As part of “Terracotta Warriors of The First Emperor,” on view through March 4, 2018, The Franklin Institute has developed a special Augmented Reality experience for the exhibition. http://bit.ly/2xdSuKy Download our Terracotta Warriors AR app today for iPhone or Android to experience this wonder of archaeology in a whole new way: http://bit.ly/tcwar

    A better life through augmented reality? Really!
    What do the Franklin Institute, Ikea North America Services, QVC, and the Fringe Fest have in common? They're betting on augmented reality - a commingling of the real world we live in with computer-generated imagery that makes the scene better (or weirder) for consumers.

New research suggests that winemaking may have gotten its start at least eight thousand years ago. http://n.pr/2jqIyba

    Georgian Jars Hold 8,000-Year-Old Winemaking Clues
    Anthropologist Patrick McGovern, at the University of Pennsylvania, has been pursuing the origins of wine for many years, and that search took him to the mountainous areas east of the Black Sea, in what is today Georgia, Armenia, and Iran. "Everything pointed to that region as the area to investigate," he says.
