Historium Virtual Reality Lab


Historium Virtual RealityWith the start of a Virtual Reality Laboratorium, Historium wants to involve her visitors in the creation of this innovative project. The aim is to gather feedback, to examine in which way Virtual Reality could be introduced as a permanent part of the Historium visitor attraction. From 1/04/2015 until 31/05/2015, visitors of Historium have the opportunity to try Historium’s own Virtual Reality experience.

Historium Virtual Reality 2 The first of its kind in Belgium… and free for Historium visitors!
It’s the first Virtual Reality experience in Belgium where a virtual world was created that is historically accurate and where physical effects and integrated audio in Flemish, French or English amplifies the experience. Visitors put on a headset and a device with incorporated screen (the VR glasses). With these devices visitors not only see images on a screen; they are inside the virtual world. Visitors can move their head to see the the virtual world from different angles. This way, visitors can see medieval buildings and places that were reconstructed through CGI (computer-generated imagery), created in Realtime 3D by the interactive studio Sevenedge. The famous Sint-Donaas church and the Waterhalle (both demolished in the 18th century) were recreated this way.

The experience lasts around 10 minutes. After the experience, visitors are requested to fill in a short survey.

The virtual reality experience is made by interactive media studio Sevenedge. You can download the first chapter for free at the Oculus Share page.

Robbert As some of you may know, I have been suffering from the aftermath of a traffic accident, a severe case of COVID-19, and a transient ischemic attack (TIA). These events have taken a toll on my physical and mental well-being, and I can no longer keep up with the demands of running a VR website and channel. I want to thank you all for your support and feedback over the years. You have been an amazing community and I have enjoyed sharing my passion for VR and gaming with you. I hope you will continue to enjoy VR and explore its possibilities. I will leave the website and channel online for now, so you can still access the content I have created. However, I will not be posting any new blogs, videos, or news. I hope you understand and respect my choice.
