CITY IN TIME brings Hong Kong’s extraordinary history back to life by transforming smartphones into magical ‘augmented reality’ windows contrasting 360-degree panoramic images of old Hong Kong with today’s surroundings.
CITY IN TIME can be experienced in person at various designated locations in Hong Kong, using a designated mobile app, or virtually on the CITY IN TIME website. The app allows you to use your smartphone camera to compare historical scenes with the present-day setting, while the web version compares the historic view with panoramic photographs of the current environment. The historical scenes are supplemented with lively animations, informative descriptions of major landmarks, and selfie and sharing functions for uploading to social media platforms.
CITY IN TIME can also be experienced remotely on the CITY IN TIME website, with the locations accessible virtually.
