For All Mankind: Time Capsule, a New Augmented Reality Experience, Available Today in the App Store + Video Preview

"For All Mankind: Time Capsule," a new augmented reality experience based on the Apple TV+ space drama, is available today in the App Store

Available today, "For All Mankind: Time Capsule" is a new augmented reality (AR) experience that brings the world of the popular Apple TV+ series "For All Mankind" right into the homes of fans to uncover memories from the lives of Danny Stevens (Casey Johnson) and his parents, astronauts Gordo (Michael Dorman) and Tracy Stevens (Sarah Jones), in the decade between season one and season two. Through an interactive AR experience, fans join Danny as he examines keepsakes full of details about the off-screen lives of the characters and world of "For All Mankind,” where every object tells a story. 

“AR presents a new and exciting opportunity to bring the world of "For All Mankind" literally into the homes of the audience in a way that hasn’t been possible before,” said Ron Moore, creator and executive producer of "For All Mankind." “I was intrigued from the very beginning at the idea that we could use AR to immerse the audience in the alternate history aspect of the series, explaining and illustrating some of the historical events and technological advances that are implied in the show but which we never had a chance to fully present. Using this technology allows the audience to immerse themselves into the series by interacting with objects, people and media in an impactful and meaningful way that will bring them even closer to world we’ve created.”
