Fun Link Friday: Interactive digital views of the Edo period

Although having digital views of any view you wish has long been a staple in science fiction film, that day is pretty much already upon us! Recently the Atmoph Window company released information on their high definition window displays, which bring to life a variety of views and their related audio as a part of smart display technology.

These windows include more than 1,000 views of the world (and can even be linked to show you your room when you’re away??), but what I find really interesting is that one view is of early modern Japan!

The company got footage from Toei Studio Park, an area of Kyoto managed by Toei Studios Kyoto, which is responsible for filming a number of historical drama series. I suppose this makes more sense than making a totally computer-generated site, or going back in time. 😉
