Here's how the virtual Alma Mater works. The target poster of the Alma Mater is attached to the real Alma Mater pedestal. The app on the iPhone or iPad recognizes the poster, then displays on the device a 3-D image of Alma Mater. A graduate walks up & stands next to the pedestal. On the device it looks like he or she is standing next to the statue. In the image, the statue will appear bronze, its original color.
