ARtGlass is collaborating with Epson and with leaders of iconic cultural sites to provide augmented reality (AR) tours using smart glasses major historic sites, including George Washington’s Mount Vernon and James Monroe’s Highland.
Highland, the William & Mary-owned historic home of President James Monroe, today became the first U.S. site to launch the AR tours. Mount Vernon AR tours premiere this Spring. See a “behind-the-glasses” sample of the Highland tour below:
Visitors experiencing ARtGlass tours roam through augmented environments, inside and out, while 3D holograms, videos, pictures and text appear amidst real-world art, artifacts, architecture and landscapes — completely hands-free.
