- Translate different language just by scanning the language displayed on signs, menus, maps, etc
- Integrate “how to” information with tourists’ local languages pre-installed so they can understand how to take public transport or order food
- Scan local shops and areas to have reviews for restaurants pop up to help tourists make informed decisions for where to eat locally
Augmented reality in tourism is increasingly relevant as more people are able to access Wifi wherever they go. As a foreigner in another country, not understanding the local language and terms can be hard. However with the help of augmented reality apps, it can become much easier to book hotels, transport, activities, restaurants and translate on the spot. Augmented Reality in galleries can be used as an innovative tool to educate and entertain young children in existing exhibitions to help convey a story to them.
How can Augmented Reality be used for tourism and galleries?
Augmented reality in tourism is the ability to provide quick and easy navigation and translation services for tourists who want to have more independent travelling options. Through interactive maps, tourists will be able to have unique experiences suited to their interests and activities. Augmented reality in galleries can be used to engage visitors through tablets or direct from mobiles to have greater insights behind exhibitions and artworks.
