Sadly, the people tasked with developing the World Trade Center site decided against rebuilding the Twin Towers, forever leaving a gap in the skyline that certainly can’t be replaced by a building even if it has a patriotic name and is 1776 feet tall. But since there’s no chance of replacing what was there IRL, the next best solution appears to be rising up by way of augmented reality.

The “110 Stories” project is the brainchild of Brian August and he’s now successfully raised the $25,000 he needed on KickStarter to fund the app that will virtually restore the iconic buildings when a user points an iPhone in their direction. It should be up and running by September and he hopes to raise additional funds to make an Android-based app as well.
