Seiko Epson is working with AsukaLab and the Ikeuchi Laboratory of Tokyo University for a virtual guide system demonsration at the Ishibutai Kofun, an ancient stone tomb located in Asukamura, Nara Prefecture.
Epson will provide 10 pairs of Moverio BT-200 smart glasses for use in a joint demonstration associated with this project. Moverio smart-glasses will be tested with an augmented reality application to allow interested visitors to use the Kofun Virtual Guide service to view 3D images depicting the construction of the Ishibutai Kofun. Visitors will easily be able to enjoy amazing stereoscopic, 360-degree panoramic computer-generated images overlaid on the real-world environment.
