Virtual Sackville Street 1916 proposes to explore the 1916 Rising by creating a VR space that maps the streetscape before and after the events of April 1916. Virtual Sackville Street 1916 will draw on the expertise of a cross-section of UCD researchers across both Arts and Science disciplines. Drawing on historic accounts and archival images and film footage it will recreate a visually accurate interpretation of the 1916 streetscape.
Through this project, the following is what the team hopes to accomplish:
-A complete 1916 VR tour with audio
-Setting the project up as a public demo for various UCD outreach events throughout 2018
-Allowing locomotion and control with the KatVR treadmill and the Vive controllers to interact with the demo
