A viking museum hologram tour


The Viking museum, “Gurisenteret”, wanted a hologram guided tour. Visitors can now experience local Viking stories and historical objects unavailable to the public.


Before launching the holograms at the right geo locations on the island of Smøla, the holograms were tested in a city environment.

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 now at other museums, other locations or still buried underground. The objects are scanned/photogrammetry by NIKU and optimized for mobile by HoloCap.


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