Situation & challenge
The aim is to promote knowledge and communication about, as well as interpretation of, the important and discoveries that have been unearthed at the Atapuerca Montains, using innovative technologies.
Virtualware have developed a complex stereoscopic installation in particular conditions inside the real cave Compressor. The 3d application enables the public to travel back in time – “a journey to the past” – and live out scenarios from thousands of years ago. Visitors discover, by means of 3D animation, how our ancestors went about their daily lives and how they communicated with each other over 4 periods of human evolution: Homo antecessor, Homo heidelbergensis, Homo neanderthalensis and Homo sapiens.
The project takes part of V-MusT.net, the EU Network of Excellence, the principal objective of which is to help the museum sector to innovate through using new technologies and virtual reality in order to create experiences of added value for the visitor.
