Our new work is a unique AR-telescope for the modern museum complex "Kulikovo Field". The telescope allows to see a reliable reconstruction of the Kulikovo battle on a real field. With pride we can say that before us no one has developed similar projects in Russia!
The most modern equipment for the AR-telescope was used. The telescope construction (manufactured by Arena Lab on request of Spider Group agency) is used to view the panorama of the field. Inside, there is a Virtual Reality helmet which superpose a 3D battle movie on the image of the real terrain. Visiting the field, you are immersed in ancient times and see the famous battle between the Russian regiments and the army of the Golden Horde: the maneuvers of cavalry, ambushes and retreats.
The content is created on Unity 3D and is tied to the real space: the cavalry is pulled out from behind the hill, the warriors hide behind the hillocks. For the movie we have drawn about two thousand figures. The battle is recreated in full accordance with the historical reality - costumes, weapons, details exactly the same as in the days of the battle with the Mongol-Tatar army. Everything looks very realistic.
The AR-telescope is integrated with the ticket system of the museum. The design of the telescope can be used in all weather conditions and it is ideal for open-air museums.
Such telescopes with Augmented Reality are suitable not only for museums. AR-telescopes can be used by developers to demonstrate real estate, by travel agencies for familiarization tours. P>
