Using cutting-edge technology for documenting cultural heritage, this project from the NVIDIA Joint-Lab on Mixed Reality at the University of Nottingham Ningbo China will showcase full virtual environments using virtual and augmented reality for mediating the past.
A combination of photogrammetry techniques and 3D reconstruction processes will bring Chinese heritage sites and ancient objects back to life, allowing visitors to visit entire sites from 800 years ago and handle a series of objects from hundreds to thousands of years ago.
