HD glasses could take visitors in Rome back to days of Caesar

Roman Forums may be explored through the high definition technology

According to ANSA, Rome's local government is working on a project to introduce 3D "augmented reality" glasses for the Imperial Forum, giving visitors the possibility of experiencing the ancient Roman ruins from the days of Caesar, Trajan and Nerva.

Rome is planning to experiment the 'immersive', high definition, virtual reality glasses designed by two young Roman engineers. The first applications for the glasses have been at rock concerts in Rome. As Mayor Marino said, this is going to be a surprise for April 21 when Rome will celebrate its birthday.
