I had the honour of delivering a talk on my research on the ‘Important Role Technology can play in Aiding the Preservation of Sikh Heritage Artefacts’. by giving examples of 3d printing, augmented reality and other technologies as well as covering the development of the World first online Sikh Museum.
I gave in depth information about how the latest developments in immersive technologies meant that we were no longer bound by traditional constraints and that we museums need to start thinking outside the box to appeal to the new digitally native population.
