“Bring your experiences online”

Experiences made for mobile devices, can be easily transported for online use combined with an, easy to build, 360° virtual space. The Floor Plan Editor enables museum experts to create virtual representations of their cultural heritage sites by organising 360° photographs through a web environment. These virtual spaces are viewable through the EMOTIVE’s Web Experiencing System along with a storytelling experience originally made to be used on-site, bringing the same experience off-site.

“Create immersive virtual experiences”

Off-site experiences can be brought to the next level with our Mixed Reality Plugin for Unity. Utilising advanced Image Based Rendering (IBR) techniques, developers are able to use typical 2D photography to turn a real space into a fully immersive virtual environment. Applications can vary from typical game-like settings built for 2D screens to Virtual/Augmented Reality experiences.

“Bring objects to life”

Emotional engagement with the past becomes much more intense when we are able to touch historical objects, see their colours and feel their texture. EMOTIVE provides tools that enable cultural heritage creators, or even visitors, to cast their own replicas of historical artefacts. Additionally, with the help of the EMOTIVE’s Mixed Reality Plugin for Unity, these object can be brought back to their original glory through the lenses of a Virtual Reality headset.
