Google Arts and Culture platform were launched in 2011. Using advanced technology, anyone can explore the exhibits of more than 1,200 museums from around the world and famous historical sites. The search giant’s new initiative takes a look back into the past by exploring the rock art in ancient caves.
Most of these caves of primitive people are accessible to visit, but not all people have the opportunity to travel around the world to explore them. In addition, some of the caves, such as Chauvet in France, are closed to the public. As a result, Google is launching a new initiative to explore both the caves and the rock art through virtual and augmented reality technologies.
Special software allows you to interact with 3D models of frescoes and other cave paintings. For example, in the above-mentioned cave Chauvet you can see 12 different sites in Augmented Reality. To start your journey, you need to download a special offer in Google Play or App Store.
