Time travel? There is an app for that (United Kingdom)

 
A newly-released iPad app called Roman Ruins HD offers a new way to virtually explore the very best Roman sites in the world while providing a rich, visual tour of these  landmarks. Developed by Historvius, a leading online guide to historical places, the app allows people to explore and discover the length & breadth of the Roman Empire.

Integration of new technologies

Utilising the iPad’s gyroscope control fused with integrated Google Street View, Roman Ruins HD opens up a virtual window.  This trailblazing functionality combines with expert guides to more than 350 Roman sites and over 1500 high quality images to let people discover the very best remnants from the ancient world, including world famous landmarks to obscure hidden gems.
“This app brings a revolution to the way in which we explore our world,” said Mike Lewis, Historvius CEO.
“By pioneering a state-of-the-art interactive experience it allows us to travel virtually through a multitude of stunning Roman wonders, making it simple and practical to discover these fascinating ancient places. It sets a precedent that highlights how effectively technology is changing the very concept of travel and discovery as we know it.”
