Developments in communications technology are one of the most important drivers of culture and heritage. Improvements in the way in which we pass on knowledge and memories from generation to generation have had a major impact on the way in which we perceive the past, act in the present and shape the future. The major civilisations of the world and the ubiquity of languages can be traced back to leadership and innovation in communications technologies. Roman Roads, the printing press, canals, railways, photography, telegraphy, telephony, radio, cinema, television and the internet have all represented quantum leaps in the democratisation of communication.
With these developments, citizens have become increasingly empowered and influenced by information about the past and the experiences of other humans throughout history. We learn about our culture, heritage and religion through what we hear, read and see and this shapes our memories and perceptions of the past and our vision for the future. This article reflects on the impact of technologies like 360 degree cameras and virtual/augmented reality on culture and heritage.
