So far, the most innovative way to visit a museum is to let the audience have a virtual tour in the room. Now, a new technological progress, the image will be digitized into a billion pixel format, the resolution is 100 to 1000 times of the ordinary digital camera, this is a further development. At the forefront of this technology, madpixel, a Spanish company, has developed technologies that help change the audience experience and the business model of museums. Its main ally is rob, an intelligent robot designed by the company, which, as shown in this news video, digitizes art and its space, and allows viewers to visit the art center with anyone.

In this report, we show the clip of the first live tour organized by the company, visiting the Maurice Museum in the Hague, the Netherlands, where the famous Miss pearl Johannes Vermeer is located. During the visit, visitors can see these works through Rob’s “super eyes”, capture every detail of the paintings, scan the works with infrared rays, and even see the original sketches of the paintings.
