New To VR: Take A Sneak Peek At Museum Piece The Greek Home

Bad news: The weekend is over and it is Monday again. Good news: That means that at the very least we get to look at new virtual reality (VR) expereinces again with our regular New To VR segment.

The Greek Home

We’re back to Oculus VR Share to start the week with an experience originally created for the Great North Museum in Newcastle, England. The project is The Greek Home and was made by developers Chronicles VR in partnership with Newcastle University. In this ‘sneak peak’ of the full experience, you can journey through a highly detailed recreation of a house from Ancient Greece, either taking the experience at your leisure or jumping to specific rooms.

With items from the museum scanned and recreated within the app, visitors can now see the real artifacts alongside how they looked originally and also see how they were actually used in the home.

The Greek HomeThe Greek Home requires an Oculus Rift DK1 or DK2 head-mounted display (HMD), the creators also note that it should be running 6.0 as opposed to 7.0.

Chronicles VR will be a participant at the upcoming VRTGO conference, VRFocus will be covering news from the event. Be sure to check back regularly for all the latest VR and Augmented Reality (AR) news.
