We’re getting closer to a world where you can ask: why go to a museum when it can come to you? This summer, the Getty Museum used Augmented Reality (AR) technology to showcase one of the most complex objects in its collection – The Augsburg Display Cabinet (or Kabinettschrank) built around 1630. As shown above, the AR technology lets remote users view art in 3D, using just their web cam and a piece of paper to control the experience. You can watch the demo above, or better yet, test drive the whole experience with the instructions found here.
