The Norwegian Museum of Cultural History will be implementing Augmented Reality in which virtual characters from the 17 century will be visualized in current surroundings. A real person will also interact with them as a tour guide. The overall experience will show how virtual and real actors can mix together. To watch the experience, visitors require "magic glasses". Obviously.

Implications - Technology is an integral part of daily life and many buyers consistently use the online world. Bringing the past back with virtual reality demonstrates how society is fascinated with the power of technology to learn about history. Companies should consider how the online world can be used to educate consumers in an interactive fashion, while at the same time remove viewers from the pressures of reality.
