VR and AR technologies provide diversified experience in virtual spaces. On this week’s #Lab_Tube, we introduce the Ubiquitous Virtual Reality Laboratory at the Graduate School of Culture Technology, KAIST, which is led by professor Woo Woon-tack. The research team has suggested a new vision by applying VR and AR technologies to the smart tourism sector. And they have developed “K-Culture Time Machine,” which is a mobile AR platform that enables users to experience cultural heritages and tourist spots in virtual spaces without additional wearable devices.
When following the markers on the monitor or showing the images of a certain space to the mobile screen, the related cultural contents appear on the application. The research team will strive hard to develop AR platforms which can increase the convenience of users. We introduce the Ubiquitous Virtual Reality Laboratory of KAIST, which has led the future growth of VR and AR technologies that can enhance the abilities of humans.

The spread of the pandemic has hit the domestic tourism sector. And new travel trends have recently been in the spotlight. On this week’s #BizTech_Brunch, we talk about smart tourism that makes use of IT skills. Incheon has been designated as the first smart tourism city and a service that can provide customized traveling programs to visitors has been developed through AI survey. Also, curating robots which can provide tours and services in different languages have been introduced. And the robots will be applied to a broader range of areas by providing diversified services.
The Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism as well as the Korea Tourism Organization have promoted “2020 Tourism Plus TIPS” project and selected 6 startups in order to support their businesses in the field of tourism sector. We look into the ongoing development and outlook for the smart tourism industry.

This week on #Hash_Tech, we explore zero waste technologies which can create new items with recyclable materials. A domestic company has developed a reverse vending machine which can collect plastic bottles and cans and give back points that can be turned into cash by measuring the amount of inserted trash. The robot has implemented AI technologies, so it can automatically separate plastic bottles and cans. Also, it can sense the bottle caps and labels which can’t be recycled.
Moreover, there is a special place that creates artworks with discarded materials. Paper drone is made with waste paper, motors and circuits. Also, artworks are created with used coffee grounds. Eco-friendly methods have recently emerged as part of an effort to protect the Earth. And we explore the creation of new artworks that are made with recyclable materials.
