The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) presents ‘Enter the room’ – an augmented reality (AR) app available now for iPhone 6s and above on the App Store:


War is back in cities and civilians are in the middle of it all.

In 2017, ICRC released I saw my city die, an in-depth report looking at the devastating impacts of today’s urbanizing battlefield. With ‘Enter the room’ we are using the latest in augmented reality tech to provide an even more intimate sense of what it actually feels like when war comes to your doorstep.

“We hope the story told through this immersive app will give people new insights into the realities of war”, said Peter Maurer, President of the ICRC. “It reminds us that urban warfare does actually destroy children’s bedrooms, their homes, and their lives.”
