This has to be one of the better attempts at bringing a real-world location into VR that we’ve seen in recent months.
Developed by Experius VR, Nefertari: Journey to Eternity, uses digital scanning to virtually recreate the Egyptian tomb of Queen Nefertari on the HTC Vive. You descend into the tomb to explore its many paintings, which have been captured in crisp, high-resolution textures that really make you feel like you’re there.
As you explore certain paintings will be highlighted to make sure you don’t miss them. It’s only a short experience but a great game of what VR is going to be able to do for education and virtual tourism in the years to come. Also it calls itself a ‘Tombscale’ VR experience which is just about the best pun ever.
The experience is free to download, so don’t miss out on it.
