Virtual Reality is at its peak, and while most developers aim to produce content based in the current era or in the future, there are few offerings when it comes to seeing the past.
A new startup is looking to enter a new vantage point for VR experiences by taking the viewer a 100 years in the past, right where they are standing.
With the power of OWL VR, for 90 second intervals, patrons will be able to see what the exact area they are in looked like over a 100 years ago. This is especially targeting popular tourist spots.
Mimicking the design of the once popular coin-operated binoculars, the standstill machine will operate like the machines in a similar manner. Albeit the viewer will show you more than just a zoomed in vantage point. With a price tag varying between $3 to $5, viewers will get as long as 90 second peeks into the past.
Viewers will be shown actual historic point-of-view scenes of their current location a 100 years ago. This is an especially inviting opportunity for history enthusiasts or tourists who are already enthusiastic about visiting historic landmarks of popular cities around the world, to actually put them in that perspective would help boost tourism significantly.
