400th anniversary voyage
recreated for virtual reality
The project will create a virtual recreation of Mayflower which, when completed, will enable people to explore the decks of the ship as though they are actually on board.
The virtual recreation of the ship was undertaken using 3D modelling and advanced VR techniques. As part of a world-first Augmented Reality demonstration, the 3D ship was “resurrected” at the site of the actual wreck and, uniquely, visualised using the video feed from a small quadcopter.
Footage gathered from drones was passed to the Modux art team, who worked to bring the vessel to life in 3D.
