Augmented Reality: Bringing Sikh artefacts to life

Augmented reality SMI 3dtaran

Augmented reality blurs the line between reality and virtual objects. This new technology allows us to view objects in a new light and can help individuals understand Sikh heritage in a virtual way.

A prototype showing how augmented reality technology could be used to allow young people to engage with and experience historic artifacts in a fun way.

These could be artifacts that have either long since been lost, are inaccessible or too valuable or dangerous to give to a child. This prototype shows an old sword, shield, chakkar (quoit) and a dome from harimandir sahib.

Augmented reality allows children to manipulate and observe objects on a marker while looking at their own mirror reflection on a screen in front of them.

The Sikh Museum Initiative is working on a number projects with Taran3d where augmented reality can be used to preserve Sikh heritage.
