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.

    3 Big Reasons "Wish-cycling" Is Always a Bad Idea - Earth911.com
    We've all been there. You're standing in front of the recycling bin with something in your hand - perhaps a beverage cap, crinkly cellophane wrapping, the tinfoil lid from a sour cream container or a pizza box. You're not entirely sure whether you can recycle it, but you think you can.

    8 over-the-top Thanksgiving lunches in Philly
    The nation's biggest feasting holiday is almost here, but if you can't wait to get your fix, you don't have to settle for the same old Wawa Gobbler. We already told you about the absurdly layered creation at Jake's Sandwich Board - the famous Turducken there was even recently featured on ABC's The Chew - but several other Philly restaurants and shops also have you covered.
