Augmented Reality (AR) is a technology that superimposes digital content onto the physical world. It uses computer vision and other technologies to recognize objects in the real world and then overlay digital content on top of them. Museum AR is a type of augmented reality experience that allows visitors to explore and interact with museum exhibits in a totally new way. Using either a smartphone, Ipad, or AR glasses, visitors will be able to see elements within the museum come to life!
