Roundhouse from bronze age, Samsung, British Museum blog.

The new technologies doesn’t stop. The endless possibilities that them offer are amazing.

Samsung  recruited Soluis Group Limited experts to create a virtual reality experience and launched a new device so called  Gear VR headset for lovers of virtual reality. This time the project, aimed to digital learning especially for young people, is based on a roundhouse of the bronze age, showing the Museum objects that are difficult to understand out of its context.

The virtual reality experience give to the visitors the opportunity to watch the 3D models of bronze age that the British Museum already has available, created by the MicroPasts project. MicroPasts is a groundbreaking project that creates open data sources of scanned objects, and crowd sources ‘photo-masking’ to create 3D versions of them.
