Portalis is an exciting new cross-border pilot project, within its two visitor experience iterations at Waterford Museum of Treasures in Ireland and Ceredigion Museum in Wales, we create a fully immersive VR experience centered around carefully selected artefacts from Ireland and Wales. Through cutting-edge technology, visitors are able to explore these unique cultural artefacts in a way that has never been possible before.
We worked with our six coastal communities together with our experts to determine the set of requirements to feed into the overall design of the AR/ VR applications. Taking this through the design process to the storyboarding process to determine a narrative approach to bring these artefacts and their usage to life. Visitors to our two Museums have an opportunity now to gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of these early artefacts.
With its innovative use of VR headsets and advanced technology, the Portalis pilot project promises to be a game-changer in opening a unique new area within the world of cultural engagement.
The Portalis Virtual Reality (VR) Artefact experience Section 1 and 2 showcases content which is based on archaeological and scientific findings. Section 3 ‘Civilisation’ VR experience is a fictional representation belonging to the Portalis creative team, which is informed by, but not based on, the archaeological and scientific findings of the project.
