The following is a selection of experiences available online. The virtual reality (VR) options place you in a computer-generated virtual environment that can be accessed with a VR headset, controllers, and sensors.
The 360° experiences are the result of cameras capable of taking 360° photos/videos of surroundings that can be viewed on most web browsers on laptops, desktops, phones, tablets, and other smart devices.
The augmented reality (AR) options take on the user's view of the real world and superimposes digital information and/or data on top of it. Users will need to download the dedicated application to a smartphone or tablet.
