In collaboration with Assemblr, Bank Indonesia (BI) released AR Rupiahβ€”an augmented reality (AR) based mobile game application on 15 November 2021. As BI's pioneer AR project, Assemblr has become the trusted partner to create and develop the whole app.

Align with their main theme, which is Rupiah Wonderful Indonesia, AR Rupiah encourages Indonesians to understand the important information of Rupiah bills, from its philosophy of design to the meaning behind each bill.

"The initiator was actually the Governor of BI himself, and the concept was developed further by Departemen Pengelolaan Uang (Department of Money Management). They have this mission that educating people about Rupiah bills can be blended with fun technology, too."

To start playing, users need to prepare the TE 2016 edition of Rp5,000, Rp10,000, Rp50,000, and the Rp75,000 (Uang Peringatan Kemerdekaan 75 Tahun RI) bills. Make sure that the conditions are not damaged, torn, stained, or worn out.

Afterward, users only need to scan the bills with AR Rupiah, which then will bring four locations in Indonesia contained in each bill into their own surroundings: Bromo Mountain, Wakatobi National Park, Komodo National Park, and Indonesia in the year 2045.

Each of the locations also contains information about the objects of the Rupiah bills, such as heroes, plants, animals, and culture from Indonesia.

Bringing the concept of a treasure hunt into the game, the users will also be challenged to open treasure chests, answer the trivia quiz, and find several mysterious items to collect points and achievements.
