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.

    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.

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.

    Cret Exhibition Captures Vibrations Of The City
    Editor's note: Architectural drawing is a dying art. Before the digital revolution gave birth to drafting software, renderings of buildings, bridges, barrel vaults, and bell towers were meticulously illustrated by hand. And although most of the technical work done for architectural and engineering firms in the past left no room for emotion or expression, a human touch, and a physical object, remained.
