The National Museum of Singapore is adopting the use of virtual and augmented reality for their newest Tango-enabled Architectural Tours, where visitors will be able to explore how the building has evolved over the past 130 years, and to virtually view artefacts that were once on display in the museum.
Tango, a technology platform created by Google, is a set of sensors and computer vision software that enables smartphone augmented reality. Tour participants will be provided with Tango-enabled mobile devices that will complement their experiences on the hour-long tour.
Using indoor mapping, virtual reality and augmented reality technology, visitors will be guided along six points of interests. Highlights include a 3D replica of the building, a virtual reconstruction of the iconic 90-feet-high dome rotunda at the main entrance and an augmented reality view of the museum’s iconic Indian Fin Whale skeleton.
