VR & AR for Cultural Heritage in Museums by Jeffrey Jacobson

For centuries, museums have provided as much context as possible for their historical artifacts. Physical devices are helpful, like writing a good plaque, grouping the objects, building visual dioramas, and later, audio tours have become popular. Augmented Reality (AR) is a way to provide an interactive and radically more informative context for the physical objects. With AR we can see "inside" them, see them situated in recreations of their cultural context, and click-though to the entire internet's worth of information about it. Similarly, Virtual Reality (VR) can re-create lost or distant cultural environments, which we can interact with. Dr. Jacobson will survey what is possible and briefly introduce his own work in this area.

Each one of the talks, above will be accompanied by a demonstration.
