VirTimePlace is a GPS enabled Virtual Reality Player which brings you inside a 3D virtual world of historical places (from buildings to complete cities) at their epoch of maximum interest, and gives you a chance to play and learn about them.
With this app you can travel, using your smartphone, tablet or VR glases, across complete ancient cities like: Classic Athens with its Acropolis and Agora, Roman Merida, Barcelona (Barcino), Cartagena (Carthago Nova), Cordoba, Segobriga or Conimbriga (at Coimbra), Medieval Aguilar de la Frontera or muslim Madinat al-zahra, as well as specific monuments like The great mosque of Cordoba at the tenth century, or the roman villa of Fuente Alamo at Puente Genil, etc. in an ever growing catalog.
VirTimePlace is not just another app with geolocated images or 2D or 360º videos. Unlike others, VirTimePlace gives you just real time 3D with total freedom of movement and an awesome game system called BoP (Buy or Play), designed to stimulate the knowledge of the archaeological heritage and spatial understanding.
With BoP you can populate your virtual destination with decorative elements, reserved spaces, characters, audioguides, historical scenes, etc. Feel the history attending in first-person to the meditation of the Caliph at the great mosque of Cordoba, the reception of ambassadors at Medina Azahara or the training of gladiators at the amphitheater of Mérida (summer 2017).
But the big thing occurs when you travel. If you're in the real place, you will be able to compare both, real and virtual places, to discover what has changed over the time, assisted by your device's GPS. Check it out, it's an amazing experience, which has not been possible until now.
