Augmented Reality Projects & QR Codes

People carry smartphones around with them all times and through Augmented Reality applications will come to rely more and more on these small devices for useful information wherever they are. No other technology is better suited than Augmented Reality and QR Codes to display easy to access, location sensitive messages to users.


The combination of indoor navigation, image and QR code recognition is great for getting information on objects inside a museum or art gallery. For example, scanning a painting in an art gallery gives instant access to the painter’s information or scanning a QR code placed next to an artefact or any other object can trigger access to a multimedia presentation, movie, website or other related information, depending on the data sources available.

2D / 3D Graphics & Animation

 

3D technology has become increasingly important in the conservation, preservation, and interpretation of our cultural heritage. Thanks to 3D modeling and animation technology scientists, students or museum visitors can access computer reconstructions of historical objects that would normally be inaccessible, due to location or fragile condition. Digital models also provide the possibility of seeing artefacts that no longer exist at all, or of viewing the how the artefacts would have appeared at different times in history.

Reconstructions of archaeological excavation sites or historical architecture also emerged as a powerful tool to communicate archaeological features and cultural knowledge, not only to experts, but also to broad audiences of exhibitions or museums. By giving visitors a near firsthand experience of visiting historical buildings, we can inspire and interest people about  the past.
