Rise Up Labs has launched a new augmented reality app “১৯৫২” to educate and inspire young generations to learn more about the heroic achievement and glory of our Language Movement.
The app is launched officially by ICT Minister, Zunaid Ahmed Palak in “Digital Innovation Fair-2017” at Bangladesh Shishu Academy. He welcomed the innovative idea of sharing the language movement knowledge through an app and mentioned, “4.27 Crore students from 1.70 Lakh schools will be benefited with this app. They will learn the history and heritage of our language movement.”
In the Language Movement of 1952, Salam, Barkat, Rafiq, Jabbar, and many others met their martyrdom and got injured in saving our language. UNESCO recognized this fateful event and declared 21st February as the International Mother Language Day on 17 November 1999. However, “১৯৫২” app is based on Augmented Reality (AR), where a computer-based graphic description and animation of our Language Movement in 1952 is encrypted when you point the camera on a 2 taka note.
“১৯৫২” app is a new and tactful way for playful kids, youngsters, and people of all ages to learn the history and cognition of International Mother Language Day. The app is available for free in Google Play Store.
