You can't do that in "real" worlds!


here is an interesting application for virtual reality I came across in a Wired article... an art gallery of paintings that have all been lost or stolen (you can see an explanatory video on Vimeo. Interesting idea that works remarkably well wearing an Occulus Rift. Of course, you need high resolution images for it to work well, but I could imagine, for example, another gallery of lost heritage monuments, etc. Gives a whole new twist to the idea of conserving the past for tomorrow!

The virtual space was designed to look like a traditional museum.
