What a time to be alive!

The future is here! Time‚Äôs arrived for us to get up out of the chair, leave the keyboard behind, and start using our bodies to become actors in our own 3D virtual experience. Real virtuality is a project coordinated by Artanim, a Swiss foundation dedicated to the development and promotion of motion capture.¬†¬†They have managed to combine virtual reality (VR) technology (headset) with motion capture to provide a fully immersive environment for its users who are able to freely move within the physical space while virtually visiting a recreated environment. For example, inside¬†an ancient pharaoh‚Äôs tomb, users can see it as it really was back in the day and observe paintings and hieroglyphics on the wall – in all¬†their original splendour. The ‚Äėrealness‚Äô of the experienced is guaranteed. Exciting times, no doubt!
