Virtual and Augmented Reality for Cultural Heritage Exhibitions
Traditional exhibitions provide limited possibilities of visualization and interaction between the visitors and the exhibits. During the past few years, virtual reality and augmented reality have emerged as areas of extreme interest for cultural heritage exhibitions. The cost of building suitable virtual and augmented reality systems has fallen considerably, thus fuelling this interest. In this paper an innovative interface that combines commercial components and international standards is used to visualize and interact with digital artifacts based on the above technologies.
