The first ever VR experience has been launched on Sheffield Industrial Museums Trust’s Kelham Island Museum website – the open stores and Engineer’s workshop area of the museum have been meticulously scanned and recreated in a digital immersive space.
Allowing you to virtually walk around areas of the museum that are ordinarily inaccessible to visitors, it is intended to show more objects from the museum’s vast collection.
Requiring nothing more than a simple cardboard headset and modern smartphone, the downloadable experience is compatible with most Android and Apple phones and Samsung Gear VR headsets.
Whilst VR mode is a first for the museum, it’s not the only medium with which to explore the immersive experience. It can also be accessed in 2D mode on computer, laptop and smartphones.
