Virtual Reality

The 3D datasets generated from our documentation workflow can be incorporated directly into Virtual Reality platforms. Working closely with our partners at PlayMagic ltd, who are a Maltese based VR/Gaming company, we can provide a fully immersive experience of cultural heritage sites.

We envisage that this will be particularly useful when a site is inaccessible to the public, or when a site is so delicate that public access would be detrimental to its integrity. Applied in this scenario, VR would offer the public an engaging experience of the site in a non-invasive fashion.

Virtual Reality is a very powerful tool in terms of how we as a society engage with, and learn from our shared global heritage. There are times when a site is too environmentally fragile or inaccessible to allow public access. It is within this context that VR can offer an alternative.
Equinox offers a complete solution, we document the site, generate the 3D content, combine it with VR technology and present. For exhibition purposes we also provide the VR equipment!
