What AR and VR can do for you
03 December 2018 | Events
The development of information and communication technology during the past 40 years is characterised by continued technical evolution, with these developments raising the possibility of new applications and application areas.
By combining the advantages of established technologies with new approaches, and adapting those criteria to the different user needs, existing applications with new ICT components and services can be extended.
Many Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR) based applications have been developed for cultural institutions that used for interactive entertainment, games, interactive storytelling, visual and sound art installations as well as interactive opera, architecture or digital archives. To present content only in the form of artefacts with texts, films and stories does no longer match the requirements of the audience: Many users do not like to consume, they want to participate, communicate and interact with the exhibition and the staff behind the exhibition. AR, VR and new interaction methods can help solve this problem.
The presentation discusses different approaches to create AR and VR applications as well as best practice examples, like the AR cookbook of the Corona Guest Farm.
The talk starts at 19:30.
