TH goes VR
In Steven Spielberg’s newly released film Ready Player One, things are going so badly in a near-future real world that humanity chooses to escape through virtual reality into a virtual universe, the Oasis.
Back here in 2018, earth is still a pretty wonderful place to be, but virtual and augmented reality are starting to open up exciting new possibilities, helping us discover the world in new ways. Thanks to virtual reality, you can explore new cities, visit cultural and heritage sites or experience incredible natural wonders, all without leaving your own home. Augmented reality enhances your experience of a place you already are. We all discovered AR during the Pokemon Go craze of 2016, but now it is helping to create interactive guides and displays in museums and galleries, or apps for language learning as well as games.
Here in Brussels, the AR/VR revolution is still in its infancy, but there are some exciting developments.
