Timescope is a tourist telescope with a twist: Viewers that look into it can use a button to choose whether to view the current happenings in front of the telescope or scenes from a different time. The images are superimposed so that the direction the user looks at is always correct, no matter in which direction the timescope is pointing: The real image fades into the virtual image and back without a change in perspective. It can be used in a wide variety of settings, for instance at tourist sites to enable visitors to look at the past of the sites or at building sites to show past use of the site and the future building. timescope uses libavg internally for the visualization, the interface to the internal camera and the other hardware components.

timescope is a product development of the ART+COM AG.
