    The Mediterranean Sea has a vast maritime heritage which exploitation is made difficult because of the many limitations imposed by the submerged environment. Archaeological diving tours, in fact, suffer from the impossibility to provide underwater an exhaustive explanation of the submerged remains. Furthermore, low visibility conditions, due to water turbidity and biological colonization, sometimes make very confusing for tourists to find their way around in the underwater archaeological site. Be they amateurs or professional, how can the divers have an exact idea of how the archaeological remains appeared in the past? Underwater Augmented Reality is for a really immersive dive! It was …

    One of the most valuable treasures of the Onassis Library is Charta (Map) of Greece, printed in Vienna in 1796-7 by Rigas Velestinlis, a revolutionary figure of the Greek Enlightenment. It depicts almost the whole of Southeast Europe and is widely considered as the most important example of Greek cartography that inspired the Greek Revolution for Independence in 1821, influencing also neighboring people in the Balkans. The Charta, besides the traditional depiction of a map of the Balkan Peninsula, includes an extensive array of symbols, figures, and pictures, whilst enriching points of this map with information, becoming a “multimedia” piece ahead of its time. The heroic life of Rigas …

    A huge number of museums in the world are dedicated to people who have made great contributions to humanity. Each exhibit in such museums is not accidental and is an illustration of one or another side of the owner's personality. Yet most visitors find it difficult to understand the value and significance of the items on exhibition. We asked ourselves the question - what if things could talk? What would they say about their owners? What would it even look like? Augmented reality technology has helped answer these questions. In 2020, an augmented reality guide was implemented at the Cinema Museum in the room of the legendary Soviet film director Sergei Eisenstein, who played a key role …
