Virtex (which is an abbreviation of VIRTual EXhibition) is a methodology to do interactive storytelling based upon an interactive replica of a museum object or monument. The replica, which can have a different scale than the original, is made by 3D printing and contains electronics to make a wired or wireless connection to a computer, that shows the 3D model of the object, if possible with additional information such as colouration or digital restoration, and stories that are triggered by touching the interactive zones of the replica.
The Virtex implementation for museum objects contains a wireless orientation sensor that allows to visualise the digital replica, moving in the same way as the physical replica, with additional information such as the real appearance of the object or reconstructed colouration or digital restoration.
The Virtex Light implementation for monuments does not contain an orientation sensor.
