Visitors may be able 'live' Caesar's day

High-definition glasses could take visitors to days of Caesar

(ANSA) - Rome, April 14 - Rome may introduce 3D "augmented reality" glasses for the Roman Forum that would give visitors the possibility of experiencing the ancient Roman ruins with new verisimilitude to the days of Caesar, Trajan and Nerva, Rome Mayor Ignazio Marino said Tuesday. Rome is contemplating experimentation with the 'immersive', high definition, virtual reality glasses designed by two young Roman engineers. The first applications for the glasses have been at rock concerts in Rome.
    "We are organizing a surprise for April 21 - Christmas in Rome," said Marino. City sources said that a feasibility test of the project is now being launched.
