A viking museum hologram tour



The viking museum, “Gurisenteret” in Norway wanted to create a guided tour with holograms. Visitors can now experience viking holograms and historical objects in 3D that have been unavailable to the public until now.




3D objects in augmented reality

Different historical objects are included in the guided hologram tour. In this way museum visitors can see and interact with historical important objects, found on the Island, but either currently at other museums or still buried underground. The objects are photogrammetry scanned by NIKU and optimized for mobile by HoloCap.



Volumetric video in Adobe After Effects

The holograms are “ghosts” from the past and a ghostly glow effect was added to the volumetric video in Adobe After Effects
