Virtual reality (VR); Virtual heritage

In this paper, we present a digital heritage project incorporating novel interaction techniques in an immersive virtual heritage application. Virtual Reality (VR) technology enables us to digitally recreate immersive and interactive cultural heritage sites that no longer exist or are inaccessible. It is an excellent educational tool providing for a "hands-on" application suitable for a wide range of audiences. Here we present the development and implementation of the virtual heritage application with early results and future work and specifically focus on the two interaction techniques -- the Virtual Tour Guide and the Chinese calligraphy brush.
