A new promotional application from ArchAce called `Roztoky Castle Metamorphosis` provides the user an opportunity of 3-D visual immersion into the architectural aspects of the Roztoky castle in the Czech Republic. The castle, which has been recently reconstructed, went through a lot of architectural changes in history. The ArchAce`s original technology, `DreamView`, enables the user to see a three-dimensional visualization of five different historical periods of the castle`s architecture right in front of their eyes, and compare them with the current shape of the castle. On the timeline, the periods are represented by the following years: 1300, 1390, 1479, 1623 and 2012. Thanks to the DreamView technology, the user has the opportunity to physically gesture the tablet 360° to experience the castle`s changes through time. However, the user can also get an overall perspective of the historical transformation from a bird`s eye view.
Apart from the architectural visualization, which is the main content of the app, the product contains also a short movie which is to be seen as a part of an audio-visual exposition in the Museum of Central Bohemia in Roztoky, and as well an image gallery.
