History comes to life in this new virtual reality (VR) experience from the Historium in Brugge (Bruges) , Belgium. In this Virtual Reality Lab demo created by Sevenedge Interactive Media, users can experience a highly detailed representation and explore a virtual world based on the medieval city.
A first for the country, the project is part of a two month initial test to gather feedback on whether or not a more permanent virtual reality addition could be made to the museum. Including long lost buildings and features, it gives a whole new insight to visitors on what Brugge used to look like long ago.
Supported by the Oculus Rift DK2 head-mounted display (HMD), the first ‘chapter’ of the experience is being made available on Oculus VR Share, visitors to the museum can experience the Virtual Reality Lab in full. You can see a ‘Making Of’ video for the experience below to give you a taste of what it entails.
