Hermes Virtual Tour – Surfing in the past through Augmented Reality

Hermes Virtual Tour is an innovative app that provides an immersive experience in world artistic heritage through the Augmented Reality. Using advanced tracking and location data, the Hermes Virtual Tour recognizes and reconstructs in a surprisingly faithful detail, the monuments selected, returning them to their former glory. Users may then navigate an augmented 3D environment mixed with the real world, discovering every detail, just as if they’d entered a time machine.

The use of Augmented Reality is the perfect way to show how any good arts was in any location by simply pointing your smartphone. The user's perspective when he is in place is increased enormously arousing the wow effect and smart features are available in an easy engaging, immersive and interactive way.

Hermes Virtual Tour is a new way to learn about history and view significant monuments. It’s an multi-language learning tool, innovative and fun, and allows you to listen to news and anecdotes while strolling among the monuments, both on site, or in the comfort of your own home via “remote mode”.
