The Liangzhu Museum located in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province, recently introduced the world's first smart AR guiding glasses, allowing visitors to learn about the Liangzhu civilization in an interactive way through the aid of modern technology.
Visually, its size is about the same as the regular sunglasses. What makes it distinctive from the normal types are the built-in AR intelligent applications, featuring the first-person perspective, smooth man-machine interaction and wearable technology.
Wearing the glasses allows for visitors to see the symbols, totems and other cultural elements surrounding the historical relics in the exhibition. Simultaneously, exclusive audio narration for specific cultural relics will ring in visitors ears. The vivid visit incorporates audio and visual experiences to provide tourists with a more intuitive understanding of the Liangzhu civilization 5,000 years ago.
As an exchange window of the Liangzhu civilization, this museum is exhibiting over 600 pieces of jade, stone tools, pottery and Lacquers and wood artifacts.
Zhou Liming, the curator of the Liangzhu Museum, said, “In order to adapt to the idea of long-term use of world heritage and meet the diversified cultural needs of the public, our museum is dedicated to the popularization of the Liangzhu civilization among the public with the help of IT technology.”
