Religion in the virtual world

09/05/2018 FBK's ICT and Humanities Centers work in synergy on the implications of an app that can virtualize objects and places of worship.

“RELIGION TO GO” brings to mind today’s “take away” trends. And this is precisely what happens to objects and religious places when they are used with the REPLICATE tool. The application, created at theFBK-ICT TEV Unit, allows users to obtain a digital 3D copy of any object, and can be shared “to go” on the network, through a viewer, or even experienced in the form of virtual reality.
