Travel app allows tourists in Thailand to view popular sites in 3D
A NEW smartphone application will help tourists in Thailand witness some of the country’s most popular sites in augmented and virtual reality.
According to Thai Tribune, See Thru Thailand – which will be launched in October – combines the tourist’s real-life view with virtual imagery and makes an image on their phone screen become a 2D or 3D object, floating above the actual screen surface, or a composite picture.
Through the app, tourists can create and compose photos that combine a real-life view with virtual and augmented reality to give them a new perspective on the site in front of them.
The app also makes information about destinations interactive, as well as allows users to create stories based on new locations, create new routes, and introduce new destinations.
Meanwhile, the Snap function is modeled after Snapchat and allows users to embellish their photos with animated Thai-style stickers.
