Implementation of the Virtual User Interface for Islamic Civilization – VUIIC- The Case of Sultan Qalaun-1285AD, Cairo, Egypt by Osama Elrawi

Virtual reconstruction, visualization, documentation and digital preservation of the Complex of sultan Qalawun. An AR /VR and MR representation can put historical heritage into a new context, in order to help users / virtual visits and navigations link history with present day life. AR/VR/MR technology allows comparing current environment with the past which can enhance both experience and understanding. Practice has shown that users prefer to interact with digital content over being just passive observers/viewers of a movie or pre-rendered installation. We have been exploring whether digital storytelling could also be implemented as interactive, and up to what amount of interactivity, without the user losing the context and thread of the story.
