VEHOLDER – AR blending & extending collections

  • collaboration between suitably matched museums and collections
    • to develop a 'Virtual Beholder' – or VEHOLDER (or 'Virtual Environment for Holdings & Online Digital Educational Repositories‘)
    • 'Augmented Knowledge' is provided by combining the physical objects and suitably-matched virtual, high-quality 3D items
    • visiting one of the paired institutions enables experience of its collection alongside correlated (virtual) specimens from another
