A downloadable experience for Windows

Photographs with depth, so-called stereoviews, were all the rage in the 1800s. With todays VR devices, we have a fairly good medium to explore the stereoviews of yesteryear! This experience offers a selection of vintage 3D photographs from all over the globe, carefully adapted for the VR medium.

The authentic footage, with depth and true-to-life scale, will let you experience the bygone world with a richness unrivalled by other historical VR experiences.

There are a total of 40 stereoviews, including:

  • Ice Cream Merchant, Contantinople, Turkey.
  • The Fish Market. Bergen, Norway.
  • Elevated Railway, New York.
  • The Mosque of Mohammad Ali.
  • Tropical Scenery, Florida. The Ocklawaha River.
  • Japanese Children with their Kites.

Tested on Oculus Rift CV1. Should work on VIVE too, I think.

This is such a cool idea!! I’ve found 19th century stereoscopic photos online before but never thought about doing this. Is it possible for me to add my own photos? (I haven’t had a chance to download it — yet — so I have no idea if this is already made easy inside the app!)

Hi, thanks for your interest! Yes, you can add add your own stereoviews, by placing the left and right images in \media\stereoviews Check out the manual for further details
