Printer-friendly versionSend by email

The Integrated Systems Laboratory (ISL) of the Institute of Informatics and Telecommunications of NCSR “Demokritos”, has submitted a 3D Digital Guide named iGuide KNOSSOS on the STEAM platform and is asking for audience support (positive vote on http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=720174192) in order to be Greenlit.

“Experience the past” – A journey to the Minoan Civilization through a 3D digital reconstruction of KNOSSOS Palace located at the Greek Island of Crete. iGuide is based on Sir Arthur John’s Evans work, a British archaeologist who, through research and excavations in the early 1900s, unearthed the colorful world of what he then named the Minoan Civilization.

VR and non-VR navigation, interactive features, pop-up info teasers, video animations, and other visual effects for comparing the “how it once was” with “how it is now”, leads to enhancing the user experience as a “virtual visitor”. iGuide KNOSSOS is the first fully digital reconstruction of the palace of KNOSSOS built in an immersive environment.
