Alqatt XR

The main contribution of Alqatt VR is the ability of a user to visit remote regions within the Arabian Peninsula and experience particular sites and the culture associated with them through immersive VR experiences. The first use-case is the region of Asir and the associated art of Alqatt Al-Asiri. Through interactive design, sound and animated images, users discover details about Alqatt art, such as its patterns and how the passage of time has changed the way it appears in the homes of Asir.
