The program was created by Australian start-up with the assistance of archaeologists from the Department of antiquities of Israel.

“I have the wonderful opportunity to work with groups at archaeological sites. Usually I always ask the tourists to use your imagination. We have to do to understand the past. With offer visitors the device is much easier – the experts have already handled for us with all available information. Usually we see all this, as it is now. And with these glasses I feel like we are swinging in the past and we can enjoy the original appearance of objects.”
