MOSCOW, RUSSIA – History buffs who have wondered about witnessing great moments in time are one step closer thanks to Toronto-based mobile content developer AWE, that used iPi Motion Capture, the leading markerless motion capture solution developed by iPi Soft, to create a one-of-a-kind virtual reality experience at the Fort York National Historic Site in Toronto. Using Google Cardboard, visitors to the nine-acre location will be able to experience key battle scenes, military fortifications and the significant role that Fort York has played in the country’s history in a simulated, immersive 3-D environment.

“Fort York is the largest historic site in Toronto and they wanted to create a dramatic visitor experience that spanned across the entire site, both indoors and out,” explains Srinivas Krishna, AWE’s CEO and the Director of the project (produced through Krishna’s production company Divani Films). “We created content that, when viewed on a mobile phone using Google Cardboard, immerses visitors inside a 360-degree environment that recreates historical events from different eras that occurred right where visitors are standing. It’s a fun and powerful experience.”
