Meet me at the Hippo ... but which one?
Come along on a mysterious journey of discovering all the Hidden Hippo's in Walsall using your eyes, our map and camera. You'll find not just only a growing collection of Hidden Hippos, but you'll discover information about their locations and the artists behind these amazing gems.
Rediscover Walsall like never before
The Hippo in Walsall has historically been a meeting point for people to gather and then go to somewhere else. The Hidden Hippo Trail is a twist on this behaviour and enables the public to have a new way to interact with their town.
The Trail combines the heritage of locations; artistic expression; and uses WebAR (Web Enabled Augmented Reality) technology to help people create a new relationship with the town, using the browsers on their smartphones, and without needing a dedicated app to be installed. WebAR offers the widest reach possible of all AR platforms.
