Netherlands, November 7, 2016: Almost all of us have visited a museum at least once in our lifetime and also have been dead tired after scrutinizing all the artifacts that interest us. Well, what if we did not have to walk those long hallways and giant rooms to explore the relics? What if we could witness all of it without significant movement throughout the museum?

The Dutch National Museum of Antiquities in Leiden, Netherlands has accomplished it with the help of researchers at Delft University. The museum did not have enough room to exhibit all the relics it possesses.

To solve this problem, and make the museum more informative, the museum took help from researchers at Delft University. “Right now, 80% of the stuff that they have at the museum, they can not show and that’s a shame” a researcher at Deft University, Annalies Maltha said to Reuters.

The museum is now using HoloLens, a product from Microsoft to implement augmented reality and to create holograms of the exhibits they want to. The visitors can experience different artifacts and historic relics using these holograms. One such example is the virtual manifestation of an ancient Egyptian temple which was reconstructed inside the premises in 1971.

The researchers are also using HoloLens to scan every place inside out and then create a three-dimensional model and by using different softwares they can also add more features, interaction with pictures, presentations, and scaling or other transformation options to the models to make the experience more informative.

As augmented reality is being utilized in this case, it helps you feel the ancient aura of the relics and reconstructions but unlike virtual reality, it does not shut you off from the outside world. There are also possibilities of you interacting with the objects in the environment.
