With in-depth interviews with the key industry figures from both cities, the materials will be gathered, documented and presented as an interactive interface with AR (augmented reality) technology at the exhibition at Hong Kong Heritage Museum. Visitors will use their smartphones to scan the provided AR codes posted at the museum defining a brand new museum experience for the visitors.
