whole of the city, including the neighbouring municipalities and the airport of Barajas. By increasing the virtual height to 20 kilometres, it is even possible to see the Balearic Islands or the Strait of Gibraltar.

“Desde el Faro no se ven el Retiro ni el Santiago Bernabéu, pero con Faroexplorer podemos subir virtualmente hasta 500 metros, desde donde se domina toda la ciudad, o hasta 20 kilómetros. Ahí ya se ve hasta la costa de Cádiz”
“El espacio de Madrid en Fitur dispondrá este año de un mirador virtual que simula el Faro de Moncloa. Gracias a una tablet, los visitantes podrán ver diferentes puntos de la ciudad, así como la sierra madrileña”
