Ah, the romance of train travel ... even commuters feel it. There’s something oh so Alfred Hitchcock, Agatha Christie and Harry Potter about chugging down a track on the way to some wonderful — perhaps even mysterious — destination, your bag neatly tucked above you, a book in your lap, your journey ahead. The scenery outside passes by like a film in fast motion. The seats (comfortable on most global trains, even in second class) feel like super-plush movie theater lounge chairs. Each train car, like a narrow living room, boasts its own mood depending on fellow travelers and the ministrations of attentive staff.

For the first time ever, visitors and locals in Dublin, Ireland, can immerse themselves in a series of discovery trails through augmented reality. The Dublin Discovery Trails app, developed by Peel X and funded by Failté Ireland and Dublin City Council, brings Dublin’s Docklands to life in a new and unique way. Dublin’s Docklands served as one of the world’s largest docks in the 19th and 20th centuries, in which countless ships entered and exited the port every day. This hub of trade and industry meant many people worked the docklands and interacted with one another daily.
