IBM Created A Virtual Recreation Of The Forbidden City

Posted: October 28, 2008 in Technology

This is a replica in three dimenssions of the Forbidden City in Beijing.  For more than three years, IBM designers built it pixel to pixel.  All the palaces and patios. You can addopt a charactor and explore all the corners of the Forbidden City. You can also talk to other virtual visitors and/or particiapte in the activities. Of course you need to download the software (it takes about 20 minutes), but try it, it’s fun! Of course this doesn’t replace a real visit to Beijing, but for those who can’t afford to go to there, it is an alternative. Click here to visit the Forbidden City
