Visitors experiencing XR virtual reality service 

XR virtual reality experience service is a form of augmented virtual reality, using Nreal Glass (XR) and AR Photo Kiosk service, developed from the VR virtual reality service “Finding the Lost Palace” - a VR service was previously implemented in the Imperial Citadel by Hue Monuments Conservation Center and IV COM Joint Stock Company.

Visitors wearing XR glasses can experience XR content that recognizes objects at specific locations during their tour of the Imperial Citadel on the basis of a personal virtual server, listens to voiceovers and sees images that recreate the history of the royal palace.

With the AR Photo Kiosk service, the device is placed in the VR Center and captured in AR form. This is a type of photography service that takes the image of Hue Imperial Citadel to be the background, combined with historical characters or insert effects, emoticons, then printed into photos or cards.

The convenience of the “e-ticket system” and the vivid visualization of the “XR virtual reality experience” promise to be new attractions for visitors to Hue heritage.
