Photogrammetry Photos AI AR / VR 3D / 4D modelling and reconstruction

We at Window to the Past are creating immersive historical experiences from vintage photos using Photogrammetry and Artificial Intelligence.

The Hungarian National Theater was demolished in 1965 therefore most people have heard about it but very few are left who have seen it.
We are creating a 3D reconstruction from the remaining photos about the building. The resulting model will be able to be viewed in Virtual Reality.

First version viewable in 3D:
