City in Time tourism project launched

The Tourism Commission today launched the City in Time tourism project that lets locals and tourists travel through time and enjoy enriched visual and audio experiences with the use of their smartphones.   The project integrates augmented reality (AR), multimedia technologies, lively animations and special sound effects to present perfect combinations of historical panoramas and real-life surroundings.   Using their smartphones with the “City in Time” mobile app downloaded, locals and tourists can scan the AR markers installed at designated locations to experience 360-degree historical panoramas featuring heritage photos or illustrations by young Hong Kong artists.   The mobile app is also equipped with a selfie function that enables users to share their City in Time experience with friends on social media platforms.   They can also understand more about Hong Kong's history by browsing photos and information of the iconic spots with the mobile app.   Secretary for Commerce & Economic Development Edward Yau said: “City in Time” is a key project to promote cultural, creative and smart tourism.   “Despite the disruptions to travel as a result of the epidemic, we will continue to strengthen the appeal of Hong Kong’s attractions to prepare for the return of visitors by showcasing the city’s distinctive culture and history.”   The first phase of the project designated seven locations in Central and six in Tsim Sha Tsui, where AR markers are installed on redesigned visitor sign poles that complement local architecture elements and reflect the tastes of Hong Kong.   The Tourism Commission's mobile app is available for free download at the Apple App Store and Google Play. Locals and tourists can also embark on virtual journeys on the dedicated website.

Legal officer changes proposed

The Government has proposed to amend the law to allow legal officers of the Department of Justice to be appointed as a senior counsel.   At a media session after attending a Legislative Council meeting today, Secretary for Justice Teresa Cheng explained the rationale behind the Government's proposal.   She said: “Why is it that my colleagues in the Department of Justice - who by their qualifications are solicitors but are actually arguing very well and very efficiently with great eloquence and efficacy in the Court of Final Appeal - are not being recognised when they are actually even better than their counterparts? That has always been something that sometimes troubles me.   “And for that reason, I have always been thinking about how we are going to overcome that problem.   “Now, what really triggers my determination to take this further forward is when one of our Deputy Directors of Public Prosecutions, Vinci Lam, took silk on May 29.   “That really showed that the form
