Project started out as an attempt to visualize heritage spaces in all its true glory. Be it relics, artifacts or entire monuments, the mission statement was to visualize these lost world treasures and bring them out into the world to notice and celebrate.
This was during the second wave of the COVID-19 Pandemic in India. Incentivized, Interactive and Personalized Experiences created specifically for visitors and tourists through location-based mobile applications, augmented reality, on-site interventions and other forms of media.
1. The aim of the project is to compose an engaging, gamified experience that boosts recall value and information retention, through virtual and digital interventions. Incorporating Architectural principles and Interaction
2. Design ideals into a contextually and culturally sensitive application of low-cost, high-impact technologies like Augmented Reality, Projection Mapping, QR Code Recognition, etc.
The palace is an intricate architectural marvel, with lots of ornamental detail that is difficult to digitalize. We developed mesh modeling techniques to minimize the model complexity without sacrificing architectural detail. It was also particularly difficult embedding guided tour features like audio tour tracks and points of interest in the holomap.
The Paintings, artifacts are 3D scanned and dropped into the proprietary AR app that helps in Visualizing the treasure in broad daylight, right in the palm of your hand.
So what can you use applications like dronah XR App for? The possibility of use cases is unlimited but here we provide a few use cases to stimulate your imagination!
