Historical project. Virtual exploration of a French destroyed village during WW1.
This project main purpose was to provide a 3D mobile application to virtually explore a destroyed village.
The user has to move though the ruins of the destroyed village, the application uses the smartphone GPS, compass and gyroscope to display through le screen, a virtual representation of the village, like when it was alive.
3 routes, 3 thematic
The application allows you to select (and switch) between 3 thematic, with their individual point of interest, and their individual behavior:
- Village: these points of interest are mini-scene where you are inside specific buildings of the village, such as brewery, inn, washhouse,… You can use your smartphone to explore the building and discover some specific vintage tools.
- Biodiversity: focus on the fauna and flora of this particular region of France. Watch mini video clips, drawn in a comics style.
- War: explore the historical conflict of WW1 in the surroundings of the village (including Verdun battle).
